Here are some visuals to inspire a short story, a poem, a flash fiction. Be creative. Dream. Write.
Do you know where you are?
Are you driving alone?
Is someone you don’t know driving the car?
Sunny, but sinister? Are your spider senses tingling?
What goes on inside? Does a cult meet here? Is a psychopath holding hostages and no one on the outside knows it yet?
What is this man pointing to? What is in his pouch?
Are you filled with sympathy? What thoughts do you have about how vulnerable he is on the city streets? Could he be your new protagonist?
You are locked inside a store with an angry bear!
How do you outsmart him…or not?
Is this a story about the past? What did this tree witness? What role did it play in the lives of many? Who is mourning its passing? Who was the violent agent who brought down such a monument to life?
Write the stories you feel and see in these images.
The world is waiting to hear your song.
