Waiting for _________

Summer Photo Friday Challenge – 7.5.2019

I post a picture; you write a scene. The Summer Photo Friday Challenge is that simple! I will even post a possible prompt to get you started. You can choose to write from the prompt I provide, or make up your own. 

Here is this week’s challenge. Have fun!

She sits on the stone, staring down the road, waiting for ____________

Checklist of sensory reminders:

  • Who is she? Or is it a he in your story?
  • What or who is your character waiting for?
  • Why is this arrival so important? Or is that a mystery?
  • Where is this? Set the scene. What is the character hearing and feeling
  • When is this? (season: hot or cold; morning or evening?)
  • How will this arrival change something in your character’s life?

The goal of the Photo Friday Challenge is to help you, a writer, envision and write new scenes, to imagine new places, and to kick writer’s block to the curb. I invite you to be inspired by my photos, maybe even write your own description of the photo. OR, better yet, post a photo of your own and write that scene.

Happy writing… ~T
