Sunday’s Storytelling

Every Sunday, I like to post an old-fashioned writing prompt to help get those creative juices flowing before the work week starts. I’ll post the first line of a story, if I was to write one based on this photo. You try, too! You don’t have to write a story based off of it, it is just a fun exercise in creativity.

Alright, let’s get jiggy with it. I’ve chosen a darker, more haunting picture for this week. I’ll go first. If I was to write a story based on this photo, I would begin with the line, “Everyday, I come to sit on the same old bench, alone. Away from the rest of the world, and that is how I prefer to spend my Sunday afternoons. Alone. Even on rainy days like this one, but today, today was different. Today, a man rested in my spot, and he acted like he knew me…”

Your turn! Think of the first few lines to a potential story, and please share it in the comment section, if you wish. Maybe this picture will evoke a story, write that next poem, or simply exercise those awesome writing skills. Give it a try!

She watched as the clock ticked away on the mantel, and she wondered–and wondered!–when Lord Wraithborne would appear for their rendezvous.”
