Wednesday Writing Prompt #2

Wednesday Writing Prompt #2: Image Inspiration

One of my favorite creative writing activities is finding interesting photographs that inspire me to tell a story.

When I was in 8th grade, my English teacher had us do this exercise and I absolutely loved it. I wrote a story called “Dr. Soter’s Pink Couch” inspired by a photograph of this particular couch. My story was quite bloody and I have no idea why my mind turns to the macabre in the face of something so ordinary as a pink couch, but that’s the magic of this particular prompt!

Below are a few images I found that intrigue me and will hopefully inspire you.

(I’ve included what information I could find about each image below.)
