I stumbled upon something yesterday that gave me a reason to stand and do a little happy dance. It is great for both writer and educators!
I am so excited because I am a person that loves to use writing prompts. I find that they often allow me an opportunity to find a launching pad to start a story. I love the randomness. The thousands of places that one prompt can take me. Add a visual aspect to this randomness and my mind can go crazy with possibility.
The site I found is called Visual Writing Prompts (guess how I found it – Google is so good to me!) From the home page, you can scroll through many images that also have an actual question attached to the image that can spur many fantastic stories.
Here is an example from the site (link to this prompt can be found here). It can be downloaded for the educators and writers alike. Hop on over and take a look at all the others. Don’t be limited to the prompts, use the images alone or combined whatever starts the stories in your mind.
