A Double-Edged Writing Prompt

Photo #1

 Let's try a writing exercise today that has two parts. There are two photos of the same thing. Sort of! 
Freewrite for about 10 minutes--write without stopping, let it flow--using photo #1. Then, go to photo #2 and do the same. They are both water but should bring different thoughts from the recesses of your mind. Write about water from different perspectives.

Next, turn what you have for each one into a poem, an essay or a short story.

  1. Great prompt. Wish I had time to play!

  2. Save it for later. The freewrite should only be about 10 minutes. Maybe you can eke out two 10 minute stretches.
