Clarion Call #5: Things With Teeth
The use of an image as a writing prompt has advantages and disadvantages. A picture can inspire a thousand words, but may also leave little to the imagination. The temptation becomes to describe or explain rather than to create.
Today’s challenge: try a new way of using an image to provoke a response in your “right brain.” Look at the image just long enough to find what most intrigues you, then put it away and see where your mind wanders. Consider the image a catalyst for your train of thought, rather than a frame to contain it.
This week’s prompt is brought to you by Shot Hot Design. Click on the image to view it in full size, let your thoughts wander where they will, and share the results!
There are only two rules for Clarion Calls:
- If you choose to try the assignment, do not read the comments section before you post yours.
- This is a critique-free zone, and that includes critique of your own offering. Save your analytical skills for Mondays with Linda.
With that in mind, I invite all of you to give it a try. At the end of the year, I have a special honor in mind for the person who most often posts an answer to our weekly Call. So have fun, and stay inspired!
