For some of us, blogging is personal. Others are trying to educate or entertain; many more are hybrids. Yet we’re all storytellers. Creative Writing Challenges help you to push your writing boundaries, show off your blogging chops, and, hopefully, spark more post ideas.
To participate, tag your post with DPchallenge or leave a link to it in the comments. (It would also be great if you could link to this post to encourage people to take part – the more the merrier!) Your post should be specifically written in response to this challenge. We’ll keep an eye on the tag and highlight some of our favorite posts on Freshly Pressed on Friday.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, right? Prove it!
This week’s challenge couldn’t be simpler: tell a story based on this picture.
You can take this in whatever direction you’d like.
- Write some fiction. Who are these people? What’s their backstory? What’s going on in this picture? What happens next? Construct a history for us.
- Write from your own experience. Do one of these people remind you of someone you know, or of something that’s happened to you? Connect the dots for us.
- Go on a flight of fancy. Who knows what pops into your head when you take a look? Grab the first thing and go with it!
We’ll tell you the truth behind the photo in next week’s challenge post, but we’re sure it won’t be nearly as interesting as what you come up with!
