Welcome to Writer’s Island.
We are pleased to now be in our fifth (5th) year here on the Island, providing writing prompts. New prompt(s) are posted every Saturday at 12:01 AM, U.S. East Coast Time. Consider the prompt in depth, then let inspiration carry you.
When you feel what you’ve written is ready to be read by the other Islanders, just post your link right here in the comments section at the bottom of this post. Please leave whatever expanded comment you wish as a part of your posted link. You can also reply directly to any other comment.
••>OK, for the Week #22 prompt for 2011, we are going to change pace just a bit and focus strictly on a visual prompt — no word this week.
Please consider this fascinating image above from German surrealist, Michael Maier. How does it make you feel? What comes to mind as you look at it? Do you get an overall impression, or does a particular element stand out for you? What title might you give this dreamlike composition? Perhaps let that title be your prompt. Linger on the image, and then let it inspire you to write.
I will reveal the actual title of this work when I post next week’s prompt #23, but this week let’s allow only your reaction to this artwork to spark your muse… or choose to go in your own direction with your piece this week. Just let yourself go with whatever it is that moves you to write.
Relax, respond to the prompt when you’re ready — or just leave a comment to say hi! As always, welcome to the the Island!!!
