••> The twenty fifth prompt for 2010, “UNLEASH”, inspired by this image.
You can let yourself be inspired by this week’s word itself. What are the levels of meaning one might attach to the word ‘unleash’? For example, to free, to let loose, to set in motion, to throw forcefully… A few synonyms are: untether, unattach, uncork, disconnect, release, unhook, and unlock.
Or let this wondrous image entitled “Lost Boat”, from Spanish artist Silvia, evoke in you the inspiration to write. Hold it for a while in your mind's eye, then whatever it is that strikes you as you view, express it.
So, the word ‘unleash’ and it’s numerous meanings, or the image itself — whichever sparks your muse… or choose neither for your inspiration, and instead, go in your own direction with your piece. Just let yourself go with whatever it is that moves you to write.
NOTE: if you reference the art piece by Silvia, please credit her by name and link to her site. Thank you.
Relax, respond to the prompt when you’re ready — or just leave a comment to say hi! As always, welcome to the the Island!!! 😉
