Monday Motivation - What's a Picture Worth?

What’s a Picture Worth?
As the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words. Yes, it is cliché, but photographs can make great writing prompts.

Most of the trees have lost their leaves by now, but I captured this peaceful autumn
scene last year. While the image is limited to the camera lens, what you write about the picture is only limited by your imagination. The photo I’ve included could have been taken in many different locations and lead to various stories. It can evoke a river in an old-fashioned American village or across the ocean on property at an estate in England. The water could be a meeting place for WWII Resistance spies who must cross a border to escape their enemies. Or perhaps, it’s the setting of a romantic rendezvous. What does it make you think about? Write about it for five to ten minutes. Next week I’ll tell you where the photo was taken!

Please share your thoughts in a comment below for a chance to be in this week’s drawing for an ebook copy of Brave New Century and a $10 gift Amazon gift card!
