I have found my visual writing prompt challenge much more fun and interesting that I expected to. I started rotating the challenge on twitter a couple months back; something just for fun to create a little interaction with interested new followers, not expecting mush response. Color me painted with surprise :D
Visual writing prompt: http://willowraven.weebly.com/return-to-dune-towers.html Write a short for this & I'll post it w link to you
Each author that submitted, using this same image as a visual prompt, has come up with a literary short or poem, each unique from the other. It's amazing to see the visual/text relationship working in reverse. I'm usually creating the art based on the words, LOL. I never imagined there would be so many different stories for the same image. I'd love to see one of these authors take the image and run with it, turning it into a full novel. :D
Today's submission is by P.S. Arabella (Twitter: @PSArabella). Be sure to check out her links below for more of her writing. :D
"Off in the distance, she could see it, Dune Towers. It was a captivating landmark but to her it was just a beautiful prison. For her people, she would do this; she had to do this. She would become his. She wondered what he was like. Like all the people on this world, she had heard the stories; knew of his famed encounters with their enemies. He had brought peace and prosperity to a land that had been at war, but even with all the technology at his disposal, he was still known for his barbaric ways. Her heart was heavy having left everyone and everything she knew behind, but she still had hope. Hope that the day would bring with it a new beginning of peace and happiness for her just like it had for this world. As the hover board brought her closer to her final destination, she held her head up high and resolved not to let this challenge defeat her. She would win this battle and the war within the confines of Dune Towers."
Isn't that awesome? Intrigue, suspense, and romance in one paragraph! Be sure to swing over to twitter, or one of Arabella's other networks, and let her know what you think. Keep an eye out for this writer!
Want to take the challenge, too? Write a short for this artwork, and I'll post it with links to your website and/or network profiles.
Onto wrapping up the next book
Until next time ...
