Sometimes we need a little help to get started. One prompt that seems to work is using an unfamiliar photo.
Go online and search photos about dogs, kids or events. Or maybe food, clothes or places to see.
Choose the one photo that speaks to you.
Give yourself permission to ponder for no more than three minutes.
Set a timer and write for eight to ten minutes.
You might now have a good beginning for a story or essay you’d like to edit and lengthen.
Have fun with this one.
