Visual Writing Prompts – How & Why

I personally love visual prompts for my every day writing. They spark my imagination quickly. An interesting photo will usually create a start of a story very quickly. Writers and other creative people often have a mind that works similar, so I thought it might be fun to have a little blog here where I share the photo’s that spark my imagination.

How to use the prompts? Well, in any way you wish, of course. My suggestion?

Take the photo and let your mind wander off. Incorporate it in the project you’re already working on, or use it as a way to jump start your creative day. To get the creative energy flowing 😊

Any rules? Nope.

  • just carve out like 15 minutes
  • take the first thing that springs to mind
  • grab a (digital) pen & paper and: GO! write

Give yourself permission to:

  • write without editing
  • write whatever you want – prose, poem, dialogue …
  • have fun while making up the story that goes with the photo

PS you can take the photo pinned to this blog too… is this your ideal writing spot? Or not, so what would it look like…
