So here on Secret Life we want to interact with everyone! We want to engage, grow, have fun. Now I feel like I'm standing in front of a classroom, so I'm sorry about that, but anyway. Here's how it works. You stare long and hard at the image I've picked out, and write something. Anything. A paragraph, a poem, a short story, a conversation, or just a simple description. The purpose is to get some down on the page. After all... we're writers. We're supposed to write at some point, right?
And remember. This isn't about writing something perfect. The word choice can be off, the dialogue can be cheesy, the characters can be two-dimensional. Basically, feel free to suck. Prompts aren't about being awesome; they're about being productive.
Without further ado... be inspired!
My (awful) piece:
I stand at the side of the road and gaze up at the church. It's been two years since I've been back. So much has changed. Everything has changed, really. The bricks are charred, the roof caved in, and the wind carries the forlorn feeling of a thing forgotten. By all appearances, no one survived. But I'm here anyway, because I have to know.
I walk toward the doors.
