Writing Challenge 15

It’s time for The Poisoned Martini’s latest Writing Challenge!

As a means to inspire writing, The Poisoned Martini is featuring an image to spark creativity.  Such images, because of their visual nature, vividly speak to writers and spark ideas for writing.  The idea is to view the image below and to write a scene, a short story, a chapter, a novella, or maybe even a novel!

A closer look at last month’s picture reveals its a Pullman train car!  This particular car, named Sunbeam, is permanently parked on the grounds of a famous President’s son.  Robert Todd Lincoln served as general counsel of the Pullman Palace Car Company under founder George Pullman.  He subsequently served as president of the company after Pullman’s death.  So it is only fitting that this nearly fully restored example of Pullman luxury is stationed at Hildene, Robert Todd Lincoln’s estate in Manchester, Vermont.  View the image here.

Now for this month’s image … there’s no question that local Syracusans and those familiar with the city of Syracuse will recognize this one …

Hall of Languages

Happy Writing!
