Writing Challenge 16

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.

Syracusans would have certainly recognized last month’s picture.  The iconic building, slightly hidden by trees, sits like a sentinel atop the hill Syracuse University calls home.  One of the first buildings to grace the campus, the Hall of Languages was built in 1871-3.  Horatio Nelson White designed the Onondaga limestone hall with its three cupolas.  It is, perhaps, the most recognizable of the University’s structures, excepting the Carrier Dome.  View the image here.

Now for this month’s images (yes, there’s more than one) … and even more recognizable than the last!  After all, it’s Springtime … and April …

Happy Writing!
