For Mysteries & More!

Writing Challenge 37

This month’s challenge fits in with the holiday season…

Each month, The Poisoned Martini presents a photo to spark your creativity.  Such images, because of their visual nature, vividly speak to writers and spark ideas for writing.  View the image below and write a scene, a short story, a chapter, a novella, or maybe even a novel.  Consider what the image means to you, what it reminds you of, or explore what it could be.  Ponder what you see and then put pen to paper or finger to keyboard.

Last month, featured a mysterious crate.  Part of an archaeological exhibit in the Landesmuseum, the Swiss National Museum in Zürich, Switerland, the crate contained the skeletal remain of an unknown soul found in the region.  The accompanying placard identified it as a woman’s burial from the mid-7th Century AD discovered in the Glatt Valley near Bülach, a municipality in the Zürich canton.  The photo was taken in August 2014. View the image here.

‘Tis the season for this image.  What scene might it suggest or how might it relate to your story?

HollyHappy Writing!
