Writing Challenge 42

It’s time for a Writing Challenge!

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.

May’s challenge featured “Lilliputian structures standing by the sea.”  In reality, they they are mere hovels that belie a dark history on the Caribbean island of Bonaire.  The structures were slave huts, built in 1850, for the slaves working the nearby salt ponds. View the image, taken in February 2015, here.

This month’s image foretells your writing future, perhaps.  What will you write?
