For Mysteries & More!

Writing Challenge 46

What whispers are heard among the stalks? What secrets are found within? You decide in this month’s 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.

Last month’s second summer-themed challenge photo was snapped at the edge of a great lake in Summer 2015. A row of colorful kayaks were parked at the water’s edge. Barely visible among the trees across the water are the buildings of a fort. Where was the scene snapped? At the edge of Ontario Lake in a small lakeside park in Niagara-on-the-Lake.  View image here.

Now it’s time to search for kernels of wisdom (and story) for your next challenge…


Happy Writing!
