For Mysteries & More!

Writing Challenge 49

Will you have time to write this 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’s image featured a former landmark bookstore on Main Street in Lake Placid. With Pipe and Book closed in 2007 after nearly 30 years in operation. As of October 2015, when this image was taken, the storefront was still unoccupied.

Now take up your pencils, your pens, or your keyboard and follow your instincts and write. What will this month’s image inspire?


Happy Writing & Holidays!
