Tell me a story (4)…

Happy Monday.  The weekend was too short.  I’m grumpy.  Hence the moody picture for this week’s picture story.  Write me some words and maybe I’ll feel better.  As always, comment with your story, poem, jib, whatever…  And check out last week if you haven’t already.  I like my story.  Is that narcissistic?  Ok, I’m word vomiting now.  Go on with your business.

Have a picture that you think would make an interesting story? Email me:

P.S. Anyone recognize the model?

Tell me a story (3)…

Picture stories are probably the only thing I look forward to on Mondays. 

No new guidelines.  Just look at the picture and write whatever comes to mind.  We’ve had poems, first person rants, one-liners….make it as long or as short as you’d like.  In a few weeks we’re going to change it up a bit so enjoy your freedom while you can!  Check out last week’s if you haven’t already.

Think you have a photo that would make a good story?  Show me:  Don’t worry, you’ll get credit and a link to your website and/or blog.

Tell me a story…

I’m the kind of writer you rarely have to bug when it comes to writing.  I tend to make up stories about everything.  I imagine entire lives for strangers.  I can see it all, start to finish: birth, struggle, triumph, loss, favorite ice cream.  This being the case, I rarely do writing exercises.  I sit and stare at a wall and play the movie of a character’s life in my head and write it down when the credits roll.

But this doesn’t mean writing exercises aren’t fun!  Introducing the first reoccurring series here on Sociable Ink:  Tell me a story.  I’m going to post a photo below and I want you to tell me what’s happening.  You can write a few lines or a whole paragraph or a poem or a song or whatever tickles your fancy.  Make me laugh, make me cry, make me fear for your sanity.  Depending on how many entries I get, I’ll probably pick my favorite later in the week.  Keep checking back to see what others have written and feel free to comment on your own favorites!

I’ll add my own story once others have gotten the ball rolling.  Off you go, dear readers!  Off you go!
