EXERCISE Picture Challenge #11: Summer days

Discussion in 'INSPIRING MUSES' started by redblood, Feb 15, 2015.

  1. INFO: They say that a picture can tell a thousand words. How many can you find?

    Each week a new image will be posted, and your challenge will be to write whatever the image inspires you to write. It can be anything as long as it relates to the picture. A plot, a scene, a short story, a poem, a character, etc. You can write as much or as little as you wish. It's not the length that matters, it's what you put into it. There is no time limit to these challenges, so feel free to jump in at any time.

  2. Which one are you? A combination, a specific one, or perhaps a bit of all them reside in you? Only summer can find out though, what person you are from the image, and you can know who of them you are by simply self observing. Watch what you do, to whom and how you speak, even the objects that summer glues to your sides and hands as sources of entertainment and amusement in the heat. Is it a book to take you on an adventure? A laptop to learn more from the endless pool of knowledge? A lover to hold and kiss, or even some piece of chalk with which you paint the sidewalks like a canvas?

    No matter what it is you find, the summers still remain the same. Days of rest and fun that caters to who and what ever you are, the same objects at your sides. Please, just enjoy them, and love whatever you may have found within you.

  3. Dreamers

    Humans are fickle things,
    Creatures of pleasure.
    Most don't think much of it,
    But some do the work.

    The Readers think,
    Their minds expanded,
    Worlds in those eyes,
    Trapped inside their heads.

    The Writers hide,
    Concealed behind paper,
    Universes expanding,
    Words spilling from their pens.

    The Artists show,
    Thoughts and feelings,
    A cacophony of color,
    All for the others to see.
  4. This screams school for the gifted to me. Artists, writers, dancers, and creators of all kinds convene on this school for its individual attention to molding talent to its highest degree of excellence. There is waiting list to get in, but for those who run this academy, money talks louder than lists. However, every year a month before school is to begin, anyone can audition, or present art work, or an invention for consideration. A scholarship fund that was created by an eccentric billionaire decades ago, ensures that five such students will be able to attend the academy. Will you have the skills or talent necessary to be selected?
  5. Magic sometimes exists in the smallest of places, and nowhere else is that more true than Shady Grove, WA. A small town of only four thousand people, it possesses a quaint atmosphere, a welcoming population, and an amazing park rumored to have a certain sort of enchantment to it. In truth, Shady Grove really does have magic, locked away in certain people around the town, with tiny gifts that make life just that much easier for the residents, and within the park, these abilities seem to be magnified.

    However, one day, that magic is stolen in the summer, and a few students from Shady Grove High are trying to find out why.
