Say What!

This ‘Say What’ Wednesday is going to be a little different…

A few years ago now I was given a great writing prompt–the photo you see below. When they say a picture is worth athousand words, well…it’s true. But give any two people a photo, a drawing, a painting or any visual really, and you’re sure to get two very different stories from them, even if some of the elements are the same. This is what I love about writing prompts. This is what I love about writing.


I generally won’t be posting my own work here, but thought I would let this one slide in for you all. Click on the link below to read the story in PDF form. Enjoy!–and tell me your thoughts in the comments, too! I’d love to hear your take!

  1. Great Story! I wish that at the end I got introduced to Violet’s mom, I couldn’t imagine how she would react when I told her I was Puerto Rican… 🙂
