Writing Kindling #1

Three times a week I will post a picture, video, song, or sentence to “kindle” your creative writing! To kick off, we have an illustration by the late American painter, Coby Whitmore.

Coby Whitmore

Ask yourself: What is she looking at? Why is she hiding behind the curtain? What’s going on in her head? What sort of expression is she wearing? Write about who she is, what situation she is in, and what she will do next. It can be a poem, short story, long fiction, anything — let the kindling commence!

I’d love to hear what you come up with. Feel free to share your writing in the comments!
