Photo Prompt – The Nature of Writing #8

Advertisements


Hello Readers, Writers, Teachers, and Children! I often take inspiration from nature when I’m writing, and I love to photograph flowers, trees, insects, and anything else that will be still long enough. So, I’ve decided to combine the two with The Nature of Writing photo prompt.

I’m not sure what ate these leaves, but the cutouts are astonishingly perfect!

Take this photo for inspiration and run with it! Whatever you happen to discover, leave it or link it in the comments below. And remember to stop and smell the garlic blossoms!

Photo Prompt – The Nature of Writing #7

Hello Readers, Writers, Teachers, and Children! I often take inspiration from nature when I’m writing, and I love to photograph flowers, trees, insects, and anything else that will be still long enough. So, I’ve decided to combine the two with The Nature of Writing photo prompt.

When I took this picture, I thought that I must’ve gotten a one-in-a-million shot. Turns out, bees often hang from these flowers. One year later, I got an almost identical shot from the same flower bush.

Take this photo for inspiration and run with it! Whatever you happen to discover, leave it or link it in the comments below. And remember to stop and smell the garlic blossoms!

Writing Roadblocks

Hello Readers, Writers, Teachers, and Children! Do you ever feel like your characters are falling a little flat? Do they lack the depth that you love when reading a story? Do you feel blocked because you don’t know what your character would do next?

The secret to creating a great character is simple. In fact, there’s only one step. Get to know your character! Because, after all, if you don’t know who your character is, how are you going to convey them to anyone else?

Try this nifty outline for a character sheet. Just put yourself in your character’s shoes and fill in the blanks like you’re at the DMV. You’re going to learn things about your character that you never knew or wanted to know. Here we go!

I once used this with a hamster named Samson. I found out that he learned to be a survival expert by watching TV, and he memorized the periodic table of elements from a poster (Not much for a hamster to do in that little cage). If you discover anything interesting or bizarre about your characters, leave a comment about it.
