During the past few months I’ve been volunteering at the Art Shoppe in Minneapolis to help while someone was out on vacation. Getting to know and speak with other artists and authors is one of the highlights. My payment is in helping the creatives in the shop get paid for their work. There’s something satisfying about making a sale from something handmade even if it’s not mine. I think if I owned a book shop, I would have the same feeling.
Today’s introduction leads me to the next prompt. You can picture yourself walking through a museum or into a local gallery. Choose a photo or painting and begin to write. Write for 5- 10 minutes. Give yourself the freedom with this prompt. You can have a scene with people talking about the pieces as you watch them interact. You can be one of the people staring at the piece of art when someone bumps into you and a conversation begins. Maybe you’re with someone else and a conversation begins. It’s all about perspective.
Yes, this is a short post today but the point of my blog is to help other writers with exercises and prompts. There will be more tomorrow.
Remember to comment and let me know where I can your prompt. My posts are Monday through Friday.
