I've been up since about 7:30 and I haven't accomplished anything besides house chores and working my way through a Bible study. So, as you can imagine, today's post is simply a photo. But it's not just any photo. It's a collage of the 9 most-liked/commented on IG posts from last year. When I look at the variety of photos and remember what was going on during each snapshot, I can't help but think how many things can happen in a year. Do you ever think about that? Last year, I attended my first real art gallery exhibition. Last year, I wrote book three of my Tales of Y'Dahnndrya. Last year, I let go of some activities that were taking more of my time than I could allow. Last year, I got to play keyboard for my church worship band. Last year, my youngest daughter started making slime and I got to watch her experiment and smile a lot. We still have to take the days one at a time, but shouldn't we treasure them more?
What does this have to do with writing? Well, they do say write what you know. Memories are made up of what we know and what we've experienced and observed. I could use each of these photos below as writing prompts for flash fiction (if I knew how to do that properly). They're all pretty expressive, except for my Camp Nano shot and my meditative coloring one, though I think I could figure something out for those cherry blossoms. Maybe one day, I'll try that. I'd love to practice writing using photo prompts. It would be something new for me.
