Welcome to this week’s featured writing prompt. If possible this week, I’m visiting a vintage store again for the writing prompt. But this time, I’m looking for a specific muse—a photograph of a person—someone I’ve never seen until finding the photograph, someone in a vintage black-and-white picture, someone without a name or a story known to me. Go out and try to find a similar muse and create a new character, a fresh story or poem, and imagine the possibilities of that person’s life.
We enjoy hearing from you, so share your writing with us in the comment section below.
