Photo Prompts

Simply put: photo prompts never fail. I could do this all day with young writers! I just l-o-v-e those first moments after I give them a first line or a starter idea, then show them a photograph.

First there’s a pause filled with silence. Inevitably, some start writing immediately. Others ask a question or two. Some stare out the window then back at the photo. Some get up from their seats and move closer to the photo. But no matter what, after a minute or so, the room is filled with the fantastic whisper of pencil lead being etched across the blank page.
