At times the weather can set the mood and outlook of an author/writer. How we feel transfers to the story we are writing. This is especially true if you hate one season more than the other.

Since it is the middle of winter here in the northern hemisphere this writing prompt will force you to switch gears to a warmer time.

Important Information! The February 2020 Visual Writing Prompt is one of the pictures being used in The Corral’s Visual Writing Prompt Contest. Contest Title – “Family Time”. Deadline for entry May 31, 2020.


About Writing Prompts

There are several reasons writing prompts are important. They help shake Writers Block, start the thought process for a piece of flash fiction, short story or novel. Some writers who are in between writing projects will us them as a writing exercise. They know writing everyday is a way to hone and keep their skills sharp.

Thee are two types of writing prompts. Written and visual. ThunderHorse Publishing uses the visual. Why?

We all see the picture, event or person. However how we process what we see is unique to each individual.

The Writing Prompt Game

The rules are simple. All you will need is a visual writing prompt, paper and writing instrument along with a group of friends. Each person has five minutes to write a short piece about what they see, what they think happened and what the outcome will be. The winner is the person with the best story that answered all the ‘W’ questions. Who, What, When and Why along with Where ?
