Monday Sparks — Writing Prompts: What’s the Story?

peoplew-2592030_1280As distressed as the people are in this photo, they provide a wealth of inspiration for a story. Who are these women? Sisters? Mother and daughter? Friends? Are they sad? Worried? Scared? I think the woman on the left has confessed something, and the one on the right is very moved, either to sadness or anxiety.

What story do you think is the behind the photo?

Monday Sparks — Writing Prompts: What’s the Story?

lovew-2706241_1280So many stories have been written about cats and dogs, usually as enemies. This photo inspires a fresh perspective. So why are the cat and dog friends? Are they stranded on the frozen tundra together? Did one save the other’s life? Here’s my inspiration.

Cat: Thanks for scaring away Louie.

Dog: That’s what brothers do. Louie is just a bully. But I suppose he can’t help it since he’s a bulldog.

Cat: Do you think I look much like a cat?

Dog: Don’t listen to that dumb bulldog! Mom says your a dog, same as the rest of the litter.

Now it’s your turn. What’s the story behind the photo?
