A City and A Writer
I have had a difficult time committing to a writing prompt because I have been engrossed in Flavorwire’s New York’s 100 Most Important Living Writers. There is so much talent in that small island, it is just astonishing. My first idea for a prompt was – to read the work of a New York writer you love, and mimic their style (this is always a helpful go to prompt). Then I thought, there has not been a prompt lately about place/scene/image.
Google photographs of The Big Apple. New or old. And simply paint the picture in writing. No characters, no dialogue, just the scene. Force yourself, in either two pages of prose or poetry, to just describe that New York landscape. The city always becomes a character, regardless of how we try. Also, peak through the list. I found a number of Christmas gift ideas, and my Holiday reading list.
