Practice Makes Perfect

So I’ve come to a decision.  Nothing mind altering or ground breaking, but one that might help me.

I’ve stated in previous posts on how much my writing lacks imagery or anything that might pull the reader in, so I’ve decided to try something that might make me a (hopefully) better writer.

The plan is this: once or twice a month (I’d like to try for once a week, but lets be realistic) I’m going to pull a picture from the internet, post it in a blog, and take that picture and turn it into a little short story based on what’s happening in that picture.

I’m not starting tonight, I’m just too tired, but this could be something entertaining for all (ok, the two) that might read them.  Feedback would be appreciated.  As I will be trying to teach myself, I’d like to know what people think goes well, what doesn’t, and pointers are always helpful.

I'm just a little mischievous.

    I really like this idea and think it would be fun to try as well…would be interesting on the different stories each person would write about based on a picture :0) I a super excited to see the first installment 🙂
