Anatomy Of A Picture Prompt

The Picture Prompt. A staple of bloggers everywhere.

For non-bloggers the concept is easy:

  1. Take a picture, any picture, of anything.
  2.  Write about it.

Types of Picture Prompts you could write:

  1. A Story
  2. An Epic Poem Like The Illad
  3. A Hundred Word Story
  4. A Song
  5. An Essay
  6. A Novella
  7. A List

Side Note: I don’t understand the hundred word story. Is it the challenge of trying to squeeze something coherent in as few words as possible? Sort of like a hair metal song?

Sexy Side Note: I have a picture prompt tattooed on my right calf and a hundred word story tattooed on my left.

And I have decided to do my picture prompt in Haiku Form:

  4. You and my teenage sons should collaborate. With phrases like ‘Empty Boner Holes,’ they would think you the Walt Whitman of their generation…


  5. i love how you ended with a zinger!


  6. The picture reminds me of a cartoon I saw in an early 1970’s feminist newsletter. It had a picture of a skeleton laying next to a woman. The caption? “He told me to eat him, so I did.”


  7. I feel hot and cold all at the same time, Chris. I can’t explain it! A perfect ending. She sure seems happy about something.


  8. As I gaze on you
    Jealousy begins to swell
    starvation starts now


  9. Just popped into my head: “Hey, baby… why not scoot closer? I’ve got a nice bone for you…”
