A Graphic to Start your Story.

Posted on: August 23, 2009

gatorCan you think of a story that could be made from this simple graphic? Ask yourself the five w’s?

What about this one?   coyoteThis simple coyote has a devilish grin that might be a great story starter. Let your imagination run wild.

Need another one to get the creative juices rolling? guy_4 How about this one? Who is this boy? What is this boy thinking? Why are his hands on his hips? Where is he at? How will he solve the conflict that is on his mind? When will that happen? It is up to the writer to make their story come to life.

what a goood post…inspire me so much..thanks


Nice little entrance. I didn’t know you did this kind of thing. But then, Ihaven’t been around Jacketflap for quite a while. I just haven’t had time. Or rather, I haven’t made the time to come over to see what all is happening there.

I just started my own blog on wordpress so that I will have yet another venue of my own. I may have to watch yours very carefully and gather pointers to use with my own.

Hope you don’t mind. Tade care have fun. Clauds

Thanks so much for the nice words. I love blogging. I wasn’t sure that I would but I do. It is definitely a great outlet for my creativite side. Eventually, I want to be able to add videos and stuff like that. I am working on being less computer challenged. lol.

I’m always looking for new things to add to my blog . . . so be sure to check back once in a while.

My Favorites:

I love the children's movies Wizard of Oz and the Neverending Story. Both movies make me feel the lesson that hope is alive and well. After seeing UP this past week, it just might have a chance at being added to this list.

I love the cool colors of blues and purples.Those colors are peaceful for me.

I love The Velveteen Rabbit. Even as an adult, I still feel the urge to cry when he becomes real. I know, silly, but a good book can make me laugh and cry as it takes me on a magical journey.
