Picture Prompt #2


I think this plays as not only a great starting point for a story, but also as a great writing exercise, especially for characterisation.

How to get going

  • Take a look at this photo, and pick one person as a writing point for your story.
  • Look at the expressions? What emotions do they hold? Does this help with what tone to write in?
  • What are they doing in this crowd? Do they feel comfortable?
  • Do they blend in with the crowd? Are they here alone or with someone.
  • Whose point of view are you going to write it in?
