What Do You Know About Haunted Creeks?

Take 60 seconds and write down everything you can think of that has anything to do with creeks. You might consider how big the last one that you saw was, or
how fast it moved...
did anyone fish from it...
did you ever see tadpoles...
did you ever see any wildlife on the shores...
how would you know if it was haunted??

So, how long was your list? I hope that you have at least 25 items on it!!

So, why am I asking??  At some point, you might want to work a creek into your novel, and you are going to need enough details to bring it to life. The more you know, the better your story.

The Spider Web... hahaha

*I have seen this used on a big front porch and it looks sooo real. If you are writing a Halloween story, this would work quite nicely as inspiration!


Story Starters For a Rainy Saturday Afternoon

She Believes in Little People

I was talking to a lady a couple of days ago who I might be distantly related to. We have the same surnames on our family tree and both families lived in the same town, so there is a good chance that we will find a connection.  She also said that Aunt Jane (from Ireland btw) believed in Little People!!  I don't know her well enough yet, to ask her to elaborate... but I would love to know more!! Can't help but wonder what lead her to believe or is simply something that is common place in Ireland?

If someone was to ask you if you believed... what would you tell them??

What happened To Larry?

Larry loves the countryside. He can walk for hours and hours but always arrives home in time for dinner. Today he didn't. What do you think happened to him.

You have sixty seconds or you can leave me a five word sentence.

Would you use barb wire?

I now live in the country, but there is absolutely no reason for me to use barb wire on our  property. But, I did like the picture. Now if you were going to use this photo for inspiration, would your character take it down or leave it as it is!!

Still new here living in the country but can't wait to see what wild flowers will be blooming here come summer!!

Describing a Frozen Rose

You might think that you know how to describe this rose. Spend sixty seconds thinking about how a child would describe it.

Would a little girl describe it differently??

How Would You Work Aligator Al Into Your Story?

Yes, I named him lol... and was wondering how you would work him into a story. Feel free to consider the intelligence of the woman beside him.

And no he isn't real lol... but he sure looks like he is ready to take off at least one of my fingers... or he is laughing lol

How Does This Smell?

Have you ever tried to describe what chlorine smells like? What if someone added too much? How would that smell?

And yes, I chose this photo because it reminds me that summer will return lol. You just wouldn't know it at the moment.
