LOOK! 101 Pictures To Prompt Creative Writing

Here is a fun way to use imagery to ignite that creative side of you!

Writer’s block can get the best of you. You want to sit down and write a book. But what do you write about? You can use pictures to prompt creative writing and get you started on your next story! Pictures can also help you get ideas flowing for individual scenes within a book you are already writing. So jump write in and have fun!

How to use pictures to prompt creative writing

The first thing you have to do is look. Pick a photo. Then use these questions to inspire your creative mind while you look at the photos:

  • What are your first impressions of the photo?
  • What feeling do you immediately get from it? 
  • Describe what you see with as much detail as possible. Use lighting, facial expressions, and texture in your descriptions.
  • Describe your senses as if you were in the photo (sight, touch, taste, smell, hearing)
  • What would you title the photo?
  • Write out the scene that the photo depicts. For example, if it is of a boy on a dragon flying, write out what is happening. You could write a scene where the boy and the dragon are best friends exploring unfamiliar terrain. Or the boy could be urgently trying to save a friend. It is entirely up to you!
