A Picture’s Worth

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Well a good picture is, anyway.

I stumbled across a link on Twitter this morning that I just had to share it here. Thanks to @WritersRelief for this link:

It’s a page on Flickr that shows nine interesting pictures from the last seven days. What a great tool for writing exercises! You don’t have to go out and find them yourself. Just go here and pick one.

So now you have no excuse. Go out and write 1,000 words about one of these pictures. Okay, maybe not a thousand words, but perhaps 20 minutes. Or a haiku (the suggestion from @WritersRelief this morning). And when you’re tired of them, click on the reload button and get nine more. Awesome!
