A Picture is Worth
Ten-Thousand Words


Writer Instructions:

Find a photograph. In a drawer. In your wallet. In a magazine. Tell the story--true or fictional--that you see in the photograph.

Use one of your own photographs. Or use the photograph of a friend.

Just find inspiration in a picture. Find ten-thousand words.

WritingFix's webmaster--Corbett Harrison--shares some of his favorite photos for this exercise on a page at his website. Click here to see Corbett's photos.

WritingFix also offers a mini-workshop that asks you to zoom-in or zoom-out on the details in a photograph. Click here to see that workshop.
