Wednesday Writing Challenge: Picture Prompt

Welcome to the Wednesday Writing Challenge!

Every Wednesday, I pose a new writing challenge here on the blog. These challenges come from books on writing, classes I've taken on creative writing, or sometimes just from my own imagination. If you're an author, hopefully they will help you get your writing juices flowing and help you improve your craft.


Some of these challenges may be very good ones or may include an element I consider highly important for writers to learn...so occasionally I may cycle through some of my favorites more than once. 


??  Want to Participate  ??

The Wednesday Challenges are open to all readers. In order to participate, simply comment on the challenge post with your response to the exercise. Not only is it good practice, but you could win something nifty and fun!

 And now...

***Here's Today's Challenge!***

Write a 5-sentence story about the picture above.

Include sensory details of at least 2 of the 5 senses (sight, sound, touch, taste, smell).

Remember to give your story a beginning, middle and end.

Post your results in the comments.




***Hints and Tips:***

You're writing flash fiction here; it's got to be short, sweet, and to the point. Find out the most important detail you want to focus on and draw it out.

Try to include the sensory detail using senses that aren't often included. Sight is easy; try for taste or smell, or describe physical feelings like roughness, callousness, smooth, gritty, or undulating.

  1. He wrapped himself around her, feeling her soft silky skin beneath his fingertips, breathing in her intoxicating smell of honey and lavender. She moved her head back letting out a soft moan as he kissed and licked her neck, all the way down to her breasts. He loved the way she sounded when she moaned, like a soft little bell that tolled ever so quietly, her breath catching as she looked him in the eyes, basking in their pale blueness. They moved in unison together, each of them moaning, biting, and clawing each other until they reached the high of their climax, both exploding, then embracing each other. They were one, destined to be together for all eternity.
