Many writers use images to help them get to know their characters or their setting. Lisa Rivero recently posted about using this technique for historical fiction.
Here’s today’s challenge. Find a magazine. Cut out five images. They can be objects, people, furniture, food–whatever attracts your eye. Arrange the cutouts in a line. Then write a 1,000-word flash fiction piece using the images in the order that you’ve chosen. Or, if you’re working on a novel, use the five images in a scene.
