I’m honored to be in a writing group with author Kathleen Lane. She has a strong, compelling voice and an uncanny ability to mix humor, heartbreak and oddities of the human condition. I learn something new about myself every time I meet one of her unusual characters and hear how that invented individual interprets the world.
Kathleen recently started a blog featuring pictures of objects. Her Thing Collection is great for browsing, but also great to use as story prompts.
Here’s today’s assignment. Go visit the Thing Collection. It’s on more than one page, so be sure to look at everything–or is that every Thing? Pick one of the images and write something about it. Or respond to the prompt using another art form to jumpstart your creativity.
Kathleen is collecting stories and art about her objects and plans to post some of them on her blog. You can email her the results of your efforts through the contact link on her website.
