Visual Verse An Anthology of Art and Words One image, one hour, 50-500 words. The picture is the starting point, the text is up to you.
Visual Verse Published my short story!
This month I participate again to this interesting monthly writing event that brings together Art and Words on VisualVerse.org Anthology Press. I found it to be very challenging for me last month to write something inspired by a picture as starting point to a creative, timed, writing process.
The painting that you see here above was the starting point image assigned this month by Visual Verse:
“we are connecting with Camden Art Collection in London to bring you your new writing prompt. In June, Camden Council will launch a new portal bringing their phenomenal collection to a public audience. We are thrilled to be able to share an image from this collection exclusively with you.
This painting is by Jean Cooke, an artist we love, who once said: “Everything that happens when I open my eyes [each morning] is a surprise. It’s like dying and coming alive again every day.” You’ll be able to view this image, along with other works from Camden’s extensive collection, at Swiss Cottage Library over the coming month.
From this picture I was inspired to write a short story “Memories of Happiness”
This short story is my second short story first published on Visual Verse and is not published here on my Blog yet. I am very happy to share it with you as a nice achievement of my creative writing that now is part of this interesting Anthology and published on:
