Sometimes it can be difficult coming up with a new story, and I’m not talking about the dreaded writer’s block. Quite the opposite! When I write, sometimes my only focus is on that one story. If it’s a novel, I can become lost in it, but sometimes I want a break. That’s when a writing prompt can be amazingly helpful in getting the creative juices going! Which is what happened here :) My writing group needed a break, and what better way than with a writing prompt? This is the story I wrote following this prompt:
“Listen to a piece of instrumental music that moves you. Then, come up with a story to go along with the song. Let the emotions it evokes be a guiding theme; its ups and downs the flow of the story.”
In this case, I listened to Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata. For a longer version of the song, click here. That’s also where I found the photo for this blog. It seemed fitting.
