Sailing the Sea of Imagination
I'm currently working on a manuscript for Pumping Your Muse for kids. I love to encourage kids to be writers. Don't know what the title will be, but I'm working through the exercises with two children and having a blast. They started out thinking it's too much work, and walked away yesterday excited and with their first scene written.
My purpose for this blog is to help pump your muse, too, so that you too walk away with a new scene, character, skill or idea. If that happens, drop me a line at dsundblad (at) theinkslinger.net. You can also contact me with questions.
For today, we'll use this photo prompt. Look at the photo and if you don't know where to begin answer these questions:
Where are they going?
What led up to them setting sail.
What do they smell?
What do they hear?
What do the feel?
What do they see?
Have fun as you sail on the sea of imagination!
