Write a Scene Photo Prompt

Pumping Your Muse Prompt:

Write a scene inspired by this photo. Originally I was going to write a prompt about breaking a habit, but this photo opens the door to a variety of options. Here are a few questions to get your started:

*Whose hand is this?
*How do they feel?
*Where are they?
*Why do they smoke?
*What does the room smell like? Or the character's hair and clothes?

* * *

If you enjoy prompts, check out Pumping Your Muse. The prompts included in this creative writing book challenge the imagination to take new direction and if followed to the conclusion of the book, provide a detailed outline along with completed scenes and developed characters for one novel, as well as a solid start for a second novel.
