This one’s a pretty darn simple prompt: Look at the photo in the article linked to above, set a timer for 15 minutes, and start free-writing. If you want to do something more specific with this, use one of the following formats:
- Imagine that the phenomenon in the image appears in a piece of fiction you’re currently writing, a fiction world you like to set your stories in, or, if you have neither, your favorite world used by another author. Start writing.
- Pick a specific genre (fantasy, dark fantasy, horror, science fiction, Western, romance, mystery, etc.) and work the phenomenon or image into that.
- Imagine that the image shown is the first scene in a first-person narration. Write the first page of this narration.
- Imagine that the image is part of a prophecy. Write up the prophecy and/or explore what happens when the phenomenon finally comes to pass.
