Hailstorm Tree

Check out this stunning photo of a tree awaiting an approaching hailstorm. Free-write about one of the following:

  • The havoc the storm will wreak
  • What significant things have happened beneath this tree
  • Who else awaits the storm, and what happens to them (or what is interesting about them)
  • Use the image as a visual “story starter”–the very beginning of a tale

Alternatively, free-write using as inspiration one of the altered photographs from the FARK photoshop thread where I found this photo originally. They range from the bizarre to the crass to the hauntingly beautiful. Kevlar51’s apocalyptic tree would make a particularly unusual inspiration.

Keep in mind as you write that the best settings in fiction often serve almost as an extra character within the story.
