I made my own photo prompt to share with you today.
I was walking through the New Hampshire woods with my friend Jennie Steinhauser, when something caught my eye. A flash of blue in a moss-covered tree stump. A closer look -- it's a baby doll tucked into a hole in the stump.
Your writing prompt for the day...tell a story (or write a poem) about who put the doll in the tree stump and why. Faeries returning an enchanted child? A kid who's too old for toys, but can't bear to throw the doll away? Or tell the doll's story. What has it observed from its tree stump?
Enjoy and happy writing.
