Vivid Word Pictures

In our last Writer's Toolbox session we were talking about writing vivid word pictures. Authors need to include enough information in their writing to paint a complete and vivid word picture for their readers.

Today in the lab you will be given the chance to choose a picture, and to try to capture the story behind it. After selecting a photo, you will write a few sentences to paint a vivid word picture. Your sentences will then be posted as a comment below this post. Hopefully your readers will be able to guess which of the pictures below inspired your writing. Remember to use some of your earlier Writer's Toolbox lessons to create really strong sentences.

Good luck and have fun!

  14. I am just an old bike left in the fight. I tried to tell
    Jim the 14 year old to stay but he just ran away. It didn't seem like he wanted to stay. Considering he just found someone else and left me by myself .I thought people liked mountain bikes but I guess that wasn’t right. Siting by the sea while the waves come up on me. I also sit upon an old rock that to my shock he has never even talked . No one will let me be while I sit by the sea. I just want someone to rid with me. Oh will you rid with me and stay with me? You see I’m just an old bike.
