Writing Exercises

Earlier in the week we used the image below as a writing prompt; today we are going to use it as a part of our writing exercise.

In today’s exercise, I would like you to explore the negative emotions that this picture inspires. Just as positive emotions provoke readers, so do negative emotions. Negative emotion can be a powerful tool a writer can use to enable their readers to connect to their word.

One of the hardest things that people have to reconcile is that age destroys. These cars represent a golden time and positivity, yet they are degraded and sitting in a barren and unproductive field rotting away. In what way are these cars and the field they sit in like life? Connect the picture to man’s fear of aging and death and express it in an analogous form.

Please share your results below.
