Picture prompts

A picture is worth a thousand words, is the old phrase. I certainly think a picture can inspire a thousand words. I’m not ready to revisit my novel in any detail right now but I can share a couple of early images, which helped me to write certain sections.

I love this photo, below*. Part of my book was set against the backdrop of the Cuban Missile Crisis, and this was around that time (a little earlier). I just like thinking about the big decisions these two young men faced.

And this, 1961 café culture in Paris, which I found here. This was my screensaver when I wrote my novel. It’s hard to let it go.

I’ll be sharing more picture prompts over the coming months. Lots of new writing going on.
