What do you see in this picture? I see a bird flying at the bottom right of the moon. So what, you ask. It's kind of blurry and not very distinct.
But for me, that's the beauty of the picture. That it is kind of fuzzy. It gives my imagination room to run. I can decide if that's an eagle, a dove, or a dragon. And if I let my imagination go, I can think of all kinds of stories.
I could come up with half a dozen without even trying...
1. It's a giant eagle that guards a kingdom.
2. It's a shape-shifter, a hero in his bird form.
3. It's a princess trapped in bird form until her prince frees her.
4. It's a bird sent from a trapped princess to find her prince.
5. It's a dragon.
6. It's a Pegasus.
With each one of these thoughts, I could build an entire story. Complete GMCs, story acrs. A beginning, middle and end. The imagination of a writer or a dreamer is wonderful thing. Could you live if you couldn't dream? I don't think I could.
I'm curious, what do you see here, and where does it lead you?
