Ink This!

Standard

Dear Inksters,

Welcome to this week’s Inkling — an idea worth writing about. Each week we will post Inklings that you can write about throughout the week. Have fun as you write, exercise those imaginations, and let those wonderful words grow into fantastic pieces on the page.

This week’s Inkling is this photograph from Eva Ho:

Open your writing journal and see where this picture, your pencil, and your imagination all lead.

Not sure where to start? Here are some ideas:

  • What do you see in the photograph? Describe it. Remember to use all of your senses (seeing, hearing, touching, smelling, and, yes, tasting!)
  • What is happening in this photograph? Tell us.
  • Imagine yourself walking through the space between these rocks. What would you see during your journey? What temperature would you feel? What awaits you on the other side?
  • Every mountain has a “face” or “faces” — sides that have identifiable features like ridges, ravines, and cliffs. In this photograph, though, this formation looks like it does have a face. Who is the face in the mountain? Tell the face’s story.
  • A line to work with: “The face stretched underneath ribbons of rock.”

  • What is happening in this painting? Tell us.
  • Imagine what the girl’s voice sounds like. Then write in that voice.
  • Imagine what the eye’s voice sounds like. Then write in that voice.
  • Complete this story: “The eye tapped the girl on the shoulder. She turned around and …”
