Writing 101: Day Four – A Story In A Single Image

The fourth task, here.

Yesterday, you found inspiration in one word and used it as a springboard for a post idea. Images — including photographs and works of art — can also act as starting points for stories, essays, poems, and personal musings. For this exercise, use one of the images above as the creative spark for today’s post. You might use it as the setting for a story or poem, write about how it makes you feel, or describe a memory conjured by it.

These are free-to-use images — no attribution required. To use one, click on its download link below and save it to your computer. Upload the image to your Media Library and insert it in your post.

If you aren’t inspired by these photos, visit Unsplash.com, a great site for free images. Scroll until you find an image that appeals to you. Tip: Click the four-image grid icon above the first image to switch to grid view, which is easier to browse.


In connection with my day three writing 101, the first word that struck me when I saw the photo above is LOVE, again! you might say, yes LOVE.

I watched this video of Amy, which took place in Downtown Boise, Idaho, USA. She stripped down to wear only under garments in the middle of a busy marketplace and you’ll never believe the response she got.



Watch as Amy Pence-Brown does a social experiment to promote self-acceptance. Here is the video.

I am not expert about love, but one thing I know that loving oneself will get us through the hardships either in life, or in love life, and on the way we might be surprise to learn new factors needed to, just to keep loving thyself balance, vanity is dangerous you know.

We should be resilient to destructive messages/gossips within ourselves and from others, we need to communicate what is our needs and wants, we need to be honest with our desires (not you have to be vulgar), we should accept the things that is out of our control with compassion, and in the process we might learn more and more of our self-worth and be sterling about ourselves with courage.

This is not overnight, we need to build it daily.

It is not selfish to love yourself, take care of yourself, and to make your happiness a priority, it’s necessary.

Is it too much that I ask you to be happy?
