Hi all! I hope you’re having a GREAT weekend. Happy Labor Day.
I thought it would be fun to brainstorm a Labor Day themed story together. So I hope you all will throw ideas out there. Who knows…perhaps we’ll come up with enough creative fodder for me to move forward with the story and offer it here as a serial story soon. What would you think of that?
We are going to use the photo meme for the brainstorming aspect of this post. Put in the comment section your “what if” ideas:
1: Who is sitting at the desk containing the items you see?
2: What room, item or object does the key unlock?
3: To whom is the letter written? By whom?
4: What is the significance of the flowers? Who brought them into the office and why?
5: The broach is a family heirloom. Why is it on the desk today with the letter and the other objects?
6: What do you suppose is going on in this scene?
7: A young, noble young lady (who is also a virtual stranger to the surviving family members, but not to a member recently deceased) inherits the cameo necklace. Speculate as to why?
8: What is the significance of Labor Day in our story’s setting?
9: What time period should we set our story?
10. What about season and setting? Is it snowing out? Summer? Where in the U.S. is our story taking place?
11. What is the importance or urgency of the calendar in the image?
12: What is the feather about? How does it apply to our story’s theme?
13. What other objects are on the desk that we can’t see?
14: Suppose this is a romance. Who are our main characters?
15: They meet because of an object on this desk. Which one and where?
Thank you SO much for participating. I can’t wait to see what you all come up with!
Also, toss out some title ideas for the story depicted in this image. Have fun!
