Writing Prompt with Art by Nancy Canyon

"In the Center" by Nancy Canyon

This is an art piece that writer and artist Nancy Canyon has allowed us to use for our writing prompts.  There is also another creative writing prompt with art by Nancy Canyon on our Prompts for Writers site if you would like to see that, too.

Today you are welcome to free-write from today's image.  Just go where your mind takes you.

You can also repsond any way you wish (poetry, creative nonfiction or fiction) to the following starter lines:

In the center. . .
I'm in the center of. . .
She wanted to be in the center of. . .
If only he were the center of. . .
