Landscape plays a vivid part in many creative works – providing a backdrop, establishing a mood or even introducing peril.
Inspired by Alice Oswald’s poem Dart, I invite you to use the landscape pictured here (Tal Y Bont in South Wales) or one of your choosing to set the tone for your tale. Who walks here, what challenges might they meet, and how might it reflect on their internal struggle or external interactions?
Don’t hold back – if you feel moved to, bring in the voice of the stream and hills to add a deeper sense of your setting. After all, half of the joy of writing is experimenting, and you can’t know what will or won’t work for you unless you give it a try.
Don’t forget, if you write something prompted by this image and idea, I’d love to know. Just send an email to Judy(at)socket creative.com. You could end up published on SkyLightRain.com!
