Short Story Writing, The Writing Life, Writing Prompts

Steampunk Flash Fiction Photo Prompt

As writers, we sometimes limit ourselves by believing we can only write in a certain genre or only write certain types of characters.

This week’s prompt is my attempt to offer a way out.

I have always loved the idea of steampunk – Apart from the Golden Compass series (I’m hoping those count as Steampunk), I’ve never read any. I have, however been fascinated with the art & clothing for years (thank goodness for all you Steampunk lovers on Pinterest!). It really blows me away.

So, with absolutely no experience in the genre, I will try to put together a flash fiction piece based on the photo below – no more than 1,000 words – and post it here next weekend.

If anyone wants to join me, please do – amateurs and experts alike!
