Writer's Block Obliteration Tip #25: Photographic Lens

If you can find a photograph that can accompany your story or piece, focus on that for a while.  Sit and absorb the imagery of the photograph without rushing over it or assuming you know what is going on.  Write about what you see in the picture—what's happening and what it looks like.  Pay special attention to the subtleties—the way someone's hand is angled towards another's leg, the way the dog is cowering just slightly, the way everyone is actually eyeing the food.Gain more free time for other tasks or for yourself.
