Motivation Monday ... Old houses

Every Monday, I'll post a writing prompt or exercise to get fingers typing, pencils scribbling and creative juices flowing. If you'd like to participate, leave a link to your blog post in the comments.

This week, imagine stumbling across this photo in a box of old family mementos in the attic. You've never seen the house before, nor heard mention of it, but something earned its place in a box of your family's most prized possessions. Where is it? Why haven't you seen it until now? What went on there? How does it make you feel?

Use this exercise to write a poem, flash fiction, short story or fictional diary entry. I'll post mine next Monday before I set the next writing prompt. Enjoy!
