Picture it & write just keeps landing on the perfect days of this holiday! I hope everyone is having a great start to 2012 and what better way than to kick it off than with Picture it & write. Let this be one of your first writing exercises of the year with many more to come! Let this be your year for writing (for the writers), for painting (for the painters), for eating (for the eaters, definitely me!) and whatever else you wish to achieve this year. 😀 2012 is ours.  Check the post below for what we accomplished and what we’ve got planned for next year.

I urge people to join in, comment with your paragraph of fiction to accompany the image. It doesn’t have to follow my story or reflect the same themes. It can be a poem or in a different language (provide a translation please :)). Anyone who wants to join in, is welcome. This photograph has been reblogged under Ermisenda on tumblr.

My mother jumped up on the table and started wiggling her hips. The crowd was throwing their arms up in the air, cheering her on. I couldn’t watch. I hid behind my fingers but I could hear my name. She was shouting for me to join her. This was the most embarrassing New Years party I had ever attended. I moved towards my mother and tried to coax her to come down. She didn’t. She stayed up there, she shook her skirt and called out to the crowd. I could see my mother’s body jiggling like jelly. Skin folded and rippled. I cringed. A couple of others joined her on the table with drinks in their hands. I left with my cheeks feathered rouge from the heat of embarrassment.
