Welcome to the Picture it & Write creative writing exercise. I invite 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 (please provide a translation). Anyone who wants to join in, is welcome. This photograph will be reblogged under Ermisenda on tumblr and added to the Picture it & Write gallery on Facebook and Pinterest.

Please continue to write however you’re inspired, but add a tag to the beginning of your post if there’s mature content in order to keep Picture it & Write an engaging event for all of our followers.

Creative Writing Exercise: Metallic Ink in Water

Original image by Alberto Seveso.

The poison dripped into the water, spreading across the bottom of the pond. The color faded as the poison dissipated. The chemical company saw the clear water and decided the parts per million must be small enough that no one would ever know.

Over the months, everything seemed fine. The company continued to make occasional trips to the pond since as of yet, no fish had turned belly up. It was not until the next generation when cancer in the town was on the rise that people noticed fish with five eyes, two heads, hearts on the outside of their bodies, and one that glowed while its ancestors didn’t.
