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.
Damn it! I’d cut the hole incorrectly. The metal didn’t line up; I’d wasted a fourth piece of wood. Perspective photography was kicking my ass. Damn it! The light behind me blew. I tensed and then nearly collapsed in frustration when the entire room went dark. I’d blown a fuse. I should have known better than to have the four lights, camera, and saw all plugged into the same outlet extender but they shouldn’t make that many slots unless they expected you to use all of them.
Picture it & Write now supports The Girl Effect, a movement empowering girls to break the cycle of poverty in their communities, countries, and world. All profits from the publication are donated to this cause.
Everyone is welcome to use the button, just link them back to the Picture it & Write category or Ermiliablog! Share your love for Picture it & write on your blog with the image below. Be proud, and stylish !

The apple gazed into the looking glass and saw itself as full. A beautiful and healthy apple that appeared strong as well as red. It burst with life and seemed far from the compost bin. In a breath the tables turned its apples fruit exposed and the apple found itself miles away from town and tree; its childhood’s humble grove. Was it the caterpillars and bees that sucked our apple dry? Or was it the mirror that told the apple lies? Slowly slipping to its core the mirror showed our apple truth. Its grainy, smooth, and browning edges are good for only the ground. Our apples last hope is for its seeds; to make good apples that will not become addicted to pesticides. The End
My first thought when I saw the image was anorexia but I didn’t want to go what I considered the obvious route. Absolutely loved your direction, where the apple sees itself as healthy rather than fat. Your piece is exactly what I love about picture it and write.

Thanks for contributing. Interesting twist on the age old tale. Did the fish mean something different than the serpent?
Good one Elia! Here’s mine! https://joe2stories.wordpress.com/2015/05/24/picture-it-and-write-purpose/
If I’m not careful, I’m going to get on my high horse about the “purpose” of reproduction as though a woman is broken if she is unable or chooses not to have children. I will say that your writing stirred something, which is one note of good writing. I don’t think anything has a single purpose, Even something like an apple, assuming it has purpose at all, nurtures other creatures, nurtures the earth, and spreads it’s seeds. I’ve gritted my teeth through religious services where it’s proposed that everyone should drop everything they have to go on mission trips as though it is not just as important for people to work to provide the money and supplies that are used on mission trips.
