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).

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.


“My boss is a slave driver,” Victoria complained. “She has us working harder, not smarter.”

“Isn’t it supposed to be the other way around?” Leah asked.

“You would think so. We’re not allowed to think. Not allowed to look for inefficiencies, not allowed to care about the customer experience. No one seems to care that we are fighting an uphill battle against the current without a paddle.”

Leah laughed but stopped herself under Victoria’s glare. “Exaggerating much?”

“No. You know that dog that gets the stick stuck in the stairs? He keeps pushing, thinking brute force is the answer. It’s like that. Unrealistic expectations and no common sense.”

“Dogs don’t have…”

“Oh shut up.”
