Very sorry I haven’t been keeping up with Picture it & Write as normal. I’ve just started a new job and Christmas has been utter chaos this year. Please stick around. Ermisenda is finishing chemo soon and may be able to return to writing. We’ll keep you posted on that as things progress.

Welcome to Picture it & Write, a weekly creative writing prompt here on ErmiliaBlog. I invite people to join in to our creative writing prompt. 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.

“Why are you crying? This is the best woman empowerment song in a decade.” Annie shook her head while I sobbed. She’d watched Frozen before me; I was a bit behind the curb when it came to pop culture. I didn’t want to explain it to her then, not sure how to find the words, but I’d always been different. I’d always seen the world in a different way. To me, Let it Go was the saddest song I’d ever heard. Didn’t she hear the same words I did? Elsa had to distance herself from her family to be who she was. She’d tried to hide, never learned what she could do. What if Mozart hadn’t been allowed to play piano? What if my parents had never bought me my first camera?
