Picture it & Write is a weekly creative writing prompt. We invite people to join in by commenting with a work 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.
“What do you think you’re doing?”
“What are you, five?”
“22. I’m such a tourist.”
“No, tourists don’t ask to be buried in the sand. You’re just weird.”
I look behind me, trying not to be obvious about the fact I’ve been eavesdropping. The girl is long and lanky. I would have been able to keep my face poised except that she is wearing mermaid fins as she shouts her commands.
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!

That’s so sweet. Like those videos of people helping dolphins get back into the sea.
To call it planned would be very far off the mark. But, never the less, she had an idea, an idea that, needless to say, did not go quite as planned. She wanted to be a mermaid, and she knew the best plastic surgeon in the business. Somehow; she was able to convince him to implement her plan and somehow she was able to do it all without anyone who would have an idea of trying to stop her finding out. The operation was long and painful, the recovery took months. But in the end; where there had been two feet was now a beautiful fishy tail.
She had gotten what she wanted, she had the look of a mermaid. But she wasn’t happy. The problem was; she couldn’t swim.
Oh goodness! It made me think of those people who go to plastic surgeons to be turned into cats or tigers.
