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.
“How come you get all that room, just the two of you. We are crammed in here like sardines.”
“Because we contour cheeks and she doesn’t care about you. Her glasses hide the eye shadow.”
“Shows what you know,” the cotton swabs called down. “She just got contacts.”
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!

Thank you Scrapydo. I had trouble coming up with anything so I’m glad you enjoyed it.

Here is my effort for this week ~ I think your story is excellent too
I loved the way you combined the two prompts. I was considering the merits of modern makeup vs. recreating Shakespearean makeup and the consequence for actresses of an authentic Shakespearean performance before your piece even began. Bravo.

Thanks Ermilia ~ Definitely a case of great minds thinking alike
“Oh God! You’re such an idiot!”
“What do you mean?”
“You don’t really think about the other people in the house do you?”
“I don’t know what you are talking about.”
“Take for example those cleansing pads there. How am I supposed to????”
“Easy. You just reach up and…”
“Exactly! Remember; I’m a foot shorter than you.”
“I’ll redo it now.”
“Make sure you do.”
That sounds adorably like my mom. She’s the short one in the family at only 5’10”. At least she was until my sister-in-law. She’s probably not much over 5’5″.
