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.

Explicit content warning.

They tell me otters rape baby seals. They tell me my uncle lied to me, catfished me. They tell me squirrels are just rats with fuzzy tails. These statements, these “truths” do not work for me. Knowing them does not make me happy; knowing them does not affect my daily life. And so I intentionally forget that any of it is true. I design the world I want to live in. I create a world of magic and illusion. Everyone chooses what to believe. They choose whether or not to believe in religion, Fate, magic, vampires, the end of the world. I choose to think that squirrels have nothing to do with rats.
