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.


I stand at a precipice, frozen. I’ve spent my life walking through life, tilted backwards. Instead of acting, I am pulled along. I resist. Pressures all around me, push and pull. I stay in jobs I hate. I only went to college because my parents made me. If I was running a 5K, I’d be that person whose dog is doing all of the work for them. But that is not what people see. People see me standing straight. I am at the top of a platform, victorious. They do not see my struggles. I only let them see my successes.
