Today is the anniversary of our first novel, Blind Sight, becoming a publication, so once again, all of the Picture it & Write prompts in March are going to be a little different than usual. This week, we wanted to highlight the writing style we use throughout the series. As some of you may know, each volume is written split into two books, written so you see two sides of a story told through a different character’s point of view.
So without further ado…
We urge people to join in, comment with your paragraph of fiction to accompany the image. It doesn’t have to follow our story or reflect the same themes. It can be a poem or in a different language (please provide a translation). Anyone who wants to join in, is welcome. This photograph will be reblogged under Ermisenda on tumblr and added to the Picture it & Write gallery on Facebook and Pinterest.
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.
“Happy Birthday, Baby. I had a great time last night at the steakhouse. I can’t believe they made you wear a cowboy hat and yell ‘yee haw.’ That’s an image that I’ll never get out of my head. Let’s go to the same place for my birthday.”

“Wow Mark. You were amazing last night. Forget my complaint about you not wanting to spend time with my friends. You more than made up for it, ;)”

Katherine repeated this process three more times, earning more in an hour at the computer than some people did in a week. She looked nothing like the models she used to post on Facebook. Before taking this job, she would never have thought men would pay to have a woman post “steamy” status updates on their pages, but this generation was quickly becoming socially retarded, if it wasn’t a lost cause already.

“When are we going to get to meet her, Mark?”
“Did you do it all night long?”
The second voice parroted one of the group’s favorite movie quotes.
“Shut up,” Mark snapped, defensive. This girl was special. She wasn’t just to keep his bed warm…not that they had even met yet. He had paid for a Facebook girlfriend; he couldn’t help how they met, he knew this wasn’t just work for her. The things she said…she clearly liked him as much as he liked her.
Whenever they conversed, she was so down to earth and real. He’d stared at her Facebook profile photo for hours. She was beautiful, he would caress her face with his cursor for minutes on end. A model. She was everything he needed a girlfriend to be. A fire had been sparked inside his heart. Maybe she was the one?
