Writing Prompt – Tiles

The next time you’re in the bathroom, or somewhere with patterned tiles or slate, stare at the patterns until you see shapes. (Admit it, we’ve all done this half asleep on the toilet in the middle of the night!) Usually, these are quite abstract looking, so try to find figures or faces and interpret the emotion and action. How does the ‘face’ look? Pensive? Distressed? Is it a person? Are they hunched over? Holding an object? Why? Maybe it’s an animal. Is it prowling? Grooming? Mid-mating dance?

Write a paragraph (500 words, no stopping to edit) about the things you interpret. Start by dot pointing the ideas and see what story you can come up with. If it flows, don’t stop at one paragraph!

Have fun! #motivationmonday
