Takhayyal writing prompt 101: Beautiful Autumn


Welcome Ladies and Gentlemen, Artists, Poets, Writers, Authors, Dreamers, Friends and Family; Welcome EVERYONE to Nadaness In Motion's MONTHLY picture-prompt writing challenge Takhayyal aka Imagine.

Can you believe it's prompt no. 101?!

November happens to be in Autumn and it's quite different depending on where you are in the world. If you're in Egypt, like me, it's still hot during the day but nice and breezy at night, if you're in Australia, you're heading into summer, if you're in the US some people are already getting snow! And if you're in some parts of Europe, you may be enjoying a cold breeze with some beautiful autumn colors in nature ;)

When I saw my friend author Nadja Losbohm post this image, I told her this needs to be a writing prompt. No photo editing was done. The picture was taken in Tierpark Berlin (The Berlin zoo in former East Berlin)

So without further ado, here's the writing prompt.

And since November coincides with National Novel Writing Month aka NaNoWriMo, feel free to use the image to inspire your characters or add setting to your novel.
