I’m pleased to announce I have been invited to participate in a unique writing project with several very talented writers, whose work I admire.
Triptychs is the third book in the Mind’s Eye Series. The book combines visual art and the written word, in the form of short stories and poetry. In Triptychs, the same photograph was given to three different writers, and each had to interpret the image and write either a story or a poem. A unique take on a collaborative writing project, it is fascinating to see how one picture can inspire three completely different tales.
I’ve posted a teaser below, in the form of the photographs I was given and some notes about the stories I was inspired to write. Once it is released, I’ll post the links.
This first photograph inspired me to write the story A Storm is Coming, the tale of two very different sisters and what can happen when jealousy rears its ugly head. I’ll admit I must have been in a strange mood when I wrote the story, as I began with haiku’s to set the scene.
This beautiful photo of a carnival at sunset had me stumped for the longest time. I stared at it repeatedly for almost two weeks before finally coming up with an idea, prompted by a suggestion from my wife. I was finally inspired to write the story A Kiss at Sunset, about a young man who finally finds the love of his life – in a manner of speaking.
