Cruising My Hood Writing Prompts Series – Introducing Shadow


by M. J. Joachim

This is Shadow. He and I cruise the neighborhood together. It’s a good place to find writing prompts, especially when you remember to bring your camera with you. I’m making a point to do so more often, starting today. You simply won’t believe some of the neat things I found, and getting Shadow to sit still for his profile pic…simply unheard of! Opportunity and a ready camera made my day on this pic.



Writing Prompt Ideas from Shadow’s Profile Pic

  • Research article on beagles
  • Importance of licensing your dog
  • How to choose a good dog collar
  • Shadow Sees Series (numerous stories about what Shadow sees)
  • Photo Lesson on shadows (not the dog, but his shadow in the picture)


I’m sure there are a few ideas relating to lawn care too. That’s the thing about pictures. They inspire us with new writing material all the time. Now it’s your turn. Please share the ideas for writing prompts that popped into your head from seeing this picture in the comments.

Thank you for visiting Writing Tips.
