Here we are! We made it to the halfway point of Blog Month. Two weeks down. Two weeks to go.

Assignment 3 of Blog Month

Select one of the four pictures below:





(Need more options? You can select an image from our Instagram account.)

You are going to tell the story behind this image.

Take a few moments and connect with the picture you selected. An easy way to jump-start this process is to ask questions like:

  • Who is this person?
  • Where has this person/object been?
  • What was happening minutes before this picture was captured?

Once you have latched onto inspiration, it’s time to write.

Hop on over to our blog to see what this post could look like.

Remember, what you write is connected to your goal, to get children sponsored via your blog during Blog Month.

This is a creative writing assignment at its finest. Don’t hold back.
