Notebooking Daily Writing Exercise July 5, 2015

Daily Exercise Genre: Ekphrasis.

Ekphrasis is from Greek meaning the description of a work of art as a rhetorical device. That's actually pretty straight forward, but another way to look at it, is it's highfalutin fan fiction, usually about paintings or pieces of music, but it can be about virtually anything. Look at or listen to the following piece of art and write a piece of prose or poetry that is inspired by some aspect of it.

Today's artwork is...

Raspberries and Salmonberries. Photo taken by Francois de Melogue.

These berries are plump and look juicy. I would recommend reading up a little on salmonberries, as they're a slightly out of the ordinary fruit, and we writers love those slightly out of the ordinary things, don't we?
