1:1000 is a website that pairs photography with 1,000-word prose. Sound like your cup of tea? Go to Pinterest and select an unclaimed photograph, then write your 1,000-word piece (fiction or creative non-fiction).
My July piece is one of my personal favorites. I loved writing it, loved making it better, and I’m happy it’s out there for the world to read. It features a character that I think a lot of us can relate to – someone who isn’t happy with her lot in life, regrets decisions she’s made, and wishes she could go back to make things different. She compares herself to others and focuses on what went wrong. Oh, and it’s set in an attic that reminds us why we were afraid of the dark as kids.
Give it a read and let me know what you think! Thanks!
