Writing Prompts: Using Old Media Clips

Writing ideas are all around you but you have to seize the moments and write what you feel, see or hear at the point of inspiration. One problem that you might encounter is that you may find it difficult to narrow down and hone in on a specific topic. Objects, people, places, events and personal interest all lend themselves to a great short story, poem or novel. Try this one: look at a not so familiar movie or an old video clip and let your mind wander and allow your fingers to float across the keyboard and amaze yourself as you begin to create a new work of art.

Here is a clip to get you started. Clip Title: Rhythm and Blues Revival from the Internet Archives. Have fun! https://www-muehlen.archive.org/details/rhythm_blues_review
