In stories, doorways are a unique kind of magic. They are transitional, they are a mirror to the doorway that a good book gives us to another world, and they allow us to move beyond the everyday change into something truly spectacular.
Happy weekend! Here’s this week’s image prompt and writing exercise for the week ahead. We can’t wait to see how you get inspired by it.
A Hole in the Wall
Imagine that it is a cloudy day and you are on your way somewhere important but where you’d rather not go.
As you travel you notice a door, hole, or window in a wall that you have never noticed before and you feel utterly compelled to go through it.
Write a paragraph about finding the doorway but not being able to find a way through.
Then you discover a way in. What is it? How and where did you find it? Are you going to go through or not?
Write a paragraph about whether you decide to continue to your important destination or to go through.
If you carry on with your journey, write about how you feel now you’ve left the opportunity behind. If you do go through, what have you discovered?
Whether you use our suggested exercises or come up with your own work inspired by the weekly hublish prompt, we’d love to see it.
Each month we’ll choose one favourite piece created in response to each image. Each winner will have their work published on the site and receive a gift from the Hublish store.
