It has been a crazy week, and I’m a day behind, but better late than never, right?
Here’s another image I found. A picturesque medieval village, nestled in between the forest and a mountain. Sheep are grazing outside…there aren’t any defensive walls so it must be a relatively peaceful place, or maybe just too poor or remote to need barricades. The heavy gray clouds make everything feel damp and cold. But aside from the shepherd, the place seems strangely quiet. Not much bustle going on–where is everyone? A visitor approaches. Who is he? Just a traveler passing through? Or is he coming here with a purpose? Is he steadying his sword to keep it from hitting his leg as he walks, or is he getting ready to draw it? What does the sign say? Could be something boring like the village’s name. But then again, it could be something else. Maybe a warning. Use this image as a writing prompt and decide the fate of this village and its mysterious visitor.
If you come up with something good, feel free to share in the comments. 🙂
