Characters, Graphics and Writing with Icons

Writing Prompt

In this media saturated age, most people have favorite icons, characters or graphics, Mickey Mouse, Hello Kitty, horses (especially, horses galloping with the wind whipping their mane), smiley faces, a particular type of flower, lotus, roses, orchids, iris, etc. . Select one of your favorites and brainstorm a list of words and ideas which you associate with it. Select a few items and free write for a five minutes--no stopping and see what ideas spin from it. Your free writing can be stream of concious, use the words from your list to make a series of connected or disconnected sentences, etc. Don't self-censor. Just write.
