Writing Prompt: The Sunny Entrance

Posted by at 2:41 am in Writing Prompt | Permalink


This week’s Writing Prompt is inspired by eighth-grader Mimi Shang, who won a Gold Medal in the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards for her Mixed Media artwork titled “The Sunny Entrance.”

In this piece, I see a lot of purple and blue, which are not so happy colors to me. But in the corner on the wall, there is a mirror with a reflection of a window, and there is yellow and light there. To me, that represents hope for tomorrow.


With this in mind, my caption for this artwork would be:

“Mom, I would love to clean the house and all, but tomorrow looks more promising.”

Doing chores is something that we all probably have to do at some point in our lives, and I hate cleaning my room! But it has to get done eventually, right?

Look at this image, and find symbols you can relate to. Then come up with a creative caption and share it in the Comments for everyone to see. I know you all have some great ideas, and we want to hear them!

    i cant really see anything messy about this room but if it were untidy then i guess that would have been the picture of my room.

    ok well, ima neat freak so i would clean this room inside out and repair everything so i guess the mirror means that with a little grease u can make anything shine!
