Let me know if a thread like this one exist or not.
Thanks a bunches.

Out of these two options, which would you rather choose? Writing prompts or Picture prompts? Explain your reasoning for choosing the option. What are your thoughts?

Enjoy!!!

I'd say both just because not that I only know what's being said but also I could see the visual. However, if I to do a story, I'd do the a writing prompt first and then a visual one

Both are quite a bit of fun...I remember some picture prompts we did in seventh grade about forests and dragons, and I could have written forever about those...but at the same time, writing prompts offer more room (in my opinion) for explanation, since there are no restrictions based on images (this is all for fiction writing, of course).

For some sort of English writing, like an analysis, pictures would only be useful if the theme was painting/photography/art. If it was about a book, then possibly the cover art...but otherwise, a writing prompt is better.

So to answer the question, both for fiction, writing for English/History/other classes that AREN'T creative writing.

You know what's funny. I was in advanced placement (basically college level English) in junior and senior year and I have no idea what you're talking about.

I think it is easier to work with a picture prompt but the two are really opposite ends of a spectrum. A writing prompt sets the premise for a story while a picture prompt sets the objective. In a sense, one is working forward and the other backward. That said, I definitely think the picture prompt is more enjoyable; it gives you a lot more creative freedom.
