Write into Surprise

"The most difficult part of writing, I think, is contriving a way to be open to surprise. Not surprise in general, of course: that’s merely another kind of sameness. But the right surprise: the realignment of attention or the rip in consciousness that will advance the argument or the meditation." 
                                                          ~ Linda Gregerson

Study the sequence of paintings and write about surprise!

Ask questions.

What's unlikely?

Create the unexpected shift.

Add a tinge of adventure.

Develop worry into wonder.
Probe the playful.  Create dialogue to reveal and revel in 

Add a change of venue and develop new characters.
