Three Things: The Flying Baby Edition

2017 January 16

Three Things Banner

This week I’ve been pondering flying babies. Oh fine, maybe not… maybe I just happened across one of the below photographs and I thought it would make a crackin’ good writing prompt. Either way: this week, let’s study these babes suspended in mid-air and come up with a story behind them. Go!

My dreams, of late, have been fairly quiet and unmemorable, which I frankly find a little boring. In an attempt to jump-start that dream machine of mine, I’ve compiled three surreal images to ponder. Take note, brain! (And you, too, dear writers!)
