Picture prompt story

the Rugby World Cup 2015

‘Newcastle Upon Tyne’

Mac started to process these words in his mind. He could imagine it as a news headline...

New Castle Upon Tyne! Read All About It!

It sounded ridiculous! He had been put in the “Teacher guided” group of his class, the lowest of the low. All people in the group worked by an important-looking timetable. They were doing writing first, and all of them were given a “picture prompt” to write about. Mac sat at his desk for a while, and started to think. “What can I do with this?” Suddenly, he had a magnificent brainwave. “What if I write about trying to write about this picture?” He exclaimed to himself. He put the words down. ‘Newcastle upon Tyne.’ He skipped a line, and then put down the words ‘Mac started to process these words in his mind.’ It was all coming together now!

Wait a minute…
If this is about Mac trying to write a story, then that means…

Oh. Right.

*Walks away sheepishly*

Now, let’s look at this picture. Hmm…
It looks likes the Sydney Harbour bridge! Now, this was the bridge in the town where this year’s Rugby World Cup was held. Man, that’s a tough sentence to type.

*Repeats sentence to himself a few times*

Seriously, That was tough to type. Now, am I supposed to start writing about this picture now? What? I’ve already been through a page and a half? Impossible! Let me see!

*Looks at screen for a few minutes or so*

Cool! I have!

*Walks away*

What do you mean, I’m not done yet? I’ve got to fill in HOW many hours? FOUR HOURS? That’s it, I QUIT! See ya never, losers! I’m off to win the lottery. WOO-HOO!

*Uses a stick of C4 to blow a hole through the wall*

Well, now we need a new writer…
Perhaps I could help?
Ok! You're hired!
Cool! Now what?
Just write about the picture!

*Looks at picture for a few hours*

Got anything?

*Walks outside in a huff*

So… now what?
The End?
