This Week's Prompt:
Find a portrait painting online and assume the voice of that person and imagine a backstory for your "other self." How does it feel to be looked at all the time? Is there anything in the background of the painting that may offer a glimpse into this other person’s life you’re trying to imagine? Lose your self and let your imagination take off.

Next Week’s Prompt:
Craft a poem that connects to a folktale, Bible story, fairy tale, mythology, etc., and gives us a new perspective, turning it on its head.

The Rattlecast livestreams on YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter, then becomes an audio podcast. Find it on iTunes, Spotify, or anywhere else you get your podcasts.
