Pictures of the Week


Inspiration Station

How does it work?

Our Inspiration Station is designed to get the creativity flowing. We upload different pictures and quotes every week for you to comment on and interact with each other. Just click on the image, fill in the details and add your comments. 

Here are some additional tips:

Inspiration for a good story can come from anywhere:

  • Think about a time you laughed so hard your belly hurt.
  • Think about a scary moment in your life.
  • Think about an interesting person you once met.
  • Think about an exciting place you visited.
  • Think about a situation that a lot of people talk about.
  • Think about a picture you once saw that you really liked.
  • Think about an expression or quote that you really enjoyed reading.
  • Think about some of the crazy dreams you had.
  • Think about the times in our life that you remember the most.
  • Think about a message you want the whole world to know.
