NaNo Writing Prompt No. 4

This week’s writing prompt is a photo I took near sunset one evening on Rarotonga.

Tropical islands have a magical feel for writers. There were many reasons why Robert Louis Stevenson spent time on Samoa. One of them was the inspiration he felt in the tropics. Rarotonga isn’t very exotic for New Zealanders – but it is for a lot of other people. What do you think of when you see this scene, with the lagoon lapping against coral sand and the glorious sky as the sun sets? Could you imagine characters from a novel in a place like this?

I took this near sunset on a day when it wasn't raining, just outside our little unit.

This is the last NaNo writing prompt – and I hope your writing goes well for you.
