Totally Optional Prompt: Get Surreal

Merriam-Webster defines "surreal" as "marked by the intense irrational reality of a dream". Wikipedia says that surrealist works "feature the element of surprise, unexpected juxtapositions and non sequitur".

Surrealism is not made up of completely random elements thrown together any old how. A surrealist creation has its own coherency, its own mood, and its own imaginative logic.

For this week's

Totally Optional

prompt, I'm offering mostly visual inspiration. Browse some famous surreal artworks at

Mark Harden's Artchive

and some contemporary surreal art at

Thrilling Wonder: Surreal Art

Come back Wednesday night or Thursday morning and let us know how it felt to get surreal!

Hello, I am going to be posting a blogroll of writing prompt sites on my writing blogs and was wondering if you would mind if I put your link up there.
