I usually have something in my bag of tricks that matches the image prompt. This time though, I wrote something fresh this evening that I hope works with the image. Let me know if it works, or not. :-) Happy writing to all!

Guilie said...

The lovely photo and the efforts of my friend Isadora led me to write something too.

I saw the image, then I saw the title of the image "untitiled moments". I thought let's explore
those moments, and came up with my creation.....do explore it out!

cheers,
Ankush!

Bluebell Books said...

wordcoaster said...

Enjoyed the prompt, though my entry might be a bit long-winded. Sometimes I get a little carried away ;)

ccchampagne said...

I really wanted to write a short story (for once), but I got stuck with the line 'in among the wheat and barley' in my head... I know it comes from somewhere but I can't place it! *sigh* So I used it instead. Thanks for a great prompt!

Bluebell Books said...

awesome to see you all,

have fun!

Life said...

i posted up my short love story....though its not so similar to the theme....but the picture just made me feel a girl in deep love......so here is my story of the girl in love and how she was proposed....:))

mjshorts said...

I found this picture quite haunting and then this tanka emerged.

e.a.s. demers said...

*Phew* Finally got mine submitted... now, off to read some of those brilliant posts!

poetpost said...

Please remove the first post by Iris and leave the second. I have two wordpress and accidentally pasted the wrong one the first time. The correct post is Three is Enough, a 507 word article. The irisinbloom post was for a silly poetry submission. I tried to delete or remove but it would not allow. Thanks!!!!!

hannah said...

was in the mood to write a short story tonight and did so before i saw the image. this would be my first submission. hope the story does some justice to the image. =) looking forward to reading everybody's piece!

Bluebell Books said...

Thanks for the lovely contribution.

The Write Girl said...

This is my first prompt as well. Thanks for sharing this lovely meme.

I have been looking for the new short story slam prompt since Thursday and see only links to previous slams. Is there a specific url we can use to access this? I'd love to participate but have seen no prompts since Monday's rally or whatever.
Thanks
