Challenge - 28th April 2014

Are you ready to start the week?  Below you will find two prompts, one a picture and one a quote.  Have a look and see what story they inspire you to tell and then go for it - in 500 words or less!  You can use one or both and you don't need to refer to them directly in your writing, just follow that spark of inspiration whether it is fact, fiction or poetry.  

Here's the picture prompt:


Shadow of love: Sadow of a couple kissing
Picture by chidseyc on rgbstock.com
and here's the quote:

A dream has power to poison sleep 
- Mutability, Percy Bysshe Shelley

You have until next Sunday at noon GMT so go for it.  Have fun, write some stuff and then use the link tool underneath to let people see it - if you can put a link on your blog pointing back here, so much the better.  
It is really encouraging to have comments on your work and it can give people a real lift.  Sometimes it is nice to just let someone know that their writing hit the spot.  Sometimes you can give a little help with a suggestion or hint.  Please comment on the other writers as much as you feel able.  The rule with that is the quote from WB Yeats, I have spread my dreams under your feet; Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.  These posts are someone's dreams.

Now go and have fun.

  4. How wonderful of you all to keep & expand the terrific community in which we were involved. Can't wait to join you (when my transformational learning research work is done /or/ perhaps when I can sneak away from it)! Now that you've quoted Yeats - and one of my faves among his quotes, no less - I won't be able to resist! Peace to all, -jody

    1. Oscar Wilde said "I can resist anything except temptation" and who am I to argue with the renowned wit? My angelic side tells me to remind you that your research work has to come first of course... but my angelic side is very out of practice...

      Joking aside, it's great to see you posting here and thanks for the vote of confidence. When you are able to join in and link up I know we'll all be the richer for it. - TM
