Monday morning is looming (or has loomed depending on when you read this) so it's time to start the week with a couple of new prompts. As usual one is a picture and one is a quotation.

Have a look and see what they inspire you to tell and then go for it - in 500 words or less!  

Use one or both and you don't need to refer to them directly in your writing, just follow that spark of inspiration for fact, fiction or poetry.  You have until next Sunday at noon GMT so go for it.  Have fun, write some stuff and then use the link underneath to let people see it.  

Here is the picture prompt.  Please credit it if you use it on your own blog.
