After the ball


Welcome to this week's writing challenge. As usual we're providing a picture and a quotation and it's up to you to use either or both to inspire a writing piece of no more than 500 words. The piece can be fiction, fact, poetry or just about anything else and between you and me we never count the words anyway so have fun. You have until midnight GMT next Tuesday to submit your contribution and we look forward to reading them.

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

The quotation is:

"Many's the hope that have vanished"
- "After the Ball" lyrics, Charles K Harris 1890

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.
