Challenge - Friday 2nd May 2014

I can't believe how many people have jumped in with this. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the wonderful support. The replies to the challenge have been stunning, there has been some amazing work done.

It is still really exciting here and a lot of ideas are being thrown around. We are still settling into things, so please let us know in the comments or on facebook if you have any suggestions or just want to let us know what you think.

Anyway, are you ready for the weekend?  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 100 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 is the picture prompt. Please credit if you use it.

And here is the quote:

She tells enough white lies to ice a wedding cake - Margot Asquith

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.  

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!


  1. Jeez you scared me. Still working on the dream prompt!
    Captcha? Really?

    1. Oh feel free to work on the dream prompt - the two overlap and the deadline for each is Sunday at noon. No idea how the Captcha ended up active - I've turned it off. -TM

    2. It's a good thing Tom is here - I never know where to start on that! I hope you are having fun! LM x

  2. Sorry I missed the cutoff this time.

    1. Hey Troy thanks for commenting - if you have something written and just missed the deadline feel free to post a link here in the comments.

    2. I agree, if you have something written then link in the comments and we can share with facebook. I hope you like the new prompt as well. It's great to see you. LM x
