Light and Shade Challenge Friday 23rd May 2014

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 in your writing, just follow that spark of inspiration whether it is 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.  

Don't forget, if you want to do the Monday prompt as well and you haven't yet managed it, there is still time. Just scroll down and have a look. That prompt also finishes at noon GMT on Sunday. You don't have to do both. You can do one, both or neither. The aim is to have fun.

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

Here is the quote.

the rarest chords in the soul's harmonics Are found in the minor strains of life.
E. Wheeler Wilcox. Life’s Harmonies
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.
