Light and Shade Challenge Monday 26th May 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 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.  

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

Here is the quote

Anyone breaking these rules will be loved and forgiven in the usual manner

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.


  1. Thank you for this prompt. I wasn't certain what I was going to do for today until I saw your picture.

    1. I'm really glad that you are enjoying this. It's great to see you. Lyssa M x

  2. It's all in fun guys. I write fiction. Hope you like it! Thanks for letting me play again. I know you'll be running me off soon if I keep submitting posts like this one. :)

    1. Don't you dare go anywhere! Except possibly to Toxteth on your next visit lol! It's a nice piece with good dialogue and it follows the rules - keep them coming! Lyssa M x

  3. I've missed a week or two but it's great to be able to participate again. It's a great challenge. My entry started off as part of the Friday challenge but due to the wordcount I added it to Monday's instead :)
