Light and Shade Challenge Monday 16th June 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. As it is the middle of summer here and nowhere near any date when I would use fireworks I thought now was a good time to include my attempt at photographing a silver fountain firework taken on Bonfire Night, 5 November, and freezing cold.  

Lyssa Medana


Here is the quote

I don’t know what it is used for, though I daresay it would take some rubbing to get it out of the carpet
- Bill Bryson, Mother Tongue, footnote Chapter 10

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.
