Light and Shade Challenge Friday 5th September 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.  
Here is the picture prompt.  Please credit it if you use it on your own blog.

Here is the quote

Shake well before opening
- instructions on a milkshake bottle.
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. Sue Hesters link won't work for me. :(

  2. Would it be possible to extend the weekend submissions until Monday night? I would love to participate but I run out of time. It might allow more people to participate in the weekend prompt as well.

    1. Thanks for the suggestion, I think it is a good one. I know time isn't infinite and everyone has lives. I'll have a talk with Tom and see what we come up with. Life is being a bit crazy here so we are looking carefully at the matter anyway. I hope you are still finding it fun. Lyssa M x

    2. I am. Thank you Lyssa. I appreciate your response and consideration.
