Light and Shade Challenge Monday 6th October 2014
It’s the first Monday in the month!
On the first Monday in the month we put up the usual picture and quotation but just for a change we give a 2500 word limit (we still don’t count it) and you have fourteen days to have fun. This is a chance to spread your wings a little and play a bit more. Don’t forget you don’t need to directly refer to the picture or the quotation, just go with whatever gets sparked off, and (this is really important) have fun!
Here is the picture prompt. Please credit it if you show it on your blog.

Here is the quotation.
Brass bands are all very well in their place - outdoors and several miles away.
Sir Thomas Beecham
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.
