It’s the third Monday in the month!
On the third Monday in the month we put up the usual picture and quotation (see below for a change to the usual format...) but just for a change we give a 100 word limit (we still don’t count it) and you have fourteen days to have fun. This is a chance to focus in tight 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.
And instead of the quotation here is a suggestion that you listen to a piece of music and see what it suggests. Here is a link to Danse Trepak, part of the Nutcracker Suite by Tchaikovsky that I found on YouTube, posted by moltoallegro19, but feel free to find your own version of Danse Trepak and enjoy it. See what it inspires and write accordingly.
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.
