Wednesday Writing Prompt - One Photo, Five Words, and a 500 Word Limit

Happy Wednesday Everyone!


It's midweek and you know what that means? We are three days away from the weekend! I know, I can't wait too.

So, we had an amazing turn out last week! Here are the stories we received:

Clothespin Commitment by Jack Carlson
A Child's Path and Escape by Scott Taylor
Murder at the Amusement Park (the ongoing story that inspired my own) by Tena Car
Lost by Landa
Summer of 1962 by Anne
I Love a Good Curse by Me
Perfect Not Day by Carrie K. Sorensen

It's my turn this week! And it's my favorite part of the whole week because I get to choose the photo! Yay!





First a special shout to Carrie K. Sorensen and Jane Bussey for being awesome co-hosts. Also, if you enjoy the blog hop and want to help promote it, feel free to grab a button:

writing, writers, blogs

Click and copy this code






Two more bits of news before we get into the blog hop:


1) If you are interested in being a co-host for the blog hop, let us know in the comments! It's fairly easy, just making sure you are posting the blog hop post each week!

2) Also, Carrie is starting a new blog story hop! It's a lot of fun and it's so exciting to see where the story goes according to each blogger. She has a post about it on her blog. Or contact me via Google Plus. Or email or Twitter.

So, without further ado! Here is this week's writing prompt. Real quick, here are the rules:

1) There will be one photo, and five words - both of those elements must be a feature in the brief story you create.

2) There is also a 500 word maximum.

3) You have until the next Wednesday to create your post.

4) When you have finished your post, come back here and link up below and let me (Or whoever your blog host is) know in the comments that you have done so!
5) We were going to tell you to not take this too seriously, but reconsidered it because we know full well that asking writers to write something means that they will take it seriously. So, take it seriously, but don't fret/panic/pass out/hyperventilate/lose sleep/run in fear over it.

  4. So tonight, I was passing an old dilapidated house that's been for sale for months as I read the prompt on my phone and I thought it would be fun to write a story about that house.
    I inserted the photo, included the 5 words, and then noticed the word count was 1500. Oops, I have this habit of letting the words run away when I'm not paying attention. Since I didn't follow all the rules, I thought I would post the link down here instead for those who may be interested in a longer (happy) story.

I love comments! The good, the bad, and the ugly, so tell me what you have to say! And if you like what you read (or at least find yourself entertained), follow my blog to read more. Although I'm not always able to respond to comments immediately, I appreciate every one of them.
