Please find below this week’s picture and quote prompts.
The prompt will appear at high noon on Thursday and close high noon Wednesday. (This will be Australian time)
So here’s the rules if you wish to participate –
1 Completed piece must be in multiples of 50 words – maximum of 250 words. Anything is acceptable – poetry, story, anecdote.
2 There will be a photo and a random phrase that I will take from the current book I am reading – you can use either or both
3 Please pingback and tag 50 word Thursday, so I can do a summary on the Thursday morning. You can either put your piece in the comments on this post or do a post of your own.
Love to have you participate and here is this week’s photo and phrase prompt.
John Connolly – Night Music. Nocturnes Volume 2
Here’s my attempt for the week:
He had been dawdling along, his mind consumed with his latest book, when he had realized two things. The sky had grown darker and the English countryside was gone.
He stilled, taking his surroundings in, noticing that the houses were the colours of rainbows. A silly smile twisted his lips, he had lived his life once removed from the world around him, and now he was paying the price in madness.
He sighed; well it could be worse, no dragons watching from the parapets.
He didn’t see the werewolf peering around the corner of the building, licking its lips hungrily.
Thanks to everyone who participated last week, there was quite a versatile response.
