50 Word Thursday #30

Hi All,

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.


“She discovered it by accident on her fourth day at the lake.”

Mary Kay McComas’ His Brother’s Keeper

Here’s my attempt for the week:

It had been quite by accident that she had even discovered it on her fourth day at the lake, the railway platform in the middle of nowhere and upon one of the seats sat a toy train.

Repressing a shiver she backed away, this wasn’t a place for the living.

Thanks to all who participated last week.  Check them out below:
