Ok, I picked the wrong picture when I put this post up, so sorry if I inhibited your creativity but hopefully you had something to work with.
Anyway on with the results post and remember tomorrow Kristian will post the next installment of 50 Word Thursday, so be on the look out for that.
But first …
- Find the muse within the photo or line provided and follow where it leads. It can be a story, anecdote, poem. Anything!
- The Story must be between 50 and 250 words, in 50 word increments. (so 50, 100, 150, 200 or 250 words)
- Link back to this post with the tag 50WordThurs so that everyone can find it, or post your response in the comments below.
