September Prompt

The rules (if you're new):
1. Write a short story inspired by this picture.
2. The story must be 1,000 words or less.
3. I'll post them next week and throw it open to comments.

Happy writing, and I'll see you next week!

What a picture! And in front of a bank in this economy! LOL!

Once again, of course, I have no idea what I'm going to do with this one!

Jude Hardin said...

I think I have an idea...

LurkerMonkey said...

That was quick, Jude. Now I'm curious ...

This fascinated me. What a photo. Do we email you our stories - I'm going to participate. Frankly, I spent the better part of the day writing it - I just couldn't get the story out of my head so it had to go onto the monitor!

Amy,

Woo hoo! Yes, email your story to me when it's done. My email is jvzile@aol.com. Include also whatever name you want me to post it under (pseudonyms are fine). I'll start posting next week as I get enough stories to achieve critical mass.

Great Jon. Since I was possessed by the image yesterday, I've emailed my story. Can't wait to read the others!!

Erica,

Et tu, Orloff? It seems everyone but me had some instant inspiration with this prompt ...

Natasha Fondren said...

I have no idea, either. I have it lined up in the mental queue behind finish Project 1 and Project 2. I wish I didn't have such a one-track mind, but if I can pull off a couple mega-writing days, I really want to participate this month. When's the latest we can turn it in, again?

LurkerMonkey said...

Natasha,

I'll start posting on Monday and post one a day until I run out. So far, I've got two, so if you have yours by Wednesday, it'll guaranteed go up.

Melanie Avila said...

Ooh! Does this mean I can still play? I'll try to write it this weekend and get it to you asap.

LurkerMonkey said...

Melanie,

You're in!

Kath Calarco said...

Jon, what's the cut-off date? I'm a bit choked for time.

LurkerMonkey said...

Hi, Kath! You can send by Wednesday and I have enough to post until then ...
