January 12, 2017 The Darkroom Writing Prompts 6

Welcome to the Darkroom where we open our photo album to you to help spark your creativity. Each week we offer a new photo, but the story is yours to write.

The Rules, because there are always rules:

1. The photo is here to spark your imagination. Use it as the landscape for your story, to remind you of a moment in your past, or the punch line to a joke. Use the photo as inspiration in any way you want.
2. Your submission can be fiction or nonfiction, memoir, poetry, dark or humor – your pick.
3. Please no adult content, no racial or political posts. Also, where applicable, please include a trigger warning introduction.
4. Keep your word count to 1000 or less. (Don’t worry if you go over, we won’t count.)
5. Link to your submission’s post URL in comments. If you don’t have a blog, you can add your entry to the comments below.
6. Link to this page’s URL in your post.
7. Limit one entry per person.
8. Submission deadline is Wednesday, midnight CST (Thursday, 5 a.m. GMT)

This week’s prompt:

If 1,000 words seems daunting, and you want to try your hand at something more compact, check out the 100 Word Challenge at “Thin spiral notebook.” Deadline for submissions is Tuesday, midnight CST.

    I love your photos, I really do, but I keep getting caught up in other writing and I keep missing the deadline. This photo is lovely and I can almost feel a cool breeze from it. I know deep down I’ll miss the deadline again but the picture calls so I’m linking it to a poem I did in response to a previous prompt http://lyssa-medana.blogspot.co.uk/2016/05/sea-god-calling.html

    I hope this is okay. Lyssa Mx

    btw, I may be slack at writing for your prompts but I always look out for the pictures in the Darkroom. I am in awe. Lyssa Mx
