The Keys & Future Moths

This week's Mid Week Flash (188) is up and had this photo of two beautiful ornate keys. As ever not sure where my story came from but it came anyway - check it out here. And if you want to read others, or have a go yourself, then take yourself over to Miranda's website.


Now I just need to get on and finish the story I started from last week's prompt (below). Maybe later…


Horses and Poems

Well it's Thursday which means that a new photo prompt for Miranda's Mid Week Flash has gone up. It's the lovely image below. Click on the photo to check it out… Haven't got to it myself yet, but I definitely will do. I've done the last four consecutive weeks for the first time in a long time (Weeks 182-185).

Mid Week Flash Prompt, Week 186

I eventually wrote one for last week - on Sunday. I found it a tough one to write for again. I can't put my finger on why. Needless to say I ended up writing too much… and have only just edited it to get it down to the maximum of 750 words. It's called '
Recycling: New Gods and Old Ways': click here to check it out. Hope to get this week's up quicker this time. Love that photo of the Milky Way!

Mid Week Flash Prompt, Week 185

There was no
#ReadMeSpeakMe this week. So I'm actually considering reading one of my poems out to fill the gap. Haven't written poetry for a long while so it'll be an oldie, but not necessarily a goldie. May do one from the tiny section on here, then again I may surprise you (and me). Anyways, watch this space.

Mid Week Flash - Week 183

For the second successive week I've written a wee story for Miranda's Mid Week Flash challenge. I found it difficult this time as the photo didn't scream a story to me this time. But at the end of the day any prompt should be able to get you somewhere really. My story is 'A Washed Up Memory' and you can read it here.

Mid Week Flash - Week 183. Photo Prompt.

Where would this photo take you? If you have an idea why not get creative and write it down. Go and look at the website at purplequeennl.blogspot.com to find this week's photo. And if it really doesn't get you this time then maybe it will next time.


Mid Week Flash

I wrote a quick story today for Miranda's 'Mid Week Flash' (Week 182). I can thoroughly recommend this weekly challenge. It has flexibility with a whole week to dip in and do it. And with no minimum word count and a maximum of 750 words there is a lot of flexibility. Just set yourself a target of 100 or 200 words if the photo doesn't take you that far, or if you're short of time. No hassle. Go for it.

The photos are always interesting and sometimes they are stunning, like this week's one (above) from beside a glacier in Iceland and made even more lovely by a fantastic sunset. Photo credit: Lurie Belegurschi.

My story this week is called 'The Last Enchilada' (750 words) . Check it out here.
