Super Snap

Last weeks submissions were awesome, and we even had a few new friends drop by!

In case you missed them, here are the stories again.

“It Floated By” written by Trevor of “Trev’s Telautograph”

“The Gift” written by Billie Jo of “Out of the Woods”

“My Safe Haven” written by Yikici of “Yikici”

“Agastya” written by K2S of “A Space to be Me”

“The Day Of Judgement”  written by Mike if “Short Stories”

As you have probably guessed, something is different (besides it being Friday and not actually Sunday) with “Sunday Snap’ this week. Being that I’m really struggling with time demands right now, I’ve created Super Snap. This is a one of a kind mega photo prompt event here at the Campfire.

The rules are as follows.

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words. How about 500 words instead? Each Sunday I will find a photo to post. Your job (should you dare) is to write a story of no more than 500 words in any genre that might be inspired by that picture. Make sure that when you post it to your blog, you add a link back to this post. The following Sunday I’ll list all the stories submitted for the previous week’s challenge and add a new photo to inspire you. So have fun and good writing!

But wait! What’s that you say? Sometimes the story just can’t tell itself in just 500 words! Very true. So how about this, if the story needs more words, so be it. This is about having fun writing, reading other authors’ stories, and finding inspiration. Every once and a while we all need to colour outside the lines. Perhaps I need to amend the rules a bit!

  1. Have Fun
  2. Each Sunday I will find a photo to post. Your job (should you dare) to write a story of no more than 500 words in any genre that might be inspired by that picture.
  3. If rule 2 isn’t working for you, please refer to rule 1

Remember to link back to this post, and add the link to your story in the comments area here.

And how about some inspirational photo’s? Have a look at these! Yes, you are not seeing things. There are 3 pictures to choose from. I’ve tried to find something to inspire you in each of them.

"Hamilton Lightening Storm" by Jason C (Flickr)

"Dragon and moon" by Luis Alejandro Bernal Romero (Flickr)

What happens next is up to you. Write a story about one of them or all of them, you can decide! On June 19th I’ll post the results of this challenge!

Have fun, don’t stress, and good writing!

  1. That does sound like fun. I am going to make time to enter this one. Thanks for going to the trouble of writing the *giggle* rules (I like the refer to #1 bit). And I like having three pics to choose from.

    • Glad you like it. Above everything else this needs to be fun! Bet I know which picture you might go with! 😉
