Challenge - Monday 12th May 2014
Welcome to Monday and the Monday Challenge
It's been an amazing second week of the Light and Shade Challenge. Tom and I have been sharing notes and we have enjoyed reading the contributions so much. I have literally laughed out loud and been close to tears. I am in awe.
If you have any feedback, suggestions or ideas please let us know. Do you think the two challenges in the week are a good idea or too much? How do you like the word count - too high, too low or just right? We started the Light and Shade Challenge because we were missing Trifecta, not because we thought we knew all the answers, so we are really grateful to get any feedback.
Anyway, are you ready to start the week? Below you will find two prompts, one a picture and one a quote. Have a look and see what story they inspire you to tell and then go for it - in 500 words or less! You can use one or both and you don't need to refer to them in your writing, just follow that spark of inspiration whether it is fact, fiction or poetry. You have until next Sunday at noon GMT so go for it. Have fun, write some stuff and then use the link underneath to let people see it.
Here is the picture prompt. Please credit if you use the picture on your own blog.

Here is the quote.
Sometimes glass glitters more than diamonds because it has more to prove.
- Terry Pratchett
It is really encouraging to have comments on your work and it can give people a real lift. Sometimes it is nice to just let someone know that their writing hit the spot. Sometimes you can give a little help with a suggestion or hint. Please comment on the other writers as much as you feel able. The rule with that is the quote from WB Yeats, 'I have spread my dreams under your feet; Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.' These posts are someone's dreams.
