Writing Challenge – October 2018

We’re back! After a brief pause during a busy autumn season, Lockerbie Writers are back with October’s writing challenge. This one is a special one for my brother-in-law and his fiancée who are getting married this month – but that doesn’t mean that you have to go down the happy route when you write your response to this photograph! Remember, the prompt is only a starting point. Take a minute to brainstorm and see where the image takes you.

Get your pens (or keyboards) ready …

Writing Challenge – October 2018

In 100 words or less, write a story or poem inspired by this photograph.

*NOTE* We’re going back to the old system – this month you can now email, private message or comment with your responses, and we will collate our favourites into a blog post at the end of the month. Full details below the photo. We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
