What do make of it?

Mojo posted this picture in response to a prompt, and it seems to need a story.




Maybe many stories. Perhaps your story.


If you'd like to write but don't know the rules, they are as follows:
  • Write a story of 500 words or fewer
  • Post it on your blog/site/page
  • Post a comment here with a link to your story
At the end of the month all the links will be posted here. Readers, writers, and visitors are encouraged to visit the stories before then, of course. Commenting and constructive criticism are part of the game, so if you write, please visit the other authors' pages and let them know what you think of their efforts. Heck, even if you DON'T write, go read and comment. Writers just LOVE to know what you think of them.


Happy writing!

I had a head start, so I'm posting early.

I didn't have a head start... well, wait, yes I did. Mojo gave me a tip. But I conceived of this story today, so it's my first-take reaction.

I write what comes, so I don't look at the other entries before I write.

I'm always afraid I'll be struck by the same muse as someone else.

For what it's worth...

Here's mine.

Help. I have a one hour old blog (just for this) and not a cule what to do. I created it to 'enter' here. My words are stuck in a file and I don't know how to get them to my blog to get them here or however it works. I've not read the others either.

Dave to You said...

Never mind... I think I got it. A CLUE that is. I'll give it a try. The month is young and my story's been done a day and my wife is tired of reading it so here goes.

Ok...I pulled it off. My story is on my blog and that's about it.
I'll now read all that show up here. Hope my newbieness didn't bug anybody.-dave

Welcome to the Dark Side Dave. Can't wait to see what you've done with the theme.

Doc: Sometimes peer pressure is a good thing. I for one am really glad you succumbed!

I was just thinking... I wonder what these two would say if they knew they'd gotten so famous?

Got it out, finally.

Now I see I have some reading to do. Whew.

Hey Smarmoofus... I keep trying to read your story and all I get is the title "Ruby". I'm trying to follow the 'rules' here and read and comment but I can't help but feel I'm missing out on another possible 499 words. But as far as titles go... I think it's great!
