December Challenge

As the Code of Pirates is just a guide, so's the calendar around here. This here December Challenge, being issued mid-month (and a holiday-laden month at that), is hereby issued without the usual end-of-the-month deadline.

Perhaps we'll get back to a regular monthly flow; but we just might stay free-spirited (read: erratic). At any rate, look at the picture, write a 500-word (or less) story to go therewith, and post it by January 15.

November Speed Stories

This month's challenge was speedy since we didn't post the link until the month was half done. However, we got some great stories out of the deal:

Kay, new to this game, was the first one in. Well done and thanks for joining! A great story, and she only used half her words.

Dr. Err's entry is evocative and full of mischief. Worth the read, and certainly worth more words.

Mojo has a tale to tell that needs telling, even if he is over the limit.

Dave to You has a tale of intriguing mystery.

Tiff spins a ravenous tale.

And last so far, db grin has a far-sighted story.

Go! Read! Comment! Get out your writer's hat for December's challenge!
