Sunday Photo Fiction – March 20th 2016


Another photo from Al to challenge the writer’s pen

Sunday Photo Fiction

I do apologise for not having got round to everybody who wrote last week. There were more than normal, but I will get to them by the end of this week’s lot.

The idea of Sunday Photo Fiction is to create a story / poem or something using around about 200 words with the photo as a guide. It doesn’t have to be centre stage in the story, I have seen some where the placement is so subtle, the writer states where it is.

Once you have written and posted your story, please add the link to the little froggy below so that it is added to the collection and we can all have a read.

The main object is to have fun.
