  1. What a great inspiration! Definitely got my own wires sparked with a potential story. I was curious, though, if there are any guidelines for word count, or is it open-ended?

    • There isn’t any guidelines for a word count at this point. Obviously, if you’ve got a novel in mind – that might be a touch too big.
      Well, at least for this contest!
      But other than that – just go wild.

  2. “Go wild”? Well, okay, I just did! I’ve got a thousand-word short story that just finished itself today, and while I interpreted what I saw in the picture rather broadly, and according to my tastes, I think I have something kinda neat to send you. Once I can sleep on it and proofread, of course. +) Thanks for the inspiration! I haven’t done very much creative writing this year, to my shame and discomfort, and I’m thankful for even a little thing like this to wake me up again to the joys of subcreation. Blogging is all fine and good, but I feel more a storyteller at heart.

    • Woot! We can’t wait to read what you’ve come up with. And of course, sleeping on it and going back for one more re-read is absolutely understandable 🙂
