Art Prompt Writing Contest.png

@tinypaleokitchen won my art contest, calling for a piece of artwork or photograph to be used as a story prompt for this contest. This is the winning photograph.

Rules

  • Using this photograph as a story prompt, write a piece of original fiction with between 500 and 1000 words.
  • Post a link to your story in the replies to this post.
  • Upvote this post. A resteem would be nice, but not compulsory.
  • The contest will end October 10th at 23:59 BST - check here for your local time-zone

The winner of my last contest was @thinknzombie who decided to award his prize, plus a little extra, toward this contest. Therefore, the winner will receive 20 SBD plus the SBD payout from this post and two runners up who will each win 5 SBD each.

These contests are just the thing to get the creative juices going.

Awesome edit of the photo! You changed the mood of it completely.

It worked a lot better than I had hoped. I messed about with it to see if I could do something and it just worked. So thank you :-)

I think it worked perfectly - a really great result and a really creative approach right out of the gate :)

Thank you for your submission

Here is my entry. I haven't wrote anything resembling a story in about 20 years, so I am a little afraid to post this. But here goes. https://steemit.com/contest/@braveheart29/art-prompt-writing-contest-4-the-pond-in-the-woods

Hello Muxxy dearest. The story I wrote for your contest lives here. Can't believe how amazing that photo is. Where on earth did you find it? :-D

Thank you for your submission.

I enjoyed the challenge. Its my first. I look forward also to writing more stories. Thank you @gmuxx for hosting this contest. Here is my entry. https://steemit.com/contest/@mrs.digitalgold/the-final-rising-art-prompt-writing-contest-4

Thank you for your submission

@michelle.gent -- Happy to have your vote. You're the writer that inspired me to make a Steemit account and start posting.

Seriously? Wow! Day made and it's not even noon!

Yes, indeed. The first thing I did when landing on the site is go to the fiction tag and you were there with many entries and an inspirational attitude.

Haha! Yeah, that's me... 'attitude, hanging around in the Fiction department' :)

Nervous sharing this as it's really the first time I've ever written anything that wasn't as school assignment and even then I was nervous what others would thing haha.

It may not be perfect or win, but I hope it's worth the read.

Thank you for your submission.

Thank you for your submission.

I have followed you too, we seem to be in the same neck of the woods ;-)

Hello. I wrote a story in which the image was used as the design for creating a world. The image is quite peaceful, and I didn't think it should be full of a lot of action. Anyway, here we go: https://steemit.com/fiction/@zycr22/the-picture-on-the-wall

Thank you for your submission.

Hey muxxy.... here's my entry. Thanks for the opportunity and also for the new digs! 😃

Good Luck everyone!

Thank you very much.

Oh boy, this one is going to be interesting. Last one was specific, it told a story by itself. This one is more vague, open to interpretation. It provides a setting for scenes to unfold, a scenery waiting to be filled in. It'll take some digging into oneself to unearth a story with this picture.

It's on.

I look forward to reading your submission.

Thank you for your submission.

Thank you for your submission.

AWESOME FREAKIN WORK IN HERE!

I was discouraged. So many stories all better than the one I was writing.

So I tore it up. Wrote this one instead. I hope it makes you laugh. I call it HIGH LARRY.
