Weekly Writing Exercise: August 24-30, 2015
Back to a photo this week, and hopefully something a little different than the past few weeks. As always, feel free to take any element from the photo to inspire your story. You do not have to tell the story of this particular image, just be inspired by it.

Submissions or comments that don't follow the rules will be removed, no matter how awesome. Sorry. If you need to contact me to ask about the contest or comment about the photo, please tag me in a private post. Thank you!

1) All submissions must be added as a COMMENT to this post, not as new posts in this section (or anywhere else). 

2) All submissions (including your title) must be less than 600 words. In the case of a questionable word count, I will use Google Docs to verify.

3) Only include the title and text of your submission in your comment. Please don't add any questions, links, commentary, requests for feedback, etc. Stories only!

4) Your submission must be inspired by the attached photo. How you choose to do that is up to you. Feel free to be creative!

5) ANYONE CAN VOTE. Even if you don't write a story, PLEASE VOTE for your favorites! You can +1 as many entries as you like. 

6) Anyone can add their submission at any time in the contest period. However, the voting will be counted and a winner chosen on Sunday, August 30, 2015 at 2 p.m. Pacific Time.

7) Winners are chosen by +1 count. Just that simple. (Ties will be broken by sudden death cage match, or by a call for votes, whichever costs less money at the time.)

8) If you +1 your own submission, please also +1 at least one other submission.

What you win:
-Admiration and envy from your fellow writers
-A chance to practice, practice, practice
-Your submission re-posted at the conclusion of the contest and added to Featured Posts.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me directly by tagging me into a private post. If you ever come across a fun prompt idea, please tag me! I collect intriguing images and interesting text.

~600 words or less
~story or poetry
~related to the image
~no commentary allowed

Have fun! Be creative!
