Welcome to Sunday Photo Fiction! Each week I will post a new photograph, taken either by myself or donated by a member of the community. The challenge is to write a story using 200 words or less based on the prompt. When you are done, post your story and the photo prompt on your blog, giving proper credit to the photographer of course! Use the InLinkz froggy icon below to add your story to the SPF collection. While you are there, take time to read and comment on some of the other stories. I know you will not be disappointed. It’s that simple!
If you are new to the site or flash fiction, check out the ABOUT SPF page with more information about the challenge. There is also a page called TIPS FOR BEGINNERS.
For those of you who would like to donate a photograph, the PHOTO DONATION page tells you how. And if SPF is not enough to keep the creative fires burning, the FLASH FICTION LINK page lists some of the more popular flash fiction challenges.
REMEMBER, THE GOAL IS TO HAVE FUN!
Here is this week’s prompt, submitted by Anurag Bakhshi (Thanks Anurag!)
Sunday Photo Fiction is a weekly writing challenge where a photo is used as a prompt for a piece of fiction using around 200 words. The piece doesn’t have to centre around exactly what the photo is, it can be just used as a basis. For example, this week’s photo is the statue of a pilot at a Battle of Britain memorial in Capel le Ferne in the UK, but you can use it as the statue of some random passerby who did something miraculous and was immortalised in stone. Or even just as a description of something in the background
If you have the time, please read some of the other stories that have been written via the InLinkz page below. Remember though, the main thing is to have fun and enjoy what you are writing.
Every Sunday a new photo is added as a prompt to see what kind of a story the image inspires in you. You should make your story / poem etc around 200 words, but don’t worry, you won’t be sent to a Gulag or forced to watch Justin Bieber if you go over the count. The main thing is to enjoy what you write and write what you enjoy.
Please take the time to add your link to the inlinkz page so others can read your story as well.
There have been 100 Sunday Photo Fictions. Or as it started off – Alastair’s Photo Fiction. 100 photos that have spawned stories of love, life, death, murder, war, aliens, animals, birth, friendships, conspiracies and destruction. I have enjoyed reading them. The time has come for me to step back for a bit though. I am away from WordPress for a while whilst I am working on the books of Raynard the Vampire (Serial fiction using Friday Fictioneers with Jules Paige) and Daniel whom some of you have read about. The alien whose planet has been invaded by people from Earth.
I am not sure when I will back to blogging, but Joe Owens from Fiction Playground will be taking over the reigns for a while. In the meantime, here is the 100th photo prompt.
Every week on a Sunday, a new photo is used as a prompt for Flash Fiction challenge using around 200 words based on that image. Your story does not have to be exactly what the item in the photo is as long as there is at least a reference to it. You can make it anything you want, and enjoy what you write, and we will as well.
Please remember to add your piece to the list of others by clicking on the link below, and you can also add the link to your own post by clicking on the “Add to your page” link beneath it. The important thing is to have fun whilst writing.
