Thought I would try something new for around here, something a little different from the story posting most of us do on a daily or bi-daily basis.

I will give a prompt, which will be in the form of a single word or a picture, and you guys must write what comes to mind from that word or picture. The catch is you only have 55 words to do it in. You can do it in less, but no more than 55.

Entries will be accepted for 1 week, and a poll will be posted for one week. During that polling week, another prompt will be posted to be done, and so forth.

Sound like fun? Too much work?

Ok - for those who answered "Tell me more", I have a bit of an example to share.

Say the prompt is: "IMMORTALITY"

I would write something which has something to do with it directly or indirectly.

Example:

Dull and chipped scales lacked the beauty they used to have.
  1   2        3        4       5      6     7         8     9    10  11
The broken talons and tired eyes showed his age.
  12   13       14     15   16   17    18       19  20
Gazing into those ancient eyes,
 21      22    23     24       25
there was a   depth of knowledge and wisdom from millennia of existence.
  26    27  28  29    30     31         32    33       34    35       36  37

“Nothing, even great things, lasts forever.”
    38        39    40     41       42   43

My heart ached at his words...
44   45    46     47  48  49


Ok, a bit of an explanation. This was based off the ideal that Dragons are immortal, or near immortal. Yet, I presented a contradiction to the prompt.

Using immortality as the theme, and picklng up on Kalina's contradiction theory.

The end.
