I’ve been having a lot of fun writing stories, inspired by a simple picture. It is very challenging, and pretty rewarding too. It’s a simple concept, you visit the web site, Magpie Tales, and see what has been posted as a prompt. Then all you have to do is dream up a story, poem, or vignette to go along with the picture. Surprisingly enough, it’s not always so easy.
What I find most intriguing, is the astonishingly varied reactions people have to the same picture. I just spent the last three hours, skipping through the 40 plus entries for this week. They are creative, inspiration, sad, and so very diverse. It then becomes a challenge to create a valuable comment worth the price of admission, 40 times, each different than the last.
I found this weeks challenge educational in more ways than one.

I like pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals.
