Red Writing Hood: Candles and Iowa

Okay, so that’s not fair. The prompt is about neither candles nor Iowa. Unless you want it to be. This prompt is about being inspired in by the juxtaposition of senses. I’m giving you a photograph and a song. From there, be inspired. You have 500 words. There are no other restrictions save this: If your piece comes from a series, please strive to make it self-contained for those who might not be familiar with the storyline.

We’re experimenting a little with the link up format, too. This week the linky will open immediately and stay open until midnight Pacific on Friday, at which point the Weekend Linkup will kick off.

Don’t forget to stop by and leave some feedback for your fellow writers.

Happy writing!

    I always post photos, but never really know where they will take me. I’m a little proud of this post today.

    Lovely photo said the fellow Midwesterner. :)
