Welcome to the speakeasy at yeah write #87! If you’re new to our grid, here’s the scoop: this is the fiction and poetry portion of the yeah write franchise. Participants write 1000 word stories based on a photo prompt. The photo for #87 looks like this:
We’ve already got your first sentence ready for you, too. Begin your story or poem with this line:
I took a deep breath and turned the key.
Your submission can be about anything you like, so long as it makes some reference to the photo prompt and opens with this first line we’ve provided Submissions should be dated no earlier than the Sunday before the grid opens. In this case, posts will be dated December 9, 2012, or later. Our grid is open to entries until 11:59 EST, Wednesday. On Thursday, we vote for a crowd favourite. The winner gets a fancy button of triumph for their post and accolades from fellow submitters. As winner, you’ll also provide the first sentence everyone will use next week.
If you follow the instructions below and run into trouble, feel free to email me with questions, at Flood@yeahwrite.me, or leave a comment below. Can’t wait to see what you do with the prompts!
