Sarah Salway has been giving herself the challenge of writing 50 word stories in response to everyday images over on her blog here The idea is to challenge yourself to write a 50 word story, no more, no less, in response to an image.
Yesterday I spent some time writing with teenagers and used John & Caitlín Matthews StoryWorld cards as writing triggers. Following Sarah’s invitation to participate in her 50 word challenge here is
The Enchantress – a 50 word story
“The best way the enchantress knows of disarming the dragon and the griffin and allow the lovers escape is to tell a story. They relax, become curious, let down their guard, become softer when words are woven in the air around them. The enchantress smiles. She is ready to begin.”
This is very enjoyable writing practice. Do join in …
