When they saw the gaps in the bridge, and the fast-flowing river beneath, their hearts sank. They looked at each other in dismay, defeated even before they began. Then the starkness of their situation jolted them back to the only reality present: they had no idea if they could or would get across, but they knew they had to try.
Now over to you!
Who are they? Where are they from? Where are they going? Will they succeed in getting to the other side? I’d love to hear your ideas! Very brief – a couple of lines would do, which could tell of something you’d like to write, something you’ve already written, or something you’ve read or seen elsewhere and would like to draw attention to.
This is Pic’n’Post, which I hope to make a regular feature of my blog. Every week I’ll post a picture which readers are invited to interpret as they wish in order to submit the outline of a story or a non fiction essay or article. For example, the bridge here could be taken literally but also figuratively – life is full of precarious bridges to cross.
I’m not sure yet how Pic’n’Post will develop. I see it as a way to connect with other bloggers, sharing ideas instead of just posting my own. So all comments are welcome, not just in response to the bridge photo, but about the idea of Pic’n’Post itself. I look forward to hearing from you!
