On a Footprints Challenge

It’s challenge time!

Long-time visitors to my little corner of the world know that writing fiction isn’t my thing. With over 1,900 posts, I’ve written one fiction post. Actually two because the original post did turn into a short story challenge that involved me changing my original story.

Not that I’m changing my format in on these pages, but what the heck – let’s try it again!

1. Write a short story based on the image below in the genre of your choice.

2. The story must be 150 words or less.

3. Publish your story after I post mine (Monday, July 10th @ 12:15 am Eastern US) AND link back to the post with my story (not this post).

4. Display the image above your story

5. The story title must be Footprints in the Sand

6. Display the following image after the story.

    A fellow blogger (and one who is dear to me) has issued this challenge. Of course, I cannot but help myself and will definitely participate. How about you joining in? We have until July 10th to come up with 150 words… easy-peasy, right?

  2. Well good on you Frank! And good luck with it. I won’t join in as I am not a writer and all my spare time is spent reading blogs, composing my own posts or painting 🙂 I know you understand. But I shall most definitely be here reading the stories of those who do take part. 🙂

  3. Hi Frank!
    How are you?
    I wish I wasnt travelling right now because a challenge like this is something I would love to be a part of. However, although I cant, I will be looking forward to reading your story. Best of luck to you and all the other participants!!

  4. Although I’m strictly a short story consumer I’m anxious to see what your readers come up with. And by the way, my wife and I both liked your previous short story!

    I am going to be participating in this excellent challenge by Frank, from A Frank Angle. If you love writing, especially short stories, then this is the challenge you will certainly enjoy.


    • Resa,
      I would suggest the following. Have an intro before the story where you mention the challenge. Invite readers to read my story (link to me post) and that they can read other stories in the pingbacks in the comments. I will also be mentioning the pingbacks.


  8. You’re really stepping up with this idea. Sounds like great marching orders.
    Will paw prints work? (Already got Monday’ post poised to go before catgut up with your challenge, but will have to keep closer tabs on you.)
    Can’t wait to see what all wanders up with everyone

    • Mouse,
      I got some good publicity on this one with re-blogs … so it will be interesting to see how successful this challenge will be. Meanwhile, it would be great if you joined in … but hey … understandable if it doesn’t work out.
