Karen Turnbull has a desk job to pay the bills but she enjoys photography as a hobby.  She also loves reading and writing and recently took up swordfighting (European broadsword and shield style).
This photograph was actually taken at the annual Pumpkin Massacre held by her instructor, when all the students are invited to show up and decimate leftover pumpkins that weren't turned into Jack-O-Lanterns at Halloween.  This past year's event was quite cold and Karen snapped this shot while warming up near the bonfire.

Simply put this is a creative writing site that puts the adage, "a picture paints a thousand words" to the test. The premise is that, each month, an image will be given as a visual prompt and you will have up to one thousand words to tell the story that you are inspired to write ... using your imagination as the canvas and language as your brush.

We are open to submissions of artwork to inspire stories and stories inspired by the artwork - how very Ouroboros of us!
