During the second week of December, we played a little game on this blog -- a game wherein I posted a photo, and as many folks as would comment came up with the shortest of the short flash fiction for the photo: a title and one sentence that came from your "story" inspired by the photo. (You can find several examples by going through this link.)
I'd like to try that game again. But this time, let's add in the weekly theme from one of the blogs I follow. I have several cyberfriends who participate in a weekly photosharing theme hosted by the Canadian journalist who blogs as Carmi. He usually posts a new theme early in each week, but I just now realized we could play along here, give it a writer's twist, and maybe make some new friends on this blog as well by getting visitors who normally wouldn't drop by a writing blog.
(If you'd like to read more about Carmi's weekly themes, click here.)
This week's theme: After Dark
My story title to go with the photo: One Night At The Zoo
My single line from the story: "This is odd," Anne muttered after pushing through the gate. "Are those spots on the leopard actually shifting colors?"
Please play along by giving your own title and single line from your story in the comments section.
