And that means it's time for our weekly writers' game, wherein I post a photo to fit the theme chosen by Carmi, a photographer and journalist who blogs at Written Inc. I also give you a title and a single line of a story to match the photo. Then it's your turn. You post comments giving your own suggestions for titles and single lines from the stories you create based on the pic.
Last week was a tough one, and not too many people played along. But here's one from two weeks ago that lots of people liked. It'll give you an idea of how we do this if you're new to it.
And you don't have to be a writer to play. Max tries this nearly every week, and he's a math teacher. (Most of his ideas are really great, too.)
Okay, Carmi's theme this week is "groceries." I stretched it a little to mean "something you can buy in a grocery store." Or at least "something you could buy in a grocery store 30 years ago."
Here's the photo:
My single line of a story: Jimmy grasped the candy tightly in his hand; the Pop Rocks tasted normal, but the package didn't look quite right to him.
Your turn! See if you can come up with a title and a story line to match the photo.
