Writing Challenge 5

May 1st marks the beginning of National Short Story Month and time for a new writing challenge.

Were you inspired by last month’s museum piece?  The photo was taken inside a museum in the French town of Chalon-sur-Saône.  The museum, free and open to the public, contained a wide variety of objects related to the region, including the stone statue from medieval times.  So what did this statue inspire you to write?  Leave a comment.

For last month’s image, see post here.  Be sure to check the comments for a brief translation of the text which can be better viewed by clicking on the photo.

As a means to inspire continued writing, The Poisoned Martini is featuring an image on the first of each month to spur creativity.  The idea is to write a scene, a short story, a chapter, or maybe something more.  Here’s the image for May…

Happy Writing!
