#writephoto – The Shirkers – Michael

As punishment, they were led in chains to the boulder rock on the edge of the stream and put to work.

          Every Thursday, I post a photo from my archives as a writing prompt. Anyone who wants to join in then uses the photo as inspiration for a (family friendly) poem, story or piece of flash fiction as they choose. They post it with a link to my prompt, I share as many as I can every week and then include links to all the articles annpoems the following Thursday on my blog. It helps writers to be read by a new audience…and it is fun.
