I urge people to join in, comment with your paragraph of fiction to accompany the image. It doesn’t have to follow my story or reflect the same themes. It can be a poem or in a different language (provide a translation please :)). Anyone who wants to join in, is welcome. This photograph has been reblogged under Ermisenda on tumblr.
Thanks to Scriptor Obscura’s suggestion, I am urging contributors to post the URL to an image they would like to feature for next week’s Picture it & write. After posting your story or poem below paste the image web address. Depending on the amount of images we get I will make a poll in the following two-three days, or I will choose the most appropriate one from the group. Please post the appropriate credit beside the image.
It should be fun. Write away and share your desired photograph! (Remember no pornographic or explicitly violent photographs. Don’t feel like you can only post photographs from other sites, you may post your own photographs as well.) A maximum of two photographs from each contributor please.
The coins glowed. They twinkled and sparkled upon the wooden table. Fifteen gold pieces. The coins amounted to more wealth than I could earn in fifteen years. Twelve hour-long work days. Seven days a week. Could I really be blamed for wanting my share of wealth? I was starving. There was no future. The Great Depression was like a concrete blanket upon us all, smothering sparks of life. I had to feed myself. I had to survive. My fingers finally scooped up the abundant golden blossoms. They fell into my pocket. Clink. Clink. They weighed like a kilo of filthy, worm-infested manure. I walked away from the rotting brothel, and her.
