Welcome to picture prompt week! This week we make pictures available and each author picks one and writes to it. The authors are limited to only 300 words on their story, too. It's a challenge! Hop from blog to blog and read each one. They are all so different, but great works by talented authors. Here are all the pictures that are being used. Thanks for stopping by!

“Your magic has always been about music.”


 “I guess you look sturdy enough.”
