Pictures That Tell A Thousand Words

Sometime in October, I got an email that sounded too good to be true. It was from the creative folk at Gather.ly  who asked me to take part in the 'Pictures That Tell A Thousand Words' creative challenge. The idea was to take inspiration from a set of photographs and write a story of less than a thousand words to go with it.

I had been seeing this go around on Twitter among some bloggers, who are pretty amazing at their writing. So to even be asked was mind-boggling, because I don't consider myself a writer. I love to write, but I'm certainly not as dedicated as some of these people are, or as talented. It was a pretty fun challenge, and I enjoyed pushing myself. Nothing beats that feeling of pride when you see your work actually published, and people telling you what they thought of it.

It baffles me that people read my blog, because I started out wanting to put all my creative passions into one place and just discussing it. It never came across in my mind that people would actually click the link and take the time to read. Thank you, you lovely people!

So without further ado - here's the story I wrote.
