I drew this picture the other day, and thought it was good enough to share:
And then I had an idea:
What if I posted it, and then had all you writer’s out there write a story about it?
So I thought I would open it up to all writer’s who follow me to write a short story about it. The only limit is that it has to be short enough to comment. You can write a one- or two-paragraph story (probably with a simple plot line, and not a lot of detail); or you can write a paragraph or so that would fit into a longer story, in which you could be more wordy (and most likely need less time to think 🙂 ). Anyone interested?
Since I don’t know how to scan drawings, I just took a picture of this one with my camera. The beauty of that is that you can easily get close-ups, so I decided to share some of the details with you all:
I didn’t really like how the princess’s nose turned out, but I knew you guys deserve to see her face, since she’s the main thing in the picture! 🙂
On the other hand, I loved how her dress turned out. (Lavender is my favorite color!)
The dragon is modeled after a Halloween decoration at Menard’s. I wish I was kidding–we don’t even celebrate Halloween! I just couldn’t decide if I should make it green or red, when that black and orange blow-up dragon came to mind; which led to this.
Oh! and I made the knight’s crest purple to match the princess’s dress, but if you don’t want them to be connected, be free!
And there isn’t much of a story behind the tree–that’s up to you guys. It was inspired by The Chronicles of Narnia: The Magician’s Nephew by C.S. Lewis and The Princess and the Goblin by George MacDonald.
Well, anyone feeling inspired? No pressure, of course; and if it takes you several days to think of anything, all I can say is: it would have taken me longer–trust me!
I’ll probably post some or all of the stories I get in another post, if I get a lot of them!
