This week’s mega short-story challenge

This week’s writing challenge is inspired by a photo I took of the ‘Martian tripod’ at the end of Courtenay Place, Wellington, New Zealand.

Use the photo to inspire a 150-200 word super-short story – a proper one, with beginning, middle, end and punchline (all super-short stories gotta have a punchline) – and post it on your blog, with the prompt photo and a link back to this blog for others to pick up and join in the fun. of course the story can be about anything.

The ‘tripod’ is actually a sculpture of a camera, made by Weta Workshop – and it stands across the road from the Embassy Theatre, where Sir Peter Jackson premiered a couple of his The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit movies.
