This week’s short story challenge is a photo I took of the breakwater harbour in Napier, 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.
In January 1945, the German submarine U-862 under Korvettenkapitan Heinrich Timm sailed past this harbour, looking for targets. The Wikipedia claim that the boat entered the harbour is totally bogus – it wasn’t deep enough, or big enough for a submarine to manoeuvre in.
