It’s New Zealand’s national memorial day next week – and a century ago the New Zealand Division was fighting in Flanders. This week’s writing challenge revolves around a photo I took of the aid post at Essex Farm, Flanders, where John McRae penned his immortal poem In Flanders’ Fields in 1915.
It was a moving experience to visit the place – to actually be where those amazing verses were written.
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.
