This week’s short story challenge, as we roll into another anniversary of those dramatic days of early August 1914 when the world crashed into war, is a photo I took inside Sir Peter Jackson’s amazing ‘Knights of the Sky’ exhibition at the Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre near Blenheim.
The picture is from a snow-clad diorama in which a German pilot has forced a British pilot down into a tree, then landed to meet his fallen foe. The models are life-size and incredibly detailed. I’m told they cost tens of thousands of dollars to make.
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.
