Thread: The New "Literary Maneuvers" Coffee Shop

    I like this idea a lot - thanks Sue!

    Second:
    A man forgets to lock the front door of his shop.

    Suggestions:

    • A reliable old clock suddenly chimes the wrong time.
    • Instead of driving to the usual place, she thought she'd walk.
    • Something that was universally agreed upon unexpectedly turns out to harbour a small but significant difference.

    The second only makes you wonder
    The third will have you on your knee

    As the guy who has to squeeze the prompt into a tiny ad, my heartfelt plea: Please keep the prompt shorter than the story itself!

    LM-ites. I beg you to consider Steve when choosing your titles. If you choose long titles you can't expect Steve to fit a quart into a pint glass. It may come to the point you just end up with the title of the competition 'WF Literary Maneuvers Challenge' and the month. Or even 'WF LM Challenge and month'.

    I won't be suggesting a one-word title of that village in Wales with fifty-six letters (Llanfar.....goch)

    Suggest:
    Cosmic Christmas
    The Fire Tree
    The Frost Lands
    In my mouth, if there be sweetness,
    It has come from my Creator;
    If my hands are filled with beauty,
    All the beauty comes from God.
    ~ from The Kalevala (paraphrased)

    Whom have I in heaven but You?
    And earth has nothing I desire besides You.

    ~ Psalm 73:25

    Christ is risen from the dead,
    trampling on Death by death,
    And on those in the tombs,
    lavishing light.

    Oh! I'm so sorry! I'll have to come up with a way to shorten things when I make the list. Really, it completely slipped my mind. I was just trying to add some zip into the final comp.
    When the night has come
    And the land is dark
    And the moon is the only light we'll see
    I won't be afraid, no I won't be afraid
    Just as long as you stand by me.

    I think your prompts are a good idea and would generate some interesting writing, which is the aim. Anyway I'm sure Steve has the artistic nous to make whatever crazy madness we throw at him work somehow ... right, Steve?
