1) I chose 26 words but they are Spanish words.
2) Each of the 26 words has an English translation that starts with the same letter.
3) I searched for free-to-use-commerically photos for inspiration.
Sounds good, right? Well, I hit a few stumbling blocks. First, there is no letter W in the Spanish alphabet. Okay, I can get around that because they do use a few words that begin with W, but they are foreign words.
Next, some letters I ended up with multiple words to chose from and planned to use the photo inspirations to guide me. I made a good start using my standard photo sites, Morguefile.com and Pixabay.com. But I couldn't find something for every letter.
That was where LIFE hit me in the face...and nothing more has been done. Since then I have found a couple of other good sites to use for photo searches and next week will make my final choices. I also may use MORE than one word in each story.
UPDATE: Thanks to unsplash.com/ and gratisography.com I have all my photos. If you need good photo resource sites, check out THIS ARTICLE.
So the theme is FLASH FICTION inspired by a word and photograph, story written in 300 words or less (no minimum). Keeping my fingers crossed!!!
