Each month, we post a photograph as a writing prompt. Post your 100-word story in the comments section, and we’ll choose one to feature in our next issue. To see examples, read photo stories we’ve published in the past. In the spirit of fun and fairness, please follow these guidelines: • Post only one story per photo prompt.
