We would like to invite our readers to participate in a competition to write a six-word story based on the photograph above. Please put your submission in the ‘Comments’ section for this post. There is no entry fee, but a small prize of £10 will be sent to the winner. (No need to submit your details. We will ask for them if you’ve won.) The deadline is midnight Wednesday, 17th February 2016 and the winner will be chosen at the ninevoices meeting the following day.

To provide you with a bit of inspiration, this writer’s effort was:

“Just tell me straight.” “Not lyin’.”

No doubt you can do better.
