Six times a year, Writer’s Digest invites submissions to their Your Story Competition. Entries can range from 25 to 750 words, and each entry is to be written in response to a prompt provided. Winner receives publication in an upcoming Writer’s Digest issue. Entries are based on “inventiveness, creativity and—where appropriate—humor.”

This month’s prompt challenges you to write the opening sentence of a story based on a photo you can find here.

Your sentence may not exceed 25 words. You may submit your sentence through the website or email to yourstorycontest@fwmedia.com

Submission deadline is April 14, 2014.
