Pegman is back! Look for info about this week’s prompt below (following my rant).
But first, a really long rant about the power of storytelling and why Pegman went MIA:
I have learned my lesson: never tempt the fiction gods.
You see, the Treasure Cay prompt on March 10th was actually where I was heading the next day. I imagined myself very clever. Little did I realize what I’d unleashed by doing this and it didn’t take long to discover your stories were happening to me!
First off, it was indeed the Worst WiFi of the World per my story on March 10th. Hence, the reason Pegman was MIA.
Thanks to James’s story Flight 19, I had a harrowing flight into the Abacos, which honestly left me a little disappointed that I didn’t find the Flight 19 guys waiting in the baggage area. I got to see J. Hardy Carroll’s Austin Moke from his Marsh Harbor and The New World. I had a brief encounter with Lavanya’s shark from her story The Man. I experienced a personal reboot a la draliman’s The Future of Love, and had a happy romantic ending of my own, per Lisarey’s Fantasy.
When they say there is power in words, I never realized what shape that power might take!
Considering all the stories that came true, it was a great relief there were no shooter-chasing-FBI-Agents per Eric’s The Background Search, and I was thankful no one with me suffered any PTSD per Kelvin’s A Spiritual Bombing. But I have to say I was bummed that Dale and Rochelle didn’t turn up, as in Rochelle’s Pilgrimage.
I would say someone should write a story about all this, but that would make it more meta than it already is.
I take this as further proof we are all part of The Matrix.
This week Pegman takes us to Yellowstone National Park in the US. You’ll find both streetview and photo spheres to inspire you. Choose any place within Yellowstone and write 150 words inspired by it. Once your piece is polished, you can share it with others at the link up below:
Have fun and do your best.
Thanks to all who share their stories on Pegman!
