Norfolk Island

Today Pegman takes us to the remote former penal colony Norfolk Island.  As always, feel free to use the location to inspire you in any way you wish. There’s no actual street view here, but there are photo sphere pictures as well as a great deal of archival photography.  We do ask you keep it to 150 words as a gesture of respect for your readers and the rules. It’s safe to say that every writer needs practice leaving things out anyway ;-).

Have fun and do your best.  If you have any suggestions for where to send Pegman next, feel free to drop us a line.

Mauritius

Since last week’s prompt was in a devastated part of West Virginia, we deserve a vacation. Today Pegman takes us the the lovely island of Mauritius, a gorgeous island in the Indian Ocean. As always, feel free to use the location to inspire you in any way you wish. You can use the street view or archival photography (or no photo at all).  We do ask you keep it to 150 words as a gesture of respect for your readers and the rules. It’s safe to say that every writer needs practice leaving things out anyway ;-).

Have fun and do your best.  If you have any suggestions for where to send Pegman next, feel free to drop us a line.

Littleton, West Virginia

This week Pegman returns to the Western Hemisphere to take us on a tour of Littleton, West Virginia. I can’t help but wonder if the Google facial recognition algorithm took the four blurred items on the porch to be faces. And I hope they weren’t severed human heads. Okay, getting ahead of myself–it’s not quite Halloween yet.

Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to write a story inspired by the location, with a max word count of 150 words. Feel free to wander about the location and capture your own view of Littleton for your story.

Casablanca, Morocco

First a big thank you to everyone who participated in last week’s prompt. It was great seeing familiar faces and meeting new writers. Hope this week’s location proves as inspiring.

This week Pegman wanders over to the ancient city of Casablanca, Morocco. Looks like this particular location was discovered by Google contributor Raiss Toufik.

I had trouble locating actual streetview in Casablanca, but if you visit the link and hover your Pegman over the map, you’ll find a number of photo spheres to inspire you. I even came across some of the interactive sort that allow you to tour a location.

The rules of the prompt are simple: write a story, 150 words or less. Will you be inspired by the past of a location? Some imagined current drama? Or will you take us to some dystopian futurescape? Your only limits are your imagination.
