Vaguely vegetably

Purple Pumpkin run a monthly free entry competition with a small cash prize. Even if you don't wish to enter, you may find them useful as story prompts.

Yes, I know these are artichokes but ...

1. Purple pumpkins don't exist so are tricky to photograph.
2. I wasn't sure I'd find anywhere more suitable to sneak in this picture.
3. Purple artichokes isn't alliterative and I like a bit of alliteration.

  3. Purple Pumpkins, artichokes, all the same to me. Don't eat much of either, but my wife loves pumpkin pie.

  6. Thanks for the heads up re the comp. As you say, even if you don't want to enter, you can use the themes as prompts to kick start your muse.

  7. They would work well as prompts, Patsy.

    Not sure about purple artichokes or pumpkins, but purple grapes are fine in liquid form. :D

  8. Patsy,
    I've written something for the June prompt and thought I would submit it, but when I click on your link it's coming up with a rather odd error message. The same via Google. After writing something for Little Acorns and that website subsequently disappearing I'm getting the impression that I'm somehow jinxed!

    1. Just looked and yes, that's an odd message! Will see if I can investigate ...

    2. Seems it's a temporary technical issue - hopefully it'll be back up soon.

    3. Thanks for letting me know. I'm way over the word count with the piece I've written, so I've either got to drastically cut it or reserve it for another competition and maybe write something else for this one. Ah well, it's all good writing practice.

  9. @ Everyone Else - sorry I missed replying to your comments. I was away with limited internet and forgot to go back to do it. I expect you'll forgive me eventually as you're such a nice bunch of people.
