  1. What’s he doing? Is Beckham a lump of wood or a person? If this is actually a grammar mistake I’m sorry, I’m off!

    1. Hi Julie. Thanks for asking! There is no grammatical mistake. I just double-checked to be sure.

      The prompt is deliberately a little vague, so writers can interpret it however they like, and create something unique. The only requirement is that they use the sentence and the picture.


      1. (Sorry, I still don’t get it. Is the cat watching someone saw David Beckham in half or is that the wrong picture? Maybe I’m just not imaginative enough)
        I’ll try.
        “The statue had been in the water for so long that the features were lost. They needed wood. If they cut it into pieces perhaps it would dry quicker and they could set it alight.
        There was nothing else left. The world was destroyed. All they had was water and a cave and, mercifully, the means to make fire.”
