A thousand words (Gods and Monsters)

When I knew about Single Frame Stories, it was reaching to an end and I only got to participate in two of their weekly challenges: I believe and Life and Death. I don't know if there have been other similar challenges during this time, because I tend to live under a rock. So you have an idea of how much I live under a rock: Just a couple of days ago I learned who was that Ashley Madison woman that everybody was talking about. Now I know it wasn't a woman, but yes, I believed they were talking about a random celebrity in their opening posts because of the mentions to cheaters and so I didn't bother to check what was that about. It was a joke in a satirical Spanish magazine what made me realize that the topic everybody was talking about, wasn't a woman.

But I digress... As I was saying, I don't know if there have been similar challenges during this time. I know that there's one that has just born: A thousand words, brought by Skye Donardson and Billy. There's a group in Flickr, A thousand words, where we have to add our contributions. The challenge consists on (quoted from their Flickr group page):

We generate a random word, topic, or partial phrase from the ones that YOU give us, and then set you loose with it. Turn it into a picture worth a thousand words! This group is all inclusive, and welcomes people of all skill levels to participate.

The most important rules to keep in mind are (also, quoting from their Flickr group page):

  • When you submit your picture, please also go into the corresponding discussion, and put down your idea for the next challenge.
  • Topics will be open for submittals for ONE week, and entries need to be in by NOON SLT on every other Saturday.
  • Once the topic is closed, we will collect everyone's ideas, and put them in a random generator to choose the next cycle's topic, which will be posted by NOON the following Sunday on the blog, along with everyone's pictures from the prior cycle. The new topic will also be posted in the Flickr group.

I like these kind of challenges in SL. I may not participate all weeks (schedules can go crazy at times), but I'm posting all this to help spread the word. I hope that you will also participate, spread the word, and help keep these initiatives alive and kicking :-)

This week's challenge is Gods and Monsters, and this is my picture (with caption):

Often, monsters are those who we allow to raise as gods.
Too many gods turn their back to, and leave alone, those who helped them reaching the sky.

I hope to see you posting pictures there :-)
