Hello guys! I am PennedinWhite, and I will be heading up some fun times and prompts from here on out (with the help of MagicalJoey). We would like to jump start the group again, and with that – a bit of a challenge for August. If you aren’t all familiar with Special Holiday Fun, we are going to introduce you in the best way possible. Each month will feature a Special Holiday prompt for you guys to gain inspiration from and give us something wonderful!
ALSO! We shall be doing some weekly prompts for you as well. These are generally going to be photo or phrase prompts, and will vary in word counts to mix up the challenge. These will be posted every week, from Sunday through Saturday. Everyone who enters this challenge will get a week long feature by the group, so we hope the incentive is high enough for you guys to really participate! Let’s see what you got!!

Nothing makes your heart pound more than ROMANCE, so for August, “Romance and Romance Awareness” will be your challenge. It can be anything you like, and as long as it is 3000 words or under, we want to read what you come up with! All the monthly challenges will be mini-contests, so we expect the best and will judge them at the beginning of the next month and offer a month long feature of the winners! Let’s get writing about that exhilaration!

All these wonderful artists need your love, so we expect you to respect them and LOVE them! No pressure! They have made some beautiful work and need the praise as much as you do yourself, so if you are so inclined :+fav: and leave a pleasant comment for each awesome artist!
Each work I have presented here shows romance in a way that could prompt you to write about the topic. Whilst we do not encourage fan fiction, I have included the pictures of Elphaba, Anna and Elsa to illustrate that movies, books and television bring aspects of romance towards us and it's up to us to interpret it as we will. Sometimes we over interpret. Sometimes we miss what's right in front of us.
Write from your heart, about your heart, 3000 words or less.

Your next Weekly Challenge Prompt will be a “personification” challenge. Use one of the two given prompts below and make up a story personifying it (making it appear as a human would - thoughts, feelings, actions, looks, descriptions, characterization etc).
Your prompts:
'Mug' and 'Key'

So. No more than 500 words, come up with the best story you can! We look forward to reading! :heart:

'Mug'

and

'Key'



Let the Challenges, begin!

Contest Entry-Days of the Week as PeopleSome people called Monday the beginning of the week, but Tuesday considered the first day to be Sunday. Because Sunday was so peppy. She would throw parties, when it was her day, and invite the other days to come. And you couldn’t even call it arrogant, because if asked, she would say she was celebrating what a good job all the other days had done that week, and not the fact that it was her day. And on days that were not her day, she would ride her bicycle all around town visiting other days and other people, singing at the top of her lungs.
Tuesday always regretted when Sunday’s day was over.
Then it was Monday’s turn. For all people complained about Monday, there was a disproportionate number of guys who absolutely worshipped her. She barely even encouraged them. After all, Monday was a workaholic, getting up early and going to bed late, her clothes perfectly neat and her hair pulled back in a long, tight braid. Tuesday had visited Monday’s house once and it h

________________
“C'mon! Wake up!” Tuesday groaned as he rolled over, his straight hair mussed against the flat pillow. “C'mon! Wake up!” He reached his hand out from under the covers, long fingers with blunt-ended nails groping blindly. When the alarm sounded for the third time, he managed to find it. Smacking the tp of the alarm clock a couple of times, he grinned when the siren stopped sounding, burying his face back into the pillow.
“C'mon! Wake up!” Throwing off the covers, Tuesday glared around his room, his blurred vision causing him to see only vague shapes. Fumbling for his glasses, he fiddled with them for several moments amidst shrill giggling. When he finally got them on, he snarled at the short, frizzy-haired redhead staring up at him with her bright green eyes. “C'mon! W

7 Day's In A House (Contest Entry)Sunday sat on the couch giggling at the tv show. Her long brown hair was pulled back into a bouncy ponytail, she had her feet up on the table and a bowl of popcorn in her lap. Wednesday glared at her, he had bags under his eyes and a sighed as he tried to study and not be distracted by Sunday’s show. “Can’t you watch that somewhere else?” he asked “I wanted to watch that later on when I’m not busy.”
Sunday shook her head “You're always busy, besides this is the best tv in the house.” Wednesday glared at her and grabbed the remote to turn off the tv. “HEY! “ Sunday shouted “Give it back!”
“Stop fighting you two!” Friday walked in, she was dressed to go partying in a miniskirt tube top and heels, her hair was curled and half up. “God, I hate babysitting you two” She put a earring in while she talked, “Sunday go watch tv in your room.” Sunday crossed her arms and pouted while

Days as Humans - Contest EntryDuring my daily walk I catched an interesting conversation between a few youngsters. The big problem of their lives was that how could they imagine the days of the week. I slowed a bit and started to listen them, but when they talked about us as godly, out-of-this-world creatures, I laughted so loud, that I had to imitate, I heard something funny on my phone.
We are connected to this world. We are the creations of human minds. We look like them and because we are abstractions, we change our look as they change their collective mood. It's the most powerful during our period, so called day. For example, me, Wednesday, now look like a good housewife - brown eyes, fine, light brown hair and elegant, but not fancy clothes - during her weekly shopping spree, drinking a quick coffee while - who looks at me could think - I am planing the dinner I will make today for my dear husband and lovely children. That's how we live here. Usually we can be seen this way. During the old times we all played

____________
Sweets were one of his favorite things. Not wanting to waste the rare occasions on which he allowed himself a sugary treat, Isaac made sure to savor them, letting them rest on his tongue for several moments before swallowing.
He hadn't always been so careful. When he was a child, Isaac had eaten ice cream and cake like any other kid when at parties – quickly, and without tasting it much. At the time, it hadn't seemed like a big deal. They ran around and played, and when they did get to eat the ice cream, they usually gobbled it up to keep it from melting. Then they'd run around and play some more, and he could never remember by the next day what anything had tasted like if he could even recall what exactly it was he'd eaten.

How To Make Ice Cream.How To Make Ice Cream.
Every summer ice cream begins all the same,
a custard base of planning on what to do next.
You bring your friends in one by one, the milk, cream and vanilla,
all so sweet, all so delicate in the burning sun.
You all begin to spin around in the amusement of the day,
heads are banging, throats are dry; Pale and fluffy now.
Lying down in the perfect sun hydrated once again,
who would know this summer would nearly cost you, your best friend.
Next a custard base of planning on what to do next,
the heat is slowly dying but you still meet up with friends.
One friend lost begins to get tightened in the friction,
the plans are thick and unbreakable, at least not now.
Scooping the best moments out of the bowl of memories,
but all in the end the summer stops when you begin to freeze.
Every summer ice cream begins all the same,
a custard base of planning on what to do next.
But every summer ends the same with a colder autumn and winter.

The Secret Story.Physical appearance and mental health,
these are things we seem to always hold back.
She's looking the same everyday,
but that's not what's down within.
The tutors all begin to panic at the school,
her grades are going lower than ever before.
The teacher runs out to try and talk to her,
but she's already miles in front.
She doesn't want to let them know her pain,
she suffers in more than one way.
From the punching of her father,
to her mother's fate.
Through the pain of this world,
the solo girl walks on through it all.
She wraps the pages of bandages,
around all her open wounds.
She survives.
She falls in love for the very first time,
she holds him close as they say goodnight.
But little did she know what had happened,
her fragile soul was slowly abandoned.
Through the pain of this world,
the solo girl walks on through it all.
She weeps and wipes her tears away,
she didn't want to feel this emotional pain.
She begins to run away,
disconnection from all of her feelings.
But then she st
