I'm actually late getting this out, no thanks to a severe bout of depression. :( I don't really discuss it much, as I don't think I need to lay my depression on anyone. :( This whole month actually has been a series of depressions, which all started when the State of California decreased my SSI by a further $15 in the name of budget cuts, leaving me less than $50 per month after bills. Or to put it in 5 words, I really hate being disabled. :(
That out of the way, it's time for another Writing Challenge! As with most of my Writing Challenges, calendar events they're tied to are only for my sake of posting them-- In this case, the 42nd anniversary of the Moon landing of Apollo XI, and the footsteps of Neal Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, as well as the final landing of the Space Shuttle program, as of this morning- The last American manned space mission. :(
So, without further ado, here are the three keywords:
The species this time is EAGLE (or any bird of prey), in honour of the lunar lander 42 years ago... The other two? SUN, as Apollo was the Greek god of the Sun, and... SEA, as the Eagle lander landed at the Sea of Tranquility.
So this Challenge's keywords are EAGLE, SUN and SEA.
As usual, stories can be any length, any genre, serious or funny (or both), tame or naughty-- All I ask is to just be creative with the keywords, and have fun-- And that I don't necessarily expect the obvious. :) These Challenges never expire, and you can go to one of my previous Challenges, which I've listed below, if this one's not to your liking, or just can't think of anything specific to this Challenge. I would like to know if there is a submission in the works, as it gives me hope to continue these Challenges- and right now, I could use alot of hope (especially since I'm really not worth donating to... And I do know some can't or won't, for their own reasons, though they've been supporting by other means, which I'm grateful for)...
Below is a list of past and current Challenges, with links to all submissions for each.
