When I was a young girl (Younger than 10), I found an old, rusted key buried in my garden. It excited me because I used to repeatedly watch The Secret Garden and I used to imagine that this key was for my own secret garden. It is the only physical object I have carried with me into adulthood. I do not know why; I have an attachment to it now.
The key is quite big in size. I will insert a picture of it in my hand for scale:
I have always wondered where it came from and over two decades, I have imagined up a lot of stories for where or what the key unlocks. This key, funnily enough, quite literally may be the key to my creativity.
The last challenge went exceptionally well and I thank each one of you who participated. There was an abundance of stunning stories and poems. I honestly did not expect the challenge to take off the way it did.
And so, I challenge you, again. If you are willing, I present to you ‘The Key Challenge’. I want to hear your version of where this key leads to. What mysteries will your key uncover?
Again, there are no rules or time limit, it is your story and you tell it however you want to. Be it a short story, a poem, you could even draw a scene or make a song if you prefer. Just like last time, please tag me in your post so I can check it out. Or, as some of you did, add it to the comments section.
I will be participating in this one myself. (I’m currently just over 200 words in!)
I cannot wait to see what you come up with this time. Having my little rusty key go on its own adventure would be a dream come true.
Until next time, let’s get creative!
