Crimson’s Creative Challenge #2

Fye Bridge


Welcome to my weekly challenge—open to all—just for FUN, FUN, FUN

Here’s how it works:

Every Wednesday I post a photo (this week it’s that one above.)
You respond with something CREATIVE

Here’s some suggestions:

  • An answering photo
  • A cartoon
  • A joke
  • A caption
  • An anecdote
  • A short story (flash fiction)
  • A poem
  • A newly minted proverb, adage or saying
  • An essay
  • A song—the lyrics or the performance

You have plenty of scope, and only two criteria:

  • Your creative offering is indeed yours
  • Your writing is kept to 150 words or less

To share your acts of inspired creativity simply tag it #CCC2
To view all contributions, search #CCC2 in the WP Reader

Here’s wishing you inspirational explosions. And FUN.

Details of the photo are given, if relevant, below this line

    Fye bridge is named after the Fye family, the first local family slaughtered by the Vikings upon their arrival in what became Norwich. Tradition has it their home was on the right by the bridge. At the time, there was no river crossing there, but the corpses of 49 members of the Fye family were used to create a ford. Legend has it the bones of the Fyes serve as part of the bridge’s foundation to this day.

      Wow, this is an unexpected response to the challenge. Though of course I so know your interest and expertise in all things Viking and so hate to challenge any part of your story. Though it is a little concerning because the brisge didn’t exist until late 1100s, and any bones found here probably belong to the many witches and scolds who were ‘ducked’ here. 🙂
