I think I have a 75. It feels gothic in style so hopefully it will at least meet that criteria. For the 300 though, I have not even the smallest kernel of an idea. Usually there is something but all I do is stare at that pile of stones and wonder how it hasn't toppled.
We have had to remove an entry from the Chaalenge as it exceeded the 300-word allowance.
Please make sure that your check your entry's word count before you post it... and no not rely solely on your word-processor's word count function, as it isn't always accurate. (Oh, and check with us about any creative use of hyphenations you may have made: we may not always agree with you that the adding of a hyphen between two words makes it a single word as far as counting them for the Challenge goes.)
I don't normally enter 300, the quality of the entries are amazing and I'm terrified of lowering the tone. Anyway the picture made me think of Aladdin's lamp, I sat down to write about genies but instead came up with this.
