Week Two Writing Topic | July 2015 – Month-o-Minis

The whole month of July we will be exploring small things to accommodate our tiny word count caps.
For week two your prompt is:

Doll’s Eyes

doll's eyes

I went through many dolls in my childhood. They sat on shelves, shared my pillow, and sometimes were forgotten on top of the toybox and left to stare at the ceiling all night. I had one that closed her eyes when you laid her down. She had surprisingly long eyelashes for a doll. Not soft like a person’s, the eyelashes were one stiff curve of plastic jutting from a little blue eye. I used to press my finger to the curl – open, close, open, close. Eventually, one of the eyes stopped pivoting and she lived out the rest of her days in a permanent wink. With those very adult eyelashes it’s no wonder she turned out cheeky.

In 200 words or less, tell us a tale from the doll’s eye view and submit it by 11:45 pm edt on Saturday, July 18. I flubbed the sign-up so anyone may submit a maximum of two contest entries as long as the submissions do not rely on each other to tell one story and are not continuations of one another. Poetry and other forms of written expression welcome. There are no JFF entries this month.

For those of you who are writing with us for the first time. Your entry should be posted to an online blog or journal with public reading access for the duration of the voting process (anywhere from three days to a week). Work you submit to the contest always belongs to you. It should be original work and first written for the prompt provided.

Please use the form below to submit your entry.
