Each week, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields leads us all on a merry chase through a literary wonderland of our own creation. We write up to 100 words (more in a writing emergency) from a photo prompt. Anyone is welcome to join the creative coursing of characters. Original prompt may be found here: http://rochellewisofffields.wordpress.com/2013/09/11/13-september-2013/
