February 2017 Challenge: Art's Desire

The February Challenge will have the theme "Art's Desire". Stories will be inspired by art posted in the Art Gallery at Many Paths to Tread Browse through the art posted by our talented artists and choose a piece of art to inspire your story. You may put a link to the artwork at MPTT in the prompt line of the story header, but do not post the actual art along with the story without asking permission from the artist first. If you get permission, you may certainly insert it into your story.

The February challenge stories may be entered into the queue at any time this month, and will be revealed on Monday, February 20. Please tag your story "challenge: art's desire" and "month: 2017 February". Please remember to use the following header template (also found on the community profile page), and to put the name of your story and your name in the subject line.

To request your elements, please leave a comment to this post. If you have not participated before, please leave an email address so that I can send you your prompt. Or you can email the mods at manypaths@lotrgfic.com.

I hope we'll have lots of participants for our February challenge!
