A PVIM Challenge: We'z Walking on...

Anything but Sunshine.

By Proud ViM ProductionsPublished 25 days ago Updated 24 days ago 1 min read

Summer is poking its happy head around the corner and if, like PVIM you’re feeling those sunshiny vibes, Katrina and her tidal band-mates are likely to crop up on the radio and roundabout generally. Its going to get irritating after a while. Trust us. So, we thought in homage to the iconic classic feel-good tune, we'd craft a challenge around it…

Nope. We don’t want you to rewrite it. Not exactly anyway. Get your sandals on (minus the socks please) and start penning about what you're walking on. Anything, that is. Except for on sunshine. Obviously.

How to Participate:

Pick Your Wildest Walkway: Dream up the zaniest, most unexpected surface to walk on. Marshmallows? Bubble wrap? A trail of books that unfurls into a story? If you can think it, you can pen it! See, we got faith.

Keep the Energy High: Channel the lively, uplifting vibe of "Walking on Sunshine." How does this surreal trek fill your character with delight, joy. wonder, or an uncontrollable urge to boogie?

Add links to your creations in the comments below this story.

Challenge Rules:

Length: Micro-fic or poem Keep it snappy – we all got jobs and stuff, ya know! 350 words max.

Deadline to Submit:

Fabulous Prizes Await: 17th May

First Place: 20 dollars

Second: 10 dollars

Fan Fave: 5 dollars

But wait...Why Walk When You Can Bounce, Cha-cha slide, or Cartwheel? Think outside the basket and stay the heck away from those sun rays!

Just in case you got lucky and live in a cave somewhere.. and somehow managed to avoid the song...here it is. Enjoy!

    Hope I'm in time for this: https://vocal.media/fiction/walking-on-wheels Another bit of family life. Maybe a bit too literal for some tastes, but worth a try.

    I can see my daughter having some ideas for this one. She pretty much refuses to walk on the actual ground if there's any kind of alternative available!
