Wednesday Writing Romp #1

Doors are such a common, everyday sight that we pass them and pass through them without giving thought to the role they play in our lives, our mythology, our fiction.

They act as barriers and gateways.

The doors to our home keep us safe from the things that go bump in the night. They keep us safe from the world. Sometimes, they keep the world safe from us.

They are entrances. And exits.

They are in-between places. Stand in the middle of a doorway and you're neither in the place you've just left nor in the place you're going.

If you haven't guessed by now, the first prompt of this challenge is:

Doors (or Doorways)

Need an image to get your words going? All right.

The maximum word count is 1,000 but you don't have to meet that. Style, form, and genre is all up to you.

Happy writing. Check back on Friday or Saturday for a Link Up post where you can submit what you've written. (The Link Up will be available until Midnight on Sunday.) For reference, the rules are also listed here.
