Postcard Challenge 2012

I have joined an interesting Challenge this year! The Postcard Challenge 2012 put on by DarcyW(UK). You can read all the details here. The challenge is based on Nick Bantock's Griffin and Sabine series - where two characters of your choice write postcards back and forth to each other every week. Darcy will post a different country for us each Monday of the year!

Our first country is Austria. Here is where my A character (Melinda Blake, author of romance novels and then some) will take the lead. She discovers a photograph in one of the library books she is using for researching her latest novel. There is the address of the photographer imprinted on the back of the photo. It's a very lovely landscape that might have been taken near her home in Tuscany. She begins to daydream about what inspired him to take that particular photograph. Perhaps he would like to have it back? she wonders. So...before she can think of a reason not to....she writes on the postcard in her purse and takes it up to the counter to ask if the clerk will post it for her.

 
 
And so we shall see where this will lead Melinda! I will do my best to keep up with the challenge and post here once a week with a new postcard and newest portion of the story. I do love to write fiction and it will be difficult for me to hold back!

Funnily enough, I found a photograph in a book once and it was clearly taken in Dublin! Unfortunately there was no address on the back so I wasn't able to go on an adventure like Melinda :(

Great idea and card.
