No Empty pages

The word for the August Mini-competition is EMPTY and here are a few prompts/quotes to inspire you :)

Empty nest.

Empty promises.

Glass half full – glass half empty.

Empty vessels make the most noise.

I hope they help to inspire you for the competition or anything else you want to write – no empty pages :)
