Thursday photo prompt – Carved #writephoto


Every Thursday at noon GMT, I publish one of my photos as a writing prompt.  If you know where the photo was taken, please keep it to yourself until the challenge is closed. I usually share something about the place during the round-up.

Throughout the week I will feature as many of the responses here on the Daily Echo as space allows. Every week, a full round-up of posts will be published linking back to the original posts of contributors.

You can find all last week’s entries in the weekly round-up. Please visit and read the stories and poems and explore the sites of their writers. I feature as many contributions as I can on the blog during the week, but given the volume of contributions that will seldom  be all of them!

The best way to ensure your post is featured is to send it well before the deadline but all posts will be included in a round up on Thursday 29th March

Use the image below as inspiration to create a post on your own blog… poetry, prose, humour… light or dark, whatever you choose, by noon (GMT)  Wednesday 28th March and link back to this post with a pingback. There is no word limit and no style requirements, except to keep it fairly family friendly.

If you are unsure of how to create a pingback, Hugh has an excellent tutorial here.

Pingbacks need to be manually approved, so either check back to make sure that the pingback has appeared or simply copy and paste your link into the comments section of this post.

 Feel free to use #writephoto logo or include the prompt photo in your post if you wish or you can replace it with one of your own to illustrate your work. Don’t forget to use the #writephoto hashtag in your title so your posts can be found.

Have fun!

    Finally got it done and yes, it’s a long one. It’s full of magic and mystery, an Elven Queen, the children realizing their growing powers, one of them captured, a creepy clown, and a sword battle with a demon. Don’t miss it:

    Sue, I have written a follow up to the post I wrote yesterday because of a comment a reader made. I have linked it to this prompt because it is an extension to what I wrote yesterday. I hope this is okay with you. Thank you – Suzanne

        Thanks Sue. And thanks for the lengthy response you wrote to Marilyn Armstrong on my blog. I am rather unwell at present and aren’t really capable of holding long intellectual discussions about the meaning and purpose of art. Thank you very much for your support and your insightful comments. I really appreciate it.
