Thursday photo prompt: Wishes #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 and 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 Thursday at 10a.m. GMT, 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 will feature as many contributions as I can on the blog during the week.

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 18th July and link back to this post with a pingback to be included in the round-up.  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!

    Sue, you are a gem! I’ve been a blogger as well as an author for five years and have never tried, or even known what a pingback is. And I’m still not sure how to do it though I’ve read Hugh’s post. 🙂 So here is my blog link for approval.

    Here’s mine: It’s not the Epilogue for the Davidson Children’s saga, but it’s based in that world. However, at the end of this story in the Afterword, I have placed a link to that Epilogue, and don’t worry because both stories are a lot shorter than my usual chapters. Enjoy.

    Once again, I’m much too late:

    Family trees carry
    ties genetic, good and bad,
    a fleshy roulette.
