Thursday photo prompt: Decisions #writephoto


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 17th April  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.

For visually challenged writers, the image shows an unmarked signpost, pointing in at least three directions. The signpost stands in a green landscape of fields and is surrounded by nettles.

All posts will be featured in the round-up on Thursday April 18th at 10am GMT, linking back to the original posts of contributors. Throughout the week I will feature as many of the responses here on the Daily Echo as space allows and (more or less) in the order in which they come in.

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.

Please link your post to this by creating a pingback. 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.

The invitation is still open to all writephoto regulars to come and introduce themselves on the blog as my  guest!

Have fun!

  61. I used writing prompts based on a picture to help my high school students be creative and improve writing skills. They were to do three short paragraphs: what is going on ? how did this come about ? what will happen next? Then as the class went on to other activities I’d call each one up and we would read word for word, edit and make corrections. They would then rewrite their story.
