Thursday photo prompt: Reaching #writephoto


Welcome to this week’s writephoto prompt. You can find all last week’s entries in the weekly round-up, which was published earlier today.

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 September 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.

**My apologies in advance if comments, acknowledgements and reblogs are erratic for a few days… we are running a workshop with The Silent Eye this weekend and internet access will be limited.

Please note that many people on WordPress are having problems with pingbacks not getting through. They do need to be approved manually before they show on the post here, but to be sure,  please also leave a comment on this post, linking back to your response to the prompt so that I know you have posted. **

For visually challenged writers, the image shows a barren landscape against the shadows of distant hills. Bare branches reach towards each other, framing the scene, while shafts of light stream through a golden window ithedark, cloudy skies.

All posts will be featured in the round-up on Thursday September 19th 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. Please be aware that I tend to schedule reblogs in advance and these spaces fill quickly so an early submission is more likely to get reblogged.

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.

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.


An invitation

As there are usually too many contributions to reblog all of them every week, and so that we can get to know their writers, I would like to invite all writephoto regulars to come and introduce themselves on the blog as my guest! ‘Regulars’ does not mean you have to take part every week… Click here for details

    Talk about, serendipity, I had my head down starting to think about what to write and this track “Break in the clouds” by Frightened Rabbit was on the random YouTube playlist. Perfect lyrics: . RIP Scott Hutchison, a true poet.
