Thursday photo prompt: Calling #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 23rd October 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.

**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 snowstorm with the silhouette of a stag watching between two trees.

All posts will be featured in the round-up on Thursday, October 24th 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.


Come and introduce yourself!

An open invitation to writephoto contributors…

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

    The White Hart

    It was cold, bitterly cold. Devon tried to shake his head, he felt trapped. I should never have left the car. I should never have tried to drive the car. Too much alcohol, too little sense. He wondered if anyone at the party would notice that he was gone. And now his arrogance, his stupidity was going to be his fatal undoing. It was a snowstorm for God’s sake!

    Devon’s body start to shiver, violently. It was trying desperately to warm up. As his body struggled to stay alive, his mind struggled to remember. A whisper of a memory seeped to the surface. There was a tale, a story told to children about The White Hart. A magnificent beast that would save lost travelers. It would appear out of the mist, its head held high, antlers gleaming. The mere sight of it gave strength to the weary and hope to the wretched. Devon forced his eyes to open. He tried to raise his arm, he could not. With a last burst of strength he opened his mouth and . . . . belched?

    “Hon! You took all the blankets again! It’s bloody freezing! I gotta pee!

  38. I know this is called photo prompt, but I think it looks like a bit like an etching print.
