Welcome to the new #writephoto prompt!
For five years, we did not miss a beat, and every week the stories, poems and artwork flew in to be shared here as part of the weekly photo prompt challenge.
That unbroken series of posts came to a halt when I fell seriously ill and felt that I could no longer commit to collating, reblogging and commenting on the very many posts that came in each week.
However, the prompt has been missed and many people have asked if we could start it again, but with a few small differences, in case I am not well enough to set up reblogs and round-up posts.
I can only say, well, okay, we started again last week so let’s see how it goes, for as long as we can 🙂
Each week, on a Thursday morning, I will post a photograph from my archive along with a prompt word.
Use the image and prompt as inspiration to create a post on your own blog… poetry, prose, humour… light or dark, whatever you choose, as long as it is fairly family-friendly.
Please LINK BACK to this post, by leaving the URL of your post in the comments so that I know you have posted and so that others can find your work.
Please click their links to visit the blogs of other contributors and take time to read and comment on their work.
The prompt runs from Thursday to Tuesday each week, so please submit your link by midnight (GMT) the following Tuesday (2nd Feb).
Use the #writephoto hashtag in your title so your posts can be found across social media.
There is no word limit and no style requirements, except that your post must take inspiration from the image and/or the prompt word given in the title of this post.
Feel free to use #writephoto logo or include the prompt photo in your post if you wish, or you may replace it with one of your own to illustrate your work.
Depending upon how I am feeling, I will still reblog some of the posts as they come in, though not as many as before.
I will also try to maintain a round-up post each week in which I will share a little bit about the previous week’s prompt, though this is the bit with which time and health may interfere, so please ensure you leave your link in the comments!
Regular contributors are also still welcome to come over as my guest and introduce themselves (click here for details).
Please note: As I do not share my political opinions on this blog, please do not use the challenge as a platform from which to share yours. Party political or racially offensive posts will not be reblogged and links will be deleted.
