The image sparked some wonderful responses. All entirely different to each other. It was such a wonderful awakening of the imagination. With a little encouragement, Sue agreed to post another one and within quick succession #writephoto was born. Sue’s eye to capture the most intriguing images delighted us each Thursday presenting us the next challenge to sink our teeth into. The Thursday #Writephoto became a weekly staple to so many in our community.
With Sue’s permission, I have requested I follow on this tradition. Whilst I doubt I have even half the skill set Sue does, I hope to post something inspiring enough to get those creative minds whirling and those fingers tapping on the keyboard.
I would be honoured if for the first post, those inspired to, use the original image from Sue’s Post featured above. After all this time it is still one of my favourites and I am sure there are many, many stories it has to tell.
I intend to follow Sue’s original set-up:
> Each Thursday at noon GMT I will post the #writephoto prompt (yes I do realise todays is a little late but I wanted to get the ball rolling).
> Please have your entries linked back to the original prompt post by the following Wednesday at Noon GMT.
> I will post the previous week’s entries in a weekly round-up, which will be published each week.
> I will feature as many of the responses here on the New2Writing as time and space allows.
> Link back to this post with a pingback (Hugh has an excellent tutorial here) and/or leave a link in the comments below, to be included in the round-up.
> Use the #writephoto hashtag in your title so your posts can be found.
> 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.
> By participating in the #writephoto challenge, please be aware that your post may be featured as a reblog on this blog and I will link to your post for the round-up each week.
Sue has become such a champion of creative inspiration and all I can do is thank her for sharing her knowledge, her creativity and her passion with us all (not to mention introducing us to the joy that is Ani). I was so lucky to stumble across her blog one day, she not only encouraged me to write more but helped improve my writing too and I will always treasure that.
Any help, tips or advice from anyone also greatly appreciated.
