I don’t think any of us could have predicted what 2021 had in store for us.

I for one, never for a second thought I would be the host of the #writephoto challenge.

#Writephoto begin on March 3, 2016 by Sue Vincent, after hosting a wonderful little photo that inspired many to wonder what the story behind the image was. This evolved into a new photo being published every Thursday to which everyone added their own wonderful interpretations.

Almost 5 years to the day in March 2021, and after reading a few of Sue’s heartbreaking posts where she described her deteriorating health issues and ultimately informed us she would not be able to continue with the prompt, I reached out and offered to help with the prompt. Sue readily agreed and with her amazing support on the 11th March 2021, I launched my first ever #writephoto post. Sadly, Sue passed away on 29th March 2021 but not before enjoying some of your fantastic entries, and more so, knowing that the prompt she created would continue.

With heartfelt thanks to you all.

So from the bottom of my heart, a great big thank you to all of this year’s entrants.
You fill my heart with joy each week.
Your creations amaze me and you inspire me to improve my own writing.
There would be no #writephoto without you.

As always, if I have missed anyone, please do let me know.

With love,

  1. Thank you for taking that mantle over, KL. Sue would be proud of what you’ve achieved. That list up there? (BTW, thank you for including me!) That’s testament to how many folk appreciate what you’re doing!
    I know I haven’t been as active but my year has been such…
    I’ll be back, in a better 2022!
    Happy New Year, my friend!

    1. This is such a lovely comment, Ritu, thank you so much.
      I know exactly what you mean, when Sue hosted I dipped in and out depending on what life was throwing my way at the time and it was one of my big fears when I offered to continue it for Sue but despite sometimes being a little distracted I think I have mostly achieved it.
      Happy New Year to you and yours too.
      KL ❤

  2. Thank you very much for including me in the list even though I’ve been irregular. You are doing a great job, KL. Happy 2022. 🙂

    1. Of course. All entrants deserve a spot for their brilliant creations throughout the year.
      Thank you so much. KL ❤

  3. Thank you for the mention, Kaley. I remember it was tough reading Sue’s writing about her dwindling time. I’m glad you reached out to continue this and give a little more to smile about in those final moments. 💖💖

  4. Thank you, Kaley! One of my new years ‘resolutions’ is to go back to doing more of the WritePhoto challenges. The last few months I’d done less writing on prompts, for all manner of reasons, but I hope to do more in the near future, and I’m grateful that you picked up the glove to continue Sue’s legacy. If you need photo ‘donation/loans’ for the prompt, let me know and I’ll be happy to dig through mine to send them to you to use for when you need one.
    Happy and Healthy 2022, and a wave to Sue in Heaven.

    1. Oh Na’ama, that is such a kind comment (and offer), thank you so much.
      I hope you achieve all your goals. Don’t worry, when Sue hosted I dipped in and out depending on what life was throwing my way at the time. It’s not always easy getting the time needed to let those creative juices flow. Thank you for your support.
      KL ❤

  5. It’s you we have to thank, KL. I thought I should offer to host the thing, but never got around to contacting Sue, thinking it was maybe too big a commitment for me. Thank goodness you did. And you can see, I was right 😉

    Have a happy new year, and look forward to more amazing pics – and if I can help at all, just say.


    1. This is a really lovely comment, Jemima, thank you so much. I was pretty terrified of that too, when I began. I’m not gonna lie, some weeks have been harder than others depending on what is going on at home but I have loved every single minute of it. It really brings me so much joy each week seeing all your unique creations, all stemming from a single photo.
      Thank you so much and happy new year to you and yours.
      KL ❤

  6. Well K.L. just look at that list and thanks for including me. It goes to show how grateful we all are that you took on the #writephoto mantle. Sue will be so chuffed as she looks on!
    Wishing you a safe and happy 2022 to you and your family. Long live #writephoto 💜💜

  7. You are a star. If you do need some support just holler. It’s an awesome commitment and hugely appreciated but there are few who could do what you do. Thank you for including me and for doing what you do.

    1. That is so kind, Geoff. Thank you so much. Also, I just finished the Art of Spirit Capture yesterday, AMAZING, (I definitely thought Owen was up to something but the ending was lovely) hoping to get the review up this week. KL ❤
