What do you think

Is lurking down there?

Descend – Image by KL Caley

For visually challenged writers, the image shows some stone steps spiralling down into a dark opening.

The regulars already know this bit, but for those that don’t:

  • Each Thursday at Noon GMT I will post the #writephoto prompt
  • 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 have your entries linked back to the original prompt post by the following Tuesday at Noon GMT.
  • 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.
  • Please click their links to visit the blogs of other contributors and take time to read and comment on their work.
  • 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.

If you need some more inspiration or fancy a bit of light reading, check out last weeks round-up.

I can’t wait to read your creations.

Take Care.

#WRITEPHOTO – STEPS

Afternoon Everyone,

Welcome to the weekly #writephoto prompt!

This week’s prompt is a post with a difference – our MAY guest photo!

For visually challenged writers, the image shows steps up and over a bridge, with narrow alleyways at each side of the bridge.

Eight Simple Steps

One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, and eight.

It was a habit, like a nervous tick or a form of OCD.

She counted the steps. Leaving… just eight simple steps to a new day, a new hope, a new dream.

Eight Worn Steps

One. I will not let what happened yesterday overrule today.

Two. I will embrace new opportunities.

Three. I will try to smile at everyone.

Four. Drat. I forgot my travel cup with my coffee. Forget it, I’m not going back. Four! I will not go backwards!

Five. I am in control.

Six. I feel empowered.

Seven. My life is my own.

Eight. Time to get a shimmy on!

As the sun sets she approaches her steps and begins the climb.

One. I am weary but not defeated.

Two. I tried my best.

Three. Tomorrow is a new day.

Four. I am starving… No wait. I am thankful for a roof over my head, a job to pay my bills and put food on my table.

Five. I will de-stress.

Six. I am leaving work baggage at the door.

Seven. I am thankful to see my family.

Eight. Aaah… I am so glad to be home.


Written in response to Sue Vincent’s prompt – #writephoto. You can join in this weeks image or have a gander through the many interesting posts inspired by this wonderful photo by clicking here.  

It’s been a long time since I took part in these challenges (or indeed have done any writing) and I am certainly feeling rusty but I enjoyed flexing those writing muscles and having a go.

I wish I could be as methodical following eight steps at the start and end of my day. Which steps would you add/change?
