One year anniversary of What do you see- What I saw

After one whole year of running this prompt, I wanted to share some of my observations;

The amazing versatility of human imagination never fails to amaze and astound me.

No matter how ordinary or extraordinary the prompt image is, nearly all the submissions are different in how the viewer is looking at them.

When the writer writes about the prompt, they put little bits of who they are in their poems, stories, and posts.

The community in our part of the blogosphere is amazingly kind and generous. They make time to respond to the prompts posted by a host of bloggers, and support them with their contributions.

Writing for a prompt, be it an image or a word/ phrase takes the writer out of their safe zone and into unknown territory. It expands their imaginative muscles and increases the ability to tackle new and varied subjects and ideas.

I have selected the image on the top as the badge of my prompt post. Please look for this badge and keep on participating in “What do you see“!

With much gratitude, thank you for making the first year of WDYS a success.

  1. It’s been a great year of WDYS! Despite all that’s been going on out there, the level and quality of participation is a joy to read from week to week. We never know what to expect from your prompt and so it’s a really good challenge. Sometimes I think, Yay! I know just where to go with this! Other times, they’ll be a fair bit of head scratching going on before something emerges from my mind. But every time it’s wonderful to see what other writers have made of the prompt and to give and receive feedback.
    Many, many thanks for taking the time and trouble to host and post our contributions, Sadje! Here’s to the next year!

  3. Congratulations!! For me, these prompts have been a game changer. I was losing my creative flair, my fire. But when I started my blog and found these prompts, I wake up excited to write again! Your site has been my mainstay, and I search for you in my reader every time I need a “boost”. Thank you for all you do, Sadje 🙂
