Do you like reading posts written for prompts? If so, what kind?
As more than half of my blog posts are written in response to different prompts, I really love prompt posts. Mostly the prompt posts have just the prompt. Some bloggers give a background to the prompt or maybe tell us where the photo was taken.
I like reading and responding to both the visual and written prompts. Sometimes the prompt post pose a question or a situation and we have to work with it.
When you publish a piece in answer to a prompt, do you read entries by other bloggers? If so, do you read them before or after you have written your own?
I run two prompts, one is an image prompt and the other is a query. I read all the responses which are posted in answer to both the prompts.
When I respond to a prompt, either an image or a word, I like to do my writing before I read any of the responses others have written. This lets me use my thoughts and interpretation for writing my post. Later on, I would read the responses by other writers.
Sometimes more than a few writers come up with similar ideas for their posts in response to the prompt, that’s why I prefer to write mine before I read any responses.
Thank you, Tanya for these interesting questions.
