Sunday Poser # 94

Welcome back to another Sunday Poser

This week my question is;

What gets your creative juices running;, Images, questions, or word prompts?

I can’t say about all the people in our corner of the blogosphere, but I love doing prompts!

I find the Q & A prompts to be the easiest and perhaps most attractive, as we all answer them differently, and reading the responses from other bloggers is always fun. Image prompts can fire up the imagination and I can go where it takes me. Some of my best-liked posts were in response to image prompts. The word prompts are sometimes challenging. One can instantly have an idea and write a post right away or it could be hours or days before one can come up with an idea. When I was doing daily prompts, I’d combine 4-5 prompts from different bloggers and compose a story or a poem. I’ll admit it was a challenging task.

So what gets your imagination running; Images, Questions or word/ phrases as prompts?

Please share your thoughts in the comments section or you can write your own post and link it to this one so that I can find it.

As usual, thanks of visiting and reading.

  1. I think because I HAVE to write for work I love the flexibility when writing for the joy of it. For this reason I think all three prompts help and maybe the combination works best. I don’t join in a lot of prompts but when I do it’s for the words and images that move me. If my soul isn’t in it it’s hard to write so I honor the space I’m in and write when so moved. Thanks for asking 😀

  2. I never know what’s going to spark my imagination. Sometimes it’s an image, sometimes it’s just a random thought, or comment from someone else. Most times my muse has a mind of its own and I must heed the demand to be its voice.

  3. Prompts and images both work well for me but the most satisfying moments are the times I come up with a storyline seemingly out of nowhere. Often I’ll get an idea while in the middle of something and I’ll quickly jot down a few notes: “This is a story about yada, yada, yada.” If I don’t do that it’s like writing with invisible ink! ✍🏻

  4. I love image prompts. I haven’t responded to a question prompt yet.
    But whenever I see your response to a question prompt, it inspires me to go for a try. And I love the way you answer it. So I’m thinking about responding to one in the future. As for word prompts, I felt it kinda hard. Like you said, Image prompts can fire up our imaginations and it’s kinda easy to deal with.

    But one-day, l”ll definitely give a try to word prompt. Cuz, I felt like giving a try to difficult things are more challenging and I love challenges😉

    1. Thanks for sharing Gal! There’s another story of prompt, a phrase; hosted by go dog go cafe every Tuesday. It’s great too. I think one should step out of the comfort zone and try new things.

  5. I enjoy all three. Q&A’s are easiest because you can usually just state your truth, except for Fibbing Friday. Sadly, I have found that the more stressed I am with physical and emotional concerns, the less creativity I have. I miss doing all the prompts I was once doing. I try to keep my feet wet though. Thanks for the question.

  6. Wonderful post Sadje. Usually for me images and questions gets my creative juices flowing since I am a fashion icon and blogging about outfits are accompanied by images that support my content , for example if I am writing about formal style I get to attach a picture of a formal wear person. Nice post here😊🙏

  7. It can be just about anything at all… it just has to strike a chord in me. Heck, once I even wrote a poem after a package of gum prompted something in me. The hard part is recognizing it and making sure you write notes on something fast before the idea is gone.
