Crimson’s Creative Challenge #15

Here’s my offering for Crispina Kemp’s Crimson’s Creative Challenge #15:

Sunflower Dead CCC #15

Welcome to my weekly challenge—open to all—just for FUN, FUN, FUN

Here’s how it works:

Every Wednesday I post a photo (this week it’s that one above.)
You respond with something CREATIVE

Here are some suggestions:

  • An answering photo
  • A cartoon
  • A joke
  • A caption
  • An anecdote
  • A short story (flash fiction)
  • A poem
  • A newly minted proverb, adage or saying
  • An essay
  • A song—the lyrics or the performance

You have plenty of scope and only two criteria:

  • Your creative offering is indeed yours
  • Your writing is kept to 150 words or less

If you post a link in the comments section of this post I’ll be able to find it
If you include Crimson’s Creative Challenge as a heading, WP Search will find it (theory)
If you tag it #CCC others should be able to find it by ‘Searching’ in the WP Reader (fingers crossed)

Here’s wishing you inspirational…

You’ll find the rules and some of the earlier badges on the Project 10K Page.

January has come and gone.  How did you do? Did you have a chance to write? Did important things prevent you from writing? Was it too hot or too cold for writing? Tell us all about it.

Here are our standard questions:

Do you need a little incentive for writing more regularly? Then this project is for you.

1. Did you meet your writing/editing goals?
2. Did you have fun writing?
3. Did the P10K help with motivation?
4. Anything else you want to tell us, questions you want to ask?

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #10

I learned about this challenge only a week ago. What a great idea. You get a picture and reply to it, either with another picture, or a flash fiction, a poem, comic, you name it, but it must be yours, not someone else’s. So, in response to the original here: Crimson’s Creative Challenge #10, I post my own picture. This is from last September when storm ‘Fabienne’ hit our area and broke and uprooted many trees. It was quite scary (nothing compared to people who have to suffer hurricanes though). No one in my area was injured but many trees fell, and that made me very sad.
