Writer Wednesday is a weekly open call on a particular theme or subject that our community of bloggers are welcomed to participate in.
If you're a blogger that's interested in getting a handle on your craft (or even connecting with an audience!) then this is definitely the challenge for you.
How Does It Work?
Every Friday, we issue the theme or subject via a blog post that will be featured in our Friday newsletter.
To participate, simply post a blog on that theme, but tag that post with "writer wednesday" (within quotes, all lowercase) before the following Wednesday at 12PM EST.
- Round-up all the participating entries in a entry such as this.
- Feature all the participating entries in our Friday newsletter that goes directly to our over 12,000 members.
- Feature all the participating entries via our
Twitter with the popular #writerwednesday hashtag.
- Select our personal favourite that will be featured to the over 13,000 members in our
Zoomers on Facebook community.
In the latest edition of this feature, we wanted to encourage our multi-talented bloggers to share some of their wonderful photos, and of course, some words inspired by them.
Here are the entries that took us up on our
"A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words" writing challenge:
I will continue to journey down the road, a trip and a half, never looking back, except maybe to look in the rear view mirror, just to make sure everything is still back there, like old packages, grief, hate, love, sex in a bed and breakfast.
Up on a cat perch
I watch you pass by. Growling,
I jump on your head.
Don't be so crabby.
I'm not 'biting your hair', I'm
Checking you for fleas.
Suddenly Basil disappeared and was nowhere to be found,
He was not outside by the sap feeders and there was nary a sound.
The llamas giggled next to the sheep,
They had seen Basil but were not making a peep.
A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words – The Comics Edition:
It is horror and the absurd where pictures succeed and words fail. I challenge anyone to explain Salvadore Dali's The Persistence of Memory in any number of words.
