Right2Write Prompt 5: Broken Red

Hullo,

Time for next Right2Write Prompt; but first I am glad  because all the submissions are excellent. You can view them here. Thanks everyone for a great job.

Okay, for this week’s prompt, I asked for permission from another blogger who is a photographer, so that I could use one of the photographs for the visual prompt. I would be delighted to introduce you all to the immense talent of that blogger.

This week, I present to you the photograph titled Broken Red, by Amber Africa.

Isn’t it intriguing? I found it so. Do not forget to pay a visit to the blog and I know you are definitely going to be impressed.

The general guidelines for the prompt this week:-

1. Write a short story or a poem, based on the photograph. You can include it in your blog post but please do link it back to Amber Africa.

2. It isn’t necessary for you to use the title of the photograph in your creation, but do include it along with the photograph when you add it.

3. Invite your friends and fellow bloggers to participate.

4. I request you to visit the other bloggers who have entered their links. That is a way of getting to know about each other’s style and it is also a good way to make new blogging connections.

So, write down something… anything and add your link to the linking widget below.

Happy Writing!

2nd Blog Anniversary

ann

Last night, I got a message from WordPress, informing me that it has been two years that I registered on WordPress. Wow! That is such a brilliant feeling. I remember that first night faintly; I know I wrote up my first post that day which was quite absurd, which many of my posts still are. And I updated my introduction page that day and it is the same as what you see as the first paragraph in my ‘This is me’ page. I haven’t changed it but updated it twice, depending on the situations prevailing in my life.

But I am so happy to be a part of WordPress community. These two years have just flown away like that. Sometimes it feels as if I started just yesterday, while at other times it is as if I have been blogging since forever.

The truth is this blogging domain saw the major change in my life as I lost my path and went downhill. It had seen those days when I tried to make a decision of the path I want to step on, once I had lost my original one. I have shared such posts on this blog, which you would not want to read… which I would not want to read ever again. I don’t want myself to lead to that situation again.

This blog has seen me through the times when I was estranged from life to the time when I accepted its presence and it all went bad for me… this blog has seen me through my battles and struggles against an evil, which still comes forth to dominate me from time to time… but this blog has also seen me take my writing seriously, spreading my words all around and be the person who I am today. May be I do not accept myself.. I do not like what is going on with me… but the WordPress community has always supported me.

I have had so many bloggers who had come in my life through this domain and leave it as well. I miss them for their support but I know that is wrong on my part. They did all what they could do for me. I am thankful to all of them.

Now before you get tired of my sentiments, I must say I adore you all. You all are special to me. And I hope I have been or I will be able to make my presence felt.. even a little bit of it, in your hearts.
