Republish: Right2Write Prompt 10: Bacchus and Midas

Note: No good responses last week. Therefore, I am extending the prompt for another week. If you are interested, write anything and add your link in the widget below.

Hello,

This week, we are going mythical. Yes, we are going to enjoy the world of Greek mythology. I present to you an oil painting by Nicolas Poussin, named Bacchus and Midas. You all must be aware of these two names. Bacchus(Roman name of Dionysus) was the God of Wine and son of Zeus/Jupiter and Midas has a very famous tale attached to him- the king who could turn anything to gold by his touch. Though there are three references of King Midas in Greek mythology, the one with the gold touch is the most popular.

Bacchus and Midas by Nicolas Poussin

This painting was completed in 1630 and presently finds its abode at Alte Pinakothek, Munich, Germany. You can write anything, inspired from this painting. The thing most concrete to me is the intoxication, which would make an interesting write.

General guidelines:

1. Write a short story/poem/any other form of creative writing, getting inspiration from this classic piece of art.

2. Once you have posted your creation, kindly submit your links in the linking widget below. In case you are not able to do so, please leave your links in your comments. Also if you do not hold a blog, you can e-mail your creations to me at hamusesanewtune@gmail.com or post your creation in the comments section below. Anyhow, I will further publish it on this blog by your name.

3. We need more participants. So, please write something even if it is just two lines. I’d love to read anything you come up with. Inform other bloggers about the prompt. They might be interested in participating as well.

4. It is not necessary for you to use the title of the prompt (which is based on the name of the painting) in your creations.

Happy writing!

Right2Write Prompt 9: Stop Terrorism

Last week, we had some really great submissions, inspired by the painting, The Boy in the Red Vest by Paul Cezanne. You can read them here.

I am trying to cover different forms of art for the prompts. This week, I bring forth for you a sand sculpture by Sudarshan Pattnaik. It is titled Stop Terrorism.

Sand Sculpture by Sudarshan Pattnaik

Terrorism has come to grip so many nations of the world. Many innocent people are killed because of this menace. It must come to an end. Peace is a forgotten word but it must be revived. We all are humans, made of same flesh and blood; then how can we stab that same skin and spill that same blood? How can we tolerate these murders, in the name of religion or geographical boundaries or language?

General guidelines:

1. Write a short story/poem/any other form of creative writing, inspired by the photograph of this sand sculpture. You can include the image in your blog post and you may or may not use the title of the sculpture in your creation. It totally depends on you.

2. Spread the word around. Inform others of this prompt; the more the participants, the better it would be.

3. Submit your link in the linking widget down below. If you have any difficulty in doing so, please submit your link in your comments. I will add them to the linking widget myself.

4. Do try and visit the links submitted by other writers. This way, we will get to know about each others’ views and writing skills.

Republish: Right2Write Prompt 7: Flowers and Cattle

Hey,

There were no entries for this prompt, which I posted last week. Instead of devising a new prompt, I would like to republish it in hopes that some one would get inspired by the photograph and write something, submitting it to the linking widget.

And if there would be no entries, I would be shutting down the prompt because it has no meaning without the participants. Have a good day!

I have taken permission from a fellow photography blogger who pictures the beautiful land of Arkansas. His blog is named, guess what, under the skies of Arkansas. Please give him a visit; I promise you would be enraptured by his amazing skills.

I had asked him to use a photograph named Flowers and Cattle for this week’s visual prompt and he allowed me to do so. So here is the photograph:

Certain guidelines:-

1. You have to write a poem or a short story, inspired from this photograph.

2. Please do include the photograph in your post, crediting it correctly by linking back to the photographer’s website.

3. Submit your link to the linking widget below. You can submit multiple links if you want.

4. Please try to visit the submissions of other participants. And let other bloggers know about the prompt, so that they can also participate.

Have a good time, flexing your creative muscles.

Right2Write Prompt 6: Tribute to Nation/Other Language Poetry

There were many wonderful creations submitted in response to the last week’s prompt, Broken Red. I am thankful to everyone who participated.

For this week, I am summoning everyone to submit any of their creations, be it poetry, short story or non-fiction for the prompt, as a tribute to their nation. Or in case English isn’t your mother tongue, you can convert an already existing piece by you or any other acclaimed poet/lyricist in your own language, to English and post it.

I think that is quite an interesting idea. I will look forward to your entries. Remember there is a choice between the two of them. You may submit multiple links, writing both of them as well. In simple words, start writing now…

General Guidelines:-

1. Write and submit the links to your creation in the linking widget below.

2. Try to visit other writers who submit their links for the prompt. In this way, you will get to share your work and receive feedback as well.

3. Tell others of this prompt. Everyone is invited to participate.
