A Writer's Community



WEEK #16

I would like to give a hearty welcome to all flash fiction aficionados. Welcome to the new Flash Fiction for the Purposeful Practitioner Home Site.

Flash Fiction for the Purposeful Practitioner is a weekly writing challenge designed for both the flash fiction newbie and the more experienced writer. It is the desire of this challenge to allow writers the opportunity to clear the cobwebs from a more tedious and involved project. Becoming a part of a new and growing writer’s community might be just what the doctor ordered to rejuvenate your writing juices.

Your Photo Prompt for Week #16 – 2017


The challenge for Flash Fiction for the Purposeful Practitioner will open early Wednesday morning, April 12th.  Allow the prompt to take you anywhere you want to go! (Limit your stories to 200 words.)

This challenge is open until 11:00 pm Friday night…

Photo prompt round-up – Stones #writephoto

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

The photo for this week’s prompt was taken at St Patrick’s chapel in  Heysham. The chapel ruins and the sea were our compensation for arriving on a cold, January day when the church was closed for renovations. We had come to visit a fabulous hog back stone in the little church that is carved with fantastic creatures and ancient myths… but the ruins by the shore gave us plenty to ponder.

More wonderful entries this week. I’d like to welcome the new contributors and thank  everyone who took part. Please click on the links below to visit all the posts and leave a comment for the author! A new prompt will be published later today and I will reblog as many as I can through the week as they come in… but given the volume of entries we are getting now, that will not be all of them. All

Thursday photo prompt – Enigma #writephoto

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo


Use the image below to create a post on your own blog… poetry, prose, humour… light or dark, whatever you choose, by noon (GMT)  Wednesday 19th April and link back to this post with a pingback. Please make sure that the pingback works and if not, copy and paste your link into the comments section of this post.

Please note: I will be away from the computer for a good while this week as we head into the Silent Eye’s annual workshop weekend…inspired by the presence of the ancient stones that stand in silent mystery across our landscape. Reblogs and responses to comments will be a little errratic until I am back at the screen, but all posts will feature in the round-up.

Don’t forget to use the #writephoto hashtag in your title so your posts can be found.

You can find all last week’s entries in the round-up.

Color Your World – Piggy Pink

Tourmaline .

cyw 2017 badge

The Color your World challenge will run January through April, for 120 days, with a new Crayola color topic posting each day. Join in daily, or post at your leisure.

Enter your photos, drawings, quotes, poems, stories, anything, as long as it is inspired by the color of the day.

Since this is a daily challenge, I will not have time to compile a link list daily for participant entries, however, (1) tag your post #cyw or #coloryourworld so others can follow along in the reader, (2) share your link in the comment section of each color post and (3) sign up on the home page. When you fill out the form on the home page, a link to your blog will be added at the bottom of that post – that way other participants can find all your challenge posts.
