This Week’s Challenges: January 21 – 27 (OWPC, WW & CYW)

Week 4 is here! Check out the announcement/homepage and get your name on the participant list here:

Color your world is a 4 month long daily blogging challenge event. Each day has a new color theme based on a crayon color in Crayola’s box of 120 crayons. The challenge runs January 1, 2018 to April 30, 2018. The week’s colors will be announced via my ‘This Week’s Challenges’ posts each Sunday and you’ll have the following week to respond to those 7 colors as you choose. Post, daily, weekly, or anything in between.

Your contribution can come in any form – art, poetry, flash fiction, a tale of a miscellaneous memory – anything, the only caveat – it has to be inspired by the color of the day. You can join in every single day or simply post at your leisure.

Comment back on the weekly challenge post with a link to your contribution and tag your post #coloyyourworld and #cyw so that other participants can see what you’ve come up with. Be sure to follow #coloryourworld and #cyw in your reader as well if you’re a WordPress user.

2018 Participants:

One Word Photo Challenge: Mermaid

If you want to share a literal image of the actual word, do that. But if you’d rather play with word association, post something that reminds you of the specific word, or something you use the word for, do so. It only has to make sense to you. Have fun and keep on photographing!

    I did another blog post with a second life photo — the second life photo is after the end of the essay on Cherlita. I showed the original photo along with the texture I used to create the image for the poem and which blend modes I used — just skip to the end of the essay if you are into that kind of stuff. P.S. I’m crazy about mermaids

    thank you Tourmaline for saying that I could include my second life photos in the one word challenge. Soooo appreciated. As some people may know, half my photos are in “real life” and half are in “second life”. But all my mermaid photoshoots are in second life. SL is where I feel like I get to be a combination of Julia Margaret Cameron and Cindy Sherman, lol.
