Welcome to this week’s writephoto prompt.
You can find all last week’s entries in the weekly round-up, which was published earlier today.
Throughout the week, I will feature as many of the responses here on the Daily Echo as time and space allows, usually in the order in which they are submitted. Please be aware that I tend to schedule reblogs in advance and these spaces fill quickly so an early submission is more likely to be reblogged.
All posts will be featured in the weekly round-up on Thursday, 23rd January at 10am GMT, linking back to the original posts of contributors.
Use the image below as inspiration to create a post on your own blog… poetry, prose, humour… light or dark, whatever you choose, as long as it is fairly family-friendly.
Submit your link by noon (GMT) Wednesday 22nd January.

Last year, I spent the majority of my time crafting short reads of poetry and writing. In addition, I had the opportunity to learn a lot more about online publishing. I also enjoyed the concise and succinct writing of others. This got me brainstorming for what to do in 2020. Where it led me to was to create this new project – The Short of It.

Some of those I’ve read don’t enjoy a large following yet but their words speak volumes. I’d like to attract and entice everyone who can create in that vein. Hopefully, the word spreads beyond just my readership. Please feel free to…

For December, I looked to the titles of songs, movies, and books for my daily writing prompts. Although I tried to provide an interesting variety of prompts, these turned out more Christmas heavy than I intended. My apologies to those of other faiths and/or traditions.
These prompts are designed to inspire you to write a poem, prose piece, piece of flash fiction, or create a piece of art in 30 minutes or less.
The only rule is that you use the book title as your piece title OR integrate all the words in the title into your piece in some way.
If you would like to have your piece considered for publication on Brave and Reckless, please email your prompt-inspired pieces to me at email@example.com.
You can also share your response pieces in the comments below the Daily Prompt.
How to write Haiku in English. And how to do a Pingback.
Remember to come back and visit the comments section during the week for your fellow poets entries!
The Guidelines are simple.
- Take the two words and write a Haiku. I use Haiku in Englishas my style, which is 5 syllables for the first line, 7 for the second, and 5 for the third, but you can use what you like. The link above has links within it to articles about how to write Haibun, Tanka, and even a new form I created called Freku. You can also do the 3/5/3 form if you like instead of the 5/7/5 that I usually use. Write, share, and have fun. For syllable help visit HowManySyllables.com. (You would be surprised at how…
