Wednesdays Visual Writing Prompt

Wednesdays Visual Writing Prompt

Challenge

Use this prompt to think outside the box, to go somewhere with your writing that you had never dared go before. See what kind of magic you can work with that brilliant mind of yours. You are a storyteller so this will be a breeze.

Maybe you could use this prompt to add a scene to the current book you are writing. Maybe you could start a short story that you can give away for free to subscribers of your blog. A picture like this can spark ideas you may never have considered.

The Rules

There aren’t really many rules, just enough to get your blog some attention and get new people interested in your writing or the current book you have to offer.

  • Write in any genre you like – poetry too
  • Tag this post in your post (share this post to your WordPress blog as a new post) so I can find you (it will ping back to this post), then I can check out your work, and promote you on my social sites. Or share your response to the writing challenge in the comments section below.
  • You have until the following Tuesday to complete this writer’s prompt, then I will be posting a new one on the following day, next Wednesday.

If you have any suggestions for future Wednesday Visual Writing Prompts, please let me know in the comments:-)

I look forward to reading your writing.

(if you post past the deadline I will do my best to read your work and share it on my social networks as time permits).

Have Fun!

Concept Covers for the Indie Drawing Winner!

For about two years I have been volunteering my graphic design services to give back to the writing community.


(I hold a drawing every other month where the winner receives a free book cover design and a book teaser)


I feel so blessed that I get to connect with so many talented people who have welcomed me so warmly, some of which I have had the opportunity to create for (Awesome)!

I have so much fun working with the winners of the drawing that I decided it was time to start sharing – so you could enjoy the process and discover their talent.

This post is all about the concept covers….

Meet K.D. Rose!

The winner for March is author and poet, K.D. Rose, and she’s just awesome! She’s a talented author and a poet. Her book, Inside Sorrow, won Readers Favorite Silver Medal for Poetry. She also won an Honorable Mention in the 2016 New Millennium Writings Poetry Contest. Her poetry, essays, and short stories have been published in numerous magazines and journals. You can check out her books through the Amazon link below!

K.D. has a fantastic blog where she keeps us all up-to-date on her poetry publications and posts some great articles you might find helpful as well as random posts about life as a writer. She’s fun to follow. You can follow her blog here, and connect with K.D. via these social links below 🙂

Bellow are the concepts I created for K.D.’s , soon to be published, book of poetry. The subtext in the blue cover concept was used as strictly a placeholder and not an approved description of her work. So, basically, it’s just meant to give a feel for what it might look like if there were to be added subtext.

Which one do you like Best?

Robert Mackey

Robert lives by the following adage: No matter how many heads have to roll in the attainment of you goals, be certain to smile and wave at them as they pass. It’s best to do your beheading on a hill with your opponent uphill from you to insure the head actually rolls and to prolong the amount of time you get to smile and wave. (Very important.)
