Snapshot Prompt & July's Winner!

We have a new prompt for you this week, but first, we have a winner!

has won our first monthly blog hop contest. For the next month, he will get free advertisement in the form of a button over here at Chasing Revery as well as at Nicole's blog, The World of My Imagination. Congratulations, Randy!

Do you want to win? It's easy (well, easy-ish). Every week you write, you get another entry into the contest. For complete details, check out this post on Nicole's blog.

If you're more into visual art, we can offer you the same prize for your images. I have the details for you over here.

Now, on to the submissions from last week's prompt. It was a lovely picture that, as usual, inspired all our different views.

We're almost to this week's prompt. Here's a reminder of the rules:

1) There will be one photo, and five words - both of those elements must be a feature in the brief story you create.
2) There is also a 500 word maximum.
3) You have until the next Wednesday to create your post.
4) When you have finished your post, come back here and link up below and let me (or whoever your blog host is) know in the comments that you have done so!
5) We were going to tell you to not take this too seriously, but reconsidered it because we know full well that asking writers to write something means that they will take it seriously. So, take it seriously, but don't fret/panic/pass out/hyperventilate/lose sleep/run in fear over it.

Here is this week's photo, taken by Kristoffer Sorensen.


And here are the five words generated here:






There we go! It's all about inspiration with these prompts, so let us know what you come up with in the linky below.


  1. I won. I won. I won. Now, I'm going to Disneyland. Woohoo!

    1. Lol. I'm not sure it's that kind of contest, Randy, but send us a postcard if you make it. ;)

    2. Shame on me. I forgot to say thank you.

      Thank you. : )

    3. You're very welcome. :)

      (Of course, it really was the random list generator that picked you, but I did press the button to make it go.)

  2. Well done to Randy!
    Just found your blog through Nicole's site and am a proud new follower - I have taken part in one of these writing prompts before and they are fabulous ... will hopefully get a chance to contribute this week!

    Happy wednesday!

    1. Thank you. I enjoy reading everyone's stories so I'm glad you can join us. Thanks for the follow, too. :)

  3. Hi Carrie! I like these picture prompts you do with Nicole. It has helped get my writing juices rolling. Wish I could do it every week but work gets very hectic at times.

    Anyway, was just wondering if you got the link I submitted to my story because you didn't mention it in this post. Just in case you didn't, the link is here:

    1. I'm sorry I missed yours, Anne. I didn't see it in the linky. I'll get it added over here today. :)
