#vss365 #FromOneLine #prompt 2/12 – 2/19 2022

Hello, #vss365 People! Let’s talk briefly about #FromOneLine first, and then I’ll share some #vss365 prompt responses with you.

#FromOneLine

As anticipated, my writers’ group and I had a blast when I led it in #FromOneLine prompt challenges last Saturday! I had twenty lines for them to use; but, of course, we didn’t get to all of them, given the time constraints of an hour meeting plus internet tech issues and a time allotment for people to share what they wrote.

The participants came up with some marvelous responses, and I urged them to go to Meghan Dargue’s #FromOneLine Twitter site to participate throughout the year and to her website where she posts a blog for our enrichment.


I’d love to lead more Zoom sessions – with you – using word prompts. We could do it as one of my Sip & Share sessions!

Sip & Share Sessions usually are for counseling, masterminding, or coaching, but we could use the forum simply to have fun with writers’ prompts. If you have a group of 2 – 5 people who are interested, let me know by emailing me at GetWellStayWell@outlook.com. Put “Let’s Prompt Write” in the subject line, so I’ll pay quick attention.


Back to #vss365 #prompts

Before I share my responses, I’m sharing these instructions for those of you who have not yet participated but might want to join in the fun.

You Can Participate on Twitter, Too.
Here’s the Deal.
  • colored pencils #vss365 #promptIt’s great fun for people of all levels of skill (from newbie to pro) to use a daily, one-word “prompt” to create a poem, short story, or commentary.
  • You just go to Twitter and search for #vss365 #prompt, and you can find the day’s word, as well as submissions from people all over the world.
  • If you choose to, you can have the daily prompt word emailed to you.
  • Using that word, create your own short story or poem.
  • It must be Tweet size, including hashtags.
  • You have the option to add a photo or GIF and additional hashtags.
  • You’re also able to comment on other people’s offerings and to follow them.
  • If you add #writingcommunity and/or #poetrycommunity to your post, you open the doors to meet writers of all genres who may see your work.

You Don’t Have to Write Perfectly to Play #vss365 #prompt Games

Clock, Watch, Time, Minute, Countdown with alarm and coffee icon

The truth is I usually have only 5 – 10 minutes to:

  • Learn what the #vss365 (or any kind of) #prompt is for the day.
  • Figure out what to say in poetry or prose that can fit into one Twitter post
  • Find a corresponding relevant image, and
  • Upload it to Twitter (since I usually type it into a Word doc first).

Some people – and you, sometimes, – might take hours to refine the craft, but lots of us don’t have that luxury daily. Play anyway and refine later if you want to publish or just perfect your work.

Teen Heroine

Unwittingly, she was thrust into the situation merely by being there and being brave as the cop dug his knee deeper into George Floyd’s neck. She and her camera affected history and awareness, but she pays with PTSD.

What About Putting Your Book Covers or Other Art Work on PixelsPixels Products?

Without giving my usual endless examples, I’ll simply remind you that, if you put photos of your book covers and/or art on Pixels, you might attract many more followers, and they also might purchase your work. Click Here, if you would like excruciating details.

Suffice it to say that, when I started posting about this in November 2021, I had 135,350 visitors to my Nancy’s Novelty Photos on my Pixels website. Today (2-19-2022) I have had over 184,000 visitors – WITHOUT ANY MARKETING EFFORT OR EXPENSE ON MY PART.  All it took was the amount of time and creative effort required to create and post my images onto Pixels.

That is an increase of well over 48K visitors in less than four months!

The visitors are people from all over the world who are viewing and potentially purchasing some of my (over 500) images in the 69 collections I’ve created, so far.

Here’s how it works. I supply the image. Pixels then puts it on whatever of their products a customer orders. I’ll give you one image and then an example of what it looks like on a coffee mug.

New in 2022!

You Now May Use Some of My Photos

FREE on Pixabay!

Choose them to enhance your #vss365 posts or other writing and marketing materials.

PLEASE DO NOT USE MY IMAGES ON PIXELS, BECAUSE I AM USING THEM THERE.

Pixabay REQUIRES, BY LAW, that you do not claim images as your own, and that those of us who use other people’s photos alter them in some discernable way. Click Here for more information about the rules.

Briefly, when we share images on Pixabay, anyone in the world may use them free of charge. Crediting the originator is not required, but is greatly appreciated, as is donating to the cause by “buying a coffee” for the artist whose photography or illustrations you are using.

Here’s the link to my page. This project is brand new in 2022! I’ll be adding many more images in the future.
