#vss365 #prompt 11/28 – 12/4 2021

Welcome, Writers and Wannabe Writers in

Word  Challenges in Poetry or Prose!

Nancy Ayanna Wyatt, author of Presenter Guidelines

#vss365 challenges take many twists and turns.

It Can Happen To / For You!

You never know who might be appreciating your work! This was a gorgeous surprise that greeted me when I went to Twitter to see what had been posted during a difficult day. I had not met this woman who then brought me a moment of joy!


As I discovered, this woman happens to lead the new poetry challenges that I have been suggesting we join in my last two posts! Let’s highlight them again now as a thank you to Magnolia!



#Move Me Poetry has instituted a new feature in which people read one another’s poems on video and share them with credit to the author. I LOVE it! Discovered it “after the fact” though, so I’m just sharing the “handle” you can use to find them on Twitter. #MMPkickabout.

Now, Down to Business

Below, I’ve shared my #vss365 #prompt posts for this time period. Just scroll fast to This Week’s #vss365 Samples if you want to skip the following items as shown in

My Pseudo-Table of Contents for This Post!

the number 1 on orange background in Guidebook for Presenters
First, a motto for the new week.
the number 2 on a blue background for Guide for Presenters Then, an idea for you to explore that might help to expand your followers and customers. No,

  • I’m not trying to sell you products,
  • It’s not an MLM, and
  • It doesn’t involve your having to give sales pitches –

so don’t get nervous!

I’m simply sharing an idea that is easy and might help you, as it has helped me.) I’ll provide a link where you can learn more later. 

(Note: for those of you who read these weekly updates regularly, I have shortened the Pixels Part a bit, and put all the info into a separate page for artists and authors to make it easy for you to find at any time.the number 3 on an orange background for Guide for PresentersNext, I’ll explain what #vss365 is about for the new people.

At last, you will see my #vss365 responses for this time period.
Then, What?

Some day I’ll figure out how to make the jump links work to take you directly to the #vss365 responses. Again, apparently, this is not one of those days. Grrr-rrrr-rrr)

The Thought / Motto for This Week

Quote "A Poet Can Survive Anything But a Misprint." - for #vss365

“A poet can survive everything but a misprint.”

~ Oscar Wilde, from The Children of Poets.

Special Collections for Writers and Poets

Let me explain.


Nancy’s Novelty Photos on Pixels Products

I’m in the midst of adding to the special collection for writers and poets. However, I’ve created many more themes (flowers, sports, activism, children, tech, landscapes, humor, fantasy, politics, quotes, love, etc.).

You Can Do It, Too

Writers Puzzle featuring the mixed media Writers Read by Nancy Ayanna Wyatt and Sofia Livarinen

Writers Read Jigsaw Puzzle

Since I don’t have your book cover,

I’m using mine to give you some examples.

Three Hots and a Cot spiral notebook

Here is a link where you can find all the (over 500 designs and counting) on spiral notebooks available in my Collections of Nancy’s Novelty Photos on Pixels Products. This is the same kind of thing you’ll be able to do if you wish. Click Here to learn how.


To help me get into the mood for writing, I often match my notebooks with mugs and tote bags.

(So many themes from which to choose – here are a couple of holiday versions!)







Here is a link where you can find all the (over 500 designs and counting) mugs (2 sizes) available in my Nancy’s Novelty Photos on Pixels collections.

I can “lug all my writing stuff around with ease.”

Then, I put all my writing stuff into a tote bag of the same style, so I can find everything fast and get to work! If I want to include my laptop in the collection of tools, I use a “weekender” tote bag. 

I usually keep the image size and background colors consistent when I buy from a collection, but I’m changing both here to show you that you and your customers can choose from the selections of sizes and background colors offered on Pixels for each product.

Here is a link where you can find all the (over 500 designs and counting) weekender tote bags in Nancy’s Novelty Photos on Pixels.  Smaller tote bags also are available here.

I keep the pens, pencils, sticky notes, page tabs, etc. in one of the zip carry-all pouches. Here is a link where you can find all the (over 500 designs and counting) on zipping carry pouches in Nancy’s Novelty Photos on Pixels.

If I want to give items as gifts, I add a matching greeting card. Here is your link for Greeting Cards.

(Note: you can change background colors and image sizes.)

Easy Peasy

After you get a Pixels account (the free version or for $30/year), all you do is supply the image (which you own or for which you have usage rights).

Pixels handles everything else (the financial transactions, manufacturing, and shipping.) It’s a great deal!

Separate Blog  and Web Page So You Can Find Info About This Without Searching Here

I created an entire blog post for artists and authors on this subject so that I could describe it less here. Click Here to go to that educational piece about how you can do this, too. Alternatively, Click Here to see my web page for more ideas (not just for authors) and instructions about how to do this.

Below, I’ll provide a list of the many and varied products to help you decide whether to try doing this.

THE POINT of Putting Your Stuff on Pixels

emoji - I Love It

I’m sprinkling many examples while spending time and space on this now to show you that it might be both fun and worth it for YOU to do something similar with your own photos.

As of this writing and without my advertising, over 141,000 people have viewed my site! (BTW: I forget to ask people to like, comment, and follow me on my many websites! Please follow me here and there if you visit.) Again, this could work for you, too.

Globe "Follow Me!" vor #vss365

I’d love for you to buy some of my offerings – even as a “thank you” for teaching you this. However, if you participate with your own images, it could be a way in which to attract new customers to your work.

To truly class up your act with a professional theme, you also could combine the images with my presentation infographics for speakers and eventsbut that is an entirely different subject covered FAR below.)

Now, Drum Roll, Please ~ The List of Goodies

When you click on each link, you can see all of my over 500 images in each category on each item of merchandise. These items are the same items your images will go onto when you participate in Fine Arts of  America / Pixels.

More #vss365 Tips & Tricks

logo for #vss365 Tips and Tricks

  • You can write something humorous, elegant, scary, or abstruse. We don’t do porn or hatred, but, except for that, whatever you want to do will work! So, get your coffee and join us!
  • People don’t usually do this, but you may submit more than one entry per #prompt word.
  • Adding photos is not a requirement. However, I love color and images, so I usually choose to use them, unless no photo could depict what I wrote (like on esoteric and spiritual topics).
  • I don’t know about you, but I rarely have more than 5 – 10 minutes to do almost anything. Unfortunately, that includes finding the day’s prompt, thinking of a response, and finding the corresponding image I want to use, PLUS posting. Therefore, comma, as I would say, it’s okay to go back later and refine the work to make it better – particularly, if you plan to publish it. I have done that with a few of the things I post here.
  • stick figure using computer for training sessionYou don’t have to respond immediately. You have the whole day to figure out what you want to post.

Also, you can have the prompts emailed to you daily if you wish.

If you add #vss365, #prompt, and #writingcommunity, #amwriting, and/or #poetrycommunity to your post, you can meet writers of all genres who may see your work. I find them to be very supportive of one another.

In the portal places of power,

In order not to quibble

Or fathom the mystical messages

As readings that are merely rhetorical.

(BTW, if you click on the picture just below, it will take you to a whole page of details about #vss365 prompts.)

However, I also participate in some other brain-teasing word challenges that you can join as well. If I’m sharing several of my posts to those sites, like I’m doing for the #vss365 #prompts, I’ll use similar logos, like these. The writing on the coffee cup will tell you which challenge the posts used.

  • Since I am a public speaker and conduct classes and consultations, I felt the need to use infographics to announce breaks, instructions for break-out sessions, and more, so I created these inexpensive collections to benefit others, as well.
  • Most themes have several individual “slides” that can be bought separately or as a collection.
  • These can be used online or in person.
  • People who have used them came back for more! Some also asked me to customize infographics for them.
  • Here are some quick samples. As you can see, there are different themes correlated to the kind of group that is holding an event.
