#VSS365 = Very Short Stories 365/days/year

#VSS365 #prompt is “a daily word game designed to feed the creative muse inside all of us.” All are welcome to take part! People, who are from all over the world, from many walks of life, and of widely differing ages and levels of experience, participate. The topics are boundless. I’ll give you examples below. However, I’m also going to start featuring the work of other people, and that could include YOU! Keep reading!

You May Submit Your Work as a Guest Contributor!

 Click Here to see The Occasional Poet page plus several options in the menu items under it. 
  • You can learn about putting your poetry into PowerPoint and converting that to a video. If you don’t know how, I can teach you in classes for individuals or groups.
  • You’ll also see that I’ll be including #vss365 #prompt, Haiku poetry, and other kinds of creative writing among the areas in which I’m inviting you to apply to be a Guest Contributor.
  • The application form will be ready soon (she said on August 5th, 2021).
  • This is a business website, so the work must not include pornographic material, racist or other bigoted viewpoints, “bashing” the reputations of others, etc. Preferential selection will be given to work that is inspirational, uplifting, or philosophical, as well as to work that expresses the authentic emotions felt by people (and animals) throughout the ages as they face life’s challenges.
  • I’ll need to see samples of the work; and by submitting it, you’ll be giving me permission to publish your creation on this website.


I’ll be posting some of my quick creations as I write them on my #VSS #365 page on this website. Some are poems, some are in Haiku style; and some are prose. However, you can find all of them on my @NancyKnowsLife Twitter page, along with the rest of the items I post there.

You can participate in #vss365 #prompt challenges on Twitter, too.
Here’s the deal.

It must be Tweet size, including hashtags, and 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 to your post, you open the doors to meet writers of all genres who may see your work.

None are #illegal.

The Creator did not draw lines
And call them nations.

Ask any astronaut.

#VSS365 #prompt #Technology

July 23-2021

I don’t need #technology to fly.

All I have to do is dream myself afloat over cities.
Hands reach up as if to pull me down
to their level.

But my spirit is free and needs no devices.#vss365 #technology #FreeSpirit

#VSS365 #prompt #Technology

July 23, 2021

It was #technology that brought us back together. The one with the long hair everyone envied, the class bully, the “square” intellectual. For all the litter on FB, still, it enabled class reunions across the miles after years of absence – some of which was for the better.
