Today’s (9/6) WANAFriday prompt comes from Rabia Abbasi Gale
A New Discovery. It could be a recently discovered great author, band, or TV show. It could be a great walking route, an out-of-the-way antique store, or a perfect reading/writing nook. It could be a writing tip or a blogging trick. Share an exciting new discovery with us!
I like blog challenges such as the A to Z Blog Challenge that runs every April. The first A to Z I joined two years ago got me into regular blogging. I enjoyed the challenge of posting once a day for a month and met many new talented bloggers. I joined the 2013 A to Z Blog Challenge and completed that, too. Blogging has become a habit, and I recently passed my 200 posts milestone.
The WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is fun, too. I enjoy coming up with my answer to the prompt, and then looking at the other creative, ingenious, talented photographers and their photo entries.
But recently I have discovered another photo challenge blog: Cee’s Photography: My Life in Photos

Cee posts a new challenge in this category every Monday. She asks four questions each week that can be answered in words or pictures.
This week’s Share Your World questions are:
- If life was ‘just a bowl of cherries’…which fruit would you rather be?
- If you could witness or physically attend any event past, present or future, what would it be?
- If you could know the answer to any question, besides “What is the meaning of life?”, what would it be?
- If you were a crayon, what color would you be?
Writing prompts tend to get a bad name in the instructional world (“let them write creatively and from their own experiences!”), but real writers know that prompts can be just the ticket to get you on to new lines of thinking and creativity. I hope you check out these photo challenges and discover how much fun they can be!

The Last Meow
Well, I don’t think I’d like a bowl of cherries. How about a bowl of kibbies? That would make me happy and help fulfill my life’s goals (eat, play, sleep).
Meow for now. =<^ ! ^>=
