A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

We all have heard this saying and we all have come across pictures that evoked all kinds of reactions in us.

In this contest, we are presenting a photo or picture to you and are asking you to write about it.

Here is what is acceptable for the purpose of this contest.

  • Describe what you see
  • Describe what you feel
  • Write a story or poem about what you think is going

Of course, we expect original work.

If the story that pours out of you after seeing the visual prompt is not obviously connected to the photo, please include a short paragraph how the prompt led you to the story.


Write as much or as little to say what you want to say. You are invited to craft a longer story but we don't want to ask for a certain wordcount.


For now, this is going to be a reward for participation contest.

Each participant will receive two HBI unit - hopefully more later if our earnings go up.

Looking for volunteer judges.

Looking for sponsors of the contest.

If you are interested leave a comment or message Marianne on Discord mariannewest#6102

Submit photos, images of drawings, paintings, or sculptures you think will make a good prompt to Marianne via Discord.

Now, on to the good stuff

Thanks for this opportunity @mariannewest- My memories and imaginations

Hi! Thought that I should give this a shot! 😁 Here's my entry 😊

Aquí estoy, espero no sea un problema una participación netamente en español

It is really sad...


Hi, guys! I've been away from the platform for so long and if there's one thing that could make me get back into day to day blogging I know it's this! I've been working up the courage to take one of @mariannewest's prompts and run with it, but I don't think I'm ready yet... feeling too rusty.
Anyway, here's what I could manage for this contest https://hive.blog/freewrite/@ladyrebecca/firewood-freewrite


but freewriting is the best way to get back in the flow - no expectations :)

I've got a super wet and soaking dog that I'm going to be riding about today so as much as I love him this behavior of him going and jumping in the river is absolutely killing me
