Crimson’s Creative Challenge #9

cromer under sea


Welcome to my weekly challenge—open to all—just for FUN, FUN, FUN

Here’s how it works:

Every Wednesday I post a photo (this week it’s that one above.)
You respond with something CREATIVE

Here are some suggestions:

  • An answering photo
  • A cartoon
  • A joke
  • A caption
  • An anecdote
  • A short story (flash fiction)
  • A poem
  • A newly minted proverb, adage or saying
  • An essay
  • A song—the lyrics or the performance

You have plenty of scope, and only two criteria:

  • Your creative offering is indeed yours
  • Your writing is kept to 150 words or less

If you post a link in the comments section of this post I’ll be able to find it
If you include Crimson’s Creative Challenge as a heading, WP Search will find it (theory)
If you tag it #CCC others should be able to find it by ‘Searching’ in the WP Reader (fingers crossed)

Here’s wishing you inspirational explosions. And FUN.

Details of the photo are given, if relevant, below this line

      So I see. I’ve just read your post. Another spook-some episode for your story. Can’t wait to decide what to gove you next week.
      As to the photo … I live by the sea. It figures high in my life.

      • As always, looking forward to the next prompt 🙂
        I used to live by the sea while I was at uni. Thoroughly miss it now, which is probably why I like to write about it so much 🙂

        Straining brain. Which uni isby the sea? Brighton comes to mind. And Portsmouth (or should that be Southhampton?) Oh, Exeter, I suppose. But I’m lost when it comes to the northern unis.

      • Welsh uni. I was at Aberystwyth for three wonderful years. To be honest, it was such a beautiful place to live, it’s ruined me for almost anywhere else LOL 🙂

        Lucky you. I forewent uni to go to art school. Lots of reasons and excuses, but prime is that I wanted to read Celtic History, but I hadn’t the required languages, and at the time there weren’t many places that offered it. St David;s (is that Cardiff?), Edinburgh, and Trinity at Dublin. I would have loved to go Dublin but … art (graphic design) was an easier option.
        Yea, I can imagine that was an awful wrench. So what was your subject? I’m guessing it was some form of history. Or was it Welsh Studies?

      • St David’s…hmm, could be Lampeter. I agree Celtic History would have been amazing, as would ancient history – any history in fact, as long as it’s not too recent. However, I took neither G.C.S.E. or A Level history – the curriculum didn’t interest me at all, which made taking the subject later difficult. No my degree was in Geography – the physical, scientific kind rather than human / social geography, which has always been an obsession of mine. I love landscape evolution, natural spaces and rocks and minerals, so it worked out well. Dublin would have been a wonderful city to study in, Edinburgh too. And art school, a bohemian, then? Very cool

        Ambition, for the day I discovered the word, to live a Bohemian lifestyle. Though at the time I didn’t really understand it. But, yep, you could describe my life as that. AKA, sex, drugs and rock-n-roll. But as far as that goes, I am now in retirement. 🙂
        And physical geography; that does interest me.

      Yep, I’m fine, but thianks for your concern. I buried my head in writing, yesterday, didn’t spend so much time as usual on blogs and posts. I have a self-imposed deadline, towering like a big blank wall. I needed to devour some of that height, lighten its mass. 🙂
