One Year of Crimson’s Creative Challenge

I took this photo just as Crimson’s Creative Challenge was beginning. It seemed an apt image for this celebratory post

We celebrate this week one year of Crimson’s Creative Challenge. Wee-hay! And what a year it has been.

There have been folks joined in, and folks dropped out, some have remained faithful, some we’ve never seen again. And the responses! Every genre imaginable: comedic, romantic, fantasy, folk tale, history, maritime, western and military, dystopia, gothic and sci-fi. Wow! What a lot. Some have posted photos in answer, others have posted drawings. I note none to date has posted a dance, though we have had ditties and limericks.

I’ve been straining my brain on how to celebrate this wondrous diversity.

A recap of the photos? A pick of the varied responses to the prompts? Alas, to do justice to the full fifty-two weeks amounts to a rather long post. I thought then to provide links to everyone’s contributions. But alas, that would be equally cumbersome.

And so I’ve decided just to thank everyone for making this such a successful Challenge. And here’s looking forward to another fifty-two weeks.

My special thanks to Sammi Cox for being my inspiration last year.

And my thanks to all participants (in order of appearance):

    Huge Congrats, Crispina! I haven’t taken part as often as I’d like but thank you for the mention. Your photography is truly inspirational, so I’m not surprised you have so many taking part and returning time and again. Here’s to another 52!

  11. Wow – the amount of work gone into this post is astounding. I’ve not done something like this before, but I can just look at that list and know it’s intense.

    And aww… I only did a couple, I don’t deserve to be on the list!

    • Would have been more had I gone with my first idea. But it was worth it to thank everyone… even those who have only participated the once, and that early on. It was a good refresher for me, too. And of course you deserve to be on the list; be you early or latterly come, all have contributed to its success. Without you & others, all that exists are 52 photos and me poems and tales and silliness.

    • Everyone welcome. Very relaxed, very friendly, the emphasis on fun. But because I read all the takes, I must insist on the 150 word limit. And it’s about creativity, so the work (whatever it might be) must be your own.

    So, two anniversaries in a week!
    (As you can tell, I’m playing catch-up.)
    My congratulations. You’ve kept a schedule of your own writing for years, but to manage a contribution-oriented weekly event . . . well, when do you get a vacay, girl?

    • Or might it be better asked as Do I get one? Though I can always schedule ahead, then do all the rest when I return. But no chance of one this side of publication. Sometime next summer I want to squeeze in a few days in South Norfolk… just to go somewhere different with the walks.

  15. Congratulations! Apologies that this is a little – a lot! – late. The first year’s worth of prompts have been amazing, Crispina. I have enjoyed them all, even if it has taken me a while to get to them. And the responses I have read have all been amazing. It’s such a fun challenge, this, and I’m so glad that there are more photo prompts to come – I must finish Lyr’s story! 🙂
    Congratulations again! 🙂
