#SKYLARK CHALLENGE -
WHAT IS THE SKYLARK CHALLENGE?
A weekly writing prompt that includes 4 carefully chosen words and a photo - except on occasions when it's a special challenge, known as a #SKYLARK SPECTACULAR! - or like on our first birthday it today, when we are celebrating our 💯 th challenge! 😱 and I created a very special set of prompts - with certificates!! But this doesn't happen normally.
WHAT ARE THE RULES?
• Use ALL 4 words exactly as they are written, but in any order you wish (IF 6... WORDS ARE GIVEN, USE ALL OF 6 THEM)
• Using the photo is (NORMALLY) optional
• Write in any style, about any topic; of any length and genre.
* Use an alternative photo i...
Dear Lady Skylark - Becca🐦,
One of my earliest memories.
I was about 6 or so, maybe younger. This is back when I went to church with my grandmother. I felt like a princess all dressed in colorful ribbons and velvet. My junior bible study classes were canceled for some reason and I had to go to the adults worship area instead of my little classroom. The lights were dim and ominous music played while everyone hummed and prayed. There was one person up front guiding everyone's "meditation." But I felt like I was standing in soup. Like the room was filled with...surrender. Soupy, messy, heavy, surrender. A striving for forgiveness and understanding. Otherwise had no idea wh...
In response to Rae Pendragon's questions:
1) Is there anything you like to do the old fashioned way?
I love the idea of receiving more letters. Real letters; with inky finger splotches, tea spills and paw-prints. With the smell of stationary paper and Indian ink. Messages spelt out with beautiful script which someone took time over, ensuring it looked pretty to the eye of the recipient. Miles away from sexting, lousy predictive text, emojis and text language - which basically consists of ignoring as many of our perfectly beautiful alphabet letters, and leaving the other person to take a stab at what the heck it's meant to mean!
FOR GOODNESS SAKE, twenty-six letters has w...
In reply to Afrah's three questions:
1) What are your favorite books?
That would be James and the Giant Peach, by Roald Dahl.
I read this over and over again as a child and I have very fond memories attached to that, Afrah. I loved the characters, the idea and most of all; I loved peaches! 😁
2)What are your hobbies?
I occupy my time mostly, with making art. Painting, sketching, photography, sewing, printing.... And going on craft workshops to learn more skills. This coming weekend, I'm going on a workshop with my sewing machine to improve my sewing skills.
3)Are you against animal cruelty?
Dearest pen pals,
What a brilliant prompt this is. Here are my three questions to you. Please answer honestly. 😘
1) What's your earliest memory, and where is it?
2) When was the last time you cried, and why?
3) What is your biggest fear? Is it something that keeps you awake at night, or is it a phobia?
I hope lots of you answer, friends.
Waiting to read your replies. 😘
For Sweedle and her Grandpa
Love, memories and stardust,
Are what we hold dear,
On the passing of loved ones.
Please break down your walls
Brick by brick so love can help
To build you again
Please break away now
Brick by brick if it's needed
For I will hurt you
Please break free from me
Brick by brick, if leaving helps
For you can't be caged
Please break your promise
Brick by brick traps you
For you brought shame here
Please break free in spirit
Brick by brick, love keeps you here
For losing you hurts
Nothing stings more than the reality of DECEPTION. She knew this. The burn had left it's mark on her many times. But she was grateful, because it had taught her how not to get caught, and had saved her life countless times. However, today it was her who was doing the deceiving.
She had liked the banker more than most targets. He had treated her with respect, kindness and courtesy. Something of a rarity, in her line of work. He also had a warm smile, and smiled with his eyes. He seemed a kind man, which disturbed her, so she tried not to dwell.
Agents knew not to allow their feelings to get involved, and Ava was no d...
Dear Lady Skylark - Becca🐦,
Hello, ma'am! It's so good to see your sweet comments on my posts. I'm glad you liked my posts too😊. That's so kind of you.Thank you so much. Take care. I pray for your speedy recovery.
Sorry this took so long, but life has been a struggle lately.
I joined Lettrs over 2 years ago. I have no idea how I found it, but it was primarily to just have a place to type my poetry so that I could share it on other social networks. Soon enough, I realized how amazing Lettrs was with the backgrounds, stamps, penpals, and much more.
I was a little bit in when I discovered the WOD (word of the day) and SOTD (sentence of the day), which I participated in regularly. Then, I found Martha's Photo Challenge and jumped wholeheartedly into that. I also participated in other random prompts and challenges.
But, it wasn't until just a few months ago that I discovered the S...
