1000 Word Experiment




As you all probably know, I love words; but I also love photography. My late father was a writer and an amateur photographer; and so it would seem, the acorn didn't fall far from the tree in my case. Being a writer means that ideas usually come at the strangest of times like when I'm driving my daughter to school or when  I'm watching television. This morning an idea came to me as I was lying in bed, not asleep, but not quite ready to get up yet.

The statement, A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words, kept running through my mind. Peacefully lying  in my semi groggy state, the writer in me longed to somehow connect my love of writing with my love of photography. And then it happened, I came up with my 1000 Word Experiment. My idea goes something like this: 1. Each participant must leave five unique words in the comment section describing the picture above. 2. Each participant is asked to share this experiment/contest with at least one other friend. 3. Each Participant needs to fill out the form below so I have the winner's contact info. I will randomly select a name from all the participants to receive a copy of my book Fern Valley

So let's get cracking and start digging deep for words, words, words; and remember to spread the news because we need your friends cooperation if we are going to be able to complete this experiment

Signing off for now with wishes for a bright and beautiful day!

  1. I love the concept and hope you succeed. I'm wondering if your sites are too high considering all 1000 words must individually describe the picture. If someone wrote 1000 words about the picture there would be lots of other words like:
    I
    love
    the
    way
    they
    smell
    ..........

    1. In your comment is where you write your five words! You can count the six you already wrote if you want too.

    1. Thank you, Aileen. I have loved that word for a long time. :) It just feels good on the tongue and goes so well with darling. For example: "My dear dulcet darling..." Not that many characters could get away with that bit of alliteration. ;)

      This was a great idea! I might steal it later, with permission, I hope. :)
