When was the last time you were ready to throw in the proverbial towel? Did you end up letting go, or decided to fight on anyway?
Earlier this month when I had notice about the new system of the daily prompts for 2015 I was tempted to throw in the towel.
Seeing old prompts republished with my responses written one and a half-year ago in the grid was discouraging. And this was only the last chapter of a slow decline of the prompt in the Daily Post. I’m not going to talk about the technical problems with the pingbacks that left us without communication last year. In the good old times we used to be the main headline of the page. Now we are relegated to a sidebar. The photobloggers and their weekly challenge have gained our old privileged place. Good for them!
I like to answer to the questions plainly and honestly, so when I’m asked for the second time the exact same prompt I have a serious problem of inspiration. Imagination it’s not my best quality.
This is why I was so discouraged seeing so many already done prompts published. Luckily there have been lately some new ideas.
I decided to keep answering the prompt, trying to find new focus and new ideas, because I want to keep in contact with the bloggers I met through it, read them and interchange comments with them.
