The Practical Practitioner

bridge (1)

Welcome to a new start.

With about two years of blogging under my belt, I have decided to take the small writer’s community with whom I have been blessed, and allow The Daily Post to supplement us with new writers.

Each week you will find a new picture prompt to facilitate your writer’s juices. The prompt will have its copyright/ publication privileges easily posted. Please feel free to post the photo prompt and your classic works on your personal blog.

Feel free to follow this blog by clicking the FOLLOW button in the sidebar, as well as my personal blog, It’s All in Finding the Right Words. 

I am looking forward to meeting many, many more bloggings in the next years.

Thank You

Thanks for Your Patience



During the last two months (plus) my internet presence and participation has been very sporadic. I have not answered as many friends’ likes, responded to as many prompts, or even participated fully in my own flash challenge blog.

We have had a family upheaval with illnesses followed by the passing of my dad.

I think that as of this week, I will be able to participate once again and become a full member of the writing communities.  I value greatly the chances to write for the many unique contests and I cherish dearly the correspondence and encouragement from fellow writers.

Thank you all for your kindness and understanding.
