Photo 101: A Month in Pictures

Genieve Dawkins - Author Blog

March 2015 and Photo 101 are over. I’m still reading the Photography 101 e-book, so I guess I technically still haven’t finished the course, although I’m on-track for the end of the day. What an experience Photo 101 has been!

Story Challenge of the Week

Broken Mirrors

Welcome to Monday! Honestly, yesterday kind of felt like Monday for me. It’s that point in the semester where the days blur together and I can’t really tell one from the other at all. Anyway, I have a story challenge for you. So, you know the rules. Take your subject and run with it. Write me a story of 1000 words or less and stay on topic. As before, if it’s in any way applicable, you should use this to try to develop your world a little more :).

Your Challenge: Write me a story about the community. This needs to be a story about a particular kind of community or what it’s like to live in a community. However, you could focus on elements of individuality within the community, or of the nature of a community, or some other aspect of practical life in a community. In some way though…

LOVE!!

Love is a variety of different feelings, states, and attitudes that ranges from interpersonal affection (“I love my mother”) to pleasure (“I loved that meal”). It can refer to an emotion of a strong attraction and personal attachment.[1] It can also be a virtue representing human kindness, compassion, and affection—”the unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another”.[2] It may also describe compassionate and affectionate actions towards other humans, one’s self or animals.[3]
