The Starving Activist is the sometimes-home for words. AR Neal (that’s me) finds them, cultivates them, and leaves them here. Enjoy.

I am thrilled.I happened to stop long enough a moment ago to breathe, as it has been something of a trying day, and an amazing day--filled with oddly fantastical things.And upon opening my email, I find that I've won this:So you have to go visit Storied Impressions. Here's what you do:

Each month check out the new THEME.Grab your camera and take photos that represent the theme to you.Then, once you have a bunch of stellar pictures, choose your favorite and write a creative piece that shares your insight into the photo you took: story, poem etc.  Be extraordinary!  (250 words-ish)Now, upload your photo and story to your Flickr site – (put your story in the “description” box)
  • If you do NOT have a FLICKR account, you need one to participate – watch here to see how to set one up: FLICKR Account Set UP or just go directly to FLICKR.

Once you’ve loaded your photo/words to Your Flickr site – search the groups for Storied Impressions.  Then look for the Group Pool words in pink – and join the group.Then Add your photo!  Once a week (weekends most likely) I will snag the latest photo/words that have been added to the Storied Impressions Flickr site and post them on the blog here.   If you are a subscriber, you will get an email that there has been a new post on this site – so come by and check out your beautiful work.THEN…See and read at least three other posts and comment, comment, comment!
