Want to see a really creepy video?
No, it's not a horror clip or anything, but an insight into a day in the year 1901.
(by the way this guy's channel is a goldmine for old/historical footage)
As a writer, what do you see when you watch those faces?
Knowing that every single person in this clip is no longer with us.
Imagining that they are seeing YOU in the future just as you are watching them now.
So many fascinating stories in every single face.
How will be regarded by those watching us a hundred years from now?
(went back to the simple format since folks were having a hard time with my 'fancy' layout...and it looked too all-over-the-place anyway)
And since today is Earth Day, feel free to stop by the item below to see what your fellow Writing.com
members have to say about it.

Okay, after much thought, "a very Wodehouse challenge" will be going on a hiatus after this round
(well I think I already mentioned it in the previous post)
1. I need to write up tasks for some more badges I've been sitting on
(and if you'd like to be a task-writer, holler at me so I can assign some to you *lol*)
2. I have a bunch of MBs with no one available to give them out! Which brings me to the point of
all the many MBs sitting in the shelves gathering dust because their owners are either no longer members or
they haven't logged in for some time. It breaks my heart.
3. The reason for creating this contest, wasn't just for me to stack up on MBs (as fun as that is), but it
was to give others - who might not have enough gps to donate to activities to earn them otherwise -
an opportunity to do so, while having fun.
Where's the fun when so many exclusives remain locked away???
4. So either I stop giving out exclusives and just concentrate on the many other generics/community badges or...I don't know.
5. And no, I'm not going to shut this down completely, after all you lovely folks have been so kind enough to
make it earn another Quill Award, but it can be sometimes discouraging especially trying to get
And trust me, I am more than appreciative of the 'regulars' who keep coming back to support this - including those willing to shell out their exclusives.
You guys are the bestest!
Anyhoo, enough of my rambling. I'm off to get some shut-eye.
Maybe when I wake up I'll be in a much happier mood or something.
This will be the last round before the hiatus/break, so grab a character quickly
and join us in the fun!
Oh, by the way, did I forget to mention this little ol' thing won another QUILL AWARD!
Whoooohoooo!! Thanks again to all those who voted and to everyone who keeps participating
to keep it award-worthy! Thank you, all!
But yeah, just in case you've been living under a rock, the final season of that little known show "Game of Thrones" is going to be broadcast this month. So in honor of it, the Wodehouse challenge devotes
the entire month to GOT!
P.S: We are still accepting new badges/challenges for the activity! Sadly, I have quite a few challenges/badges gathering dust because the members are no longer active.
So if you would like to showcase any you've got, feel free to send them my way!
Considering I've watched the complete Star Trek TOS over 4x (and counting)
writing for the fandom has never occurred me until I realized the prompt at
"The Bard's Hall Contest" asked for it.
So I guess it's time to officially burst this gif out:
