Farewell to Pegman!

See Pegman’s last post here:  Farewell!

It’s the end of an era. No more weekly What Pegman Saw stories, oh no! I’m so sad to see this wonderful writing prompt end, and I’m profoundly grateful to Josh and Karen for keeping it up for as long as they did. Three and a half years went by so fast, somehow!

I’ve been so busy with work lately — not to mention long interruptions due to eye surgeries and recovering from them — that I haven’t had much time to write. Pegman has been my prod and my excuse on a regular basis. Now I’ll have to find another writing prompt family. But not this week. HUGE deadline at work, so me and my whole team are drowning in it practically 24/7.

Hope to see you all again soon. Happy writing, happy reading, and take care!

    • Definitely a great opportunity. Especially for me — it was so perfect, being able to choose any image that was Eneana-friendly, and getting a little touristy tour while I was at it.


  1. So sorry this is ending for you and the others. I always enjoyed what came out of the prompts. But who knows where this will lead? I know Joy that you are bursting with ideas, so you’ll find another way to wake the muse. Until then… good luck to you and your team with completing your work project.

    • Thanks Louis, we are working away super hard over here, whew! Taking a short break to catch up before diving back in. I’m always bursting with ideas, yes, but I found that having this regular prompt was very motivating to corral those ideas into an orderly format. I’m not sure I’ll find another one that’s so perfectly suited for me, between the timing (Saturday morning!), the wonderful flexibility (and yet guidance) on what images to use, and the relatively small family of contributors (which resulted in “enough” other people reading my story without me having to read “too many” other people’s stories and comment on them every week). Well, we’ll see. The great thing about working on a huge project with a looming deadline is the freedom to put off all the other decisions and tasks. No time now!


    • I’m hoping 2021 will be better too — for all of us! I have been trying to catch up on personal stuff (and sleep) after months of nonstop long hours and stress at work. Feeling pretty overwhelmed still, especially knowing all the work (and stress) that’s waiting when we all return to work soon. But I’m hoping to be able to carve out more time for writing and blogging… Given that I’ve been doing basically ZERO, the only way to go is up!
