Reena’s Exploration Challenge #100

1,2,3…… and here we reach 100..

100 is not a great achievement, when I see the stalwarts on Wordpress attracting a horde of writers every week. But, I take immense pride in reaching here.

When I started, I had planned 10 challenges. I did not have more ideas at that point of time, and I lacked confidence that the galaxy of writers here would care to explore this space. At one point, I even made an announcement about discontinuing the Exploration Challenge. But, it had become an inner need, an addiction for me, and I continued.

It has been a roll since then. The Challenge drew writers from different backgrounds with distinct writing styles, the brilliance scattered on the blog dazzled, and ideas kept flowing. There was no inhibition about sharing personal stories or insights. Sharing created bonds. Sharing gave new insights into common premises of thought processes. I’ve never felt parched after that.

Thank you, one and all, for being here …

Just to mark the centenary, I give a link to my work shared on Issuu. It is a compilation of WordPress archives.

connects to challenges that

tomorrow will bring

So, here we are with this week’s prompt…


The limitation this week is 100 words, though there is no restriction on the format. It can be prose, poetry, essay, reflections, reminiscences, anecdotes or anything you deem worth sharing.

Let the creativity flow. I await with baited breath.

Reena Saxena’s take

Photography as an abstract art – It doesn’t matter what it represents.What matters is how one interprets it and feels its beauty.
