Thursday Doors – Writing Challenge – 2021

The First Annual Thursday Doors Writing Challenge began on April 27, 2021. The members of the Thursday Doors community have graciously contributed doors to be used as inspiration, and some eager writers have already started to work from this inspiration to produce stories and poems.

Since we already have some writers who have posted some content. I am listing the written works in the first list. I took the liberty of adding a title to some work that was untitled. Beneath that the list of source images. There is still plenty of time to be inspired and join this challenge. Written entries can be contributed until noon on May 29, 2021.

Sofia AlvesDoors and scene – “Doors galore! This is Guimarães, considered Portugal’s birthplace, has its centre classified as World Heritage Site”
Jean ReinhardtThursday Doors – Murlough Bay Cottages, County Antrim – The first image is a neat little house with a half door (also known as a Dutch door). It has the word Bothy written on it, which is a small dwelling left unlocked to be used as a refuge by travellers.
Pam – Butterfly SandThe image I am contributing is one of fancy. I won’t say anything more because I don’t want to sway anyone one way or another. I hope many people get involved with this challenge!
Manja Mexi MexcessiveManja has offered any of the doors in this post, or in any of her previous posts. Manja has hundreds (maybe thousands) of doors to choose from.
Marian Allen – Author LadyBehind the tiny door: “You are beautiful.” Even if you’re on the floor of the ladies’ loo.
Janis @ RetirementallyChallengedI found this door about three years ago while on an artists’ studio tour in Southern California’s high desert, not too far from Joshua Tree National Park.
Janet at sustainabiliteaFrom a California vacation in San Diego and in Redondo Beach – One of my daughter’s and my daily activities was taking a long walk, either by the beach or through neighborhoods with beautiful homes (and doors)…or both.
Katy Trail CreationsFallenstein house – a house built in the…1840s”. The property was one of the original lots of the city laid out by the 13 founders… He never owned this property, though. His descendants still own the oldest single family owned drug store in the United States.

  1. Dan, I hate I missed this, but I have been out of commission. Your comment page did not recognize my gravatar, and I cannot see my comment as I tyoe. I hope it isn’t all wonky and full of typos.
