Introducing Sweek Weekly Writing Prompts!

Hey Sweekers!

We’re thoroughly enjoying all the great content that you’re posting, and we’re hungry for more! We think it would be fun to jump-start your creativity by putting it to the test in our newest initiative – the Sweekly Writing Prompts! Through these writing prompts, we hope to give to you a weekly dose of inspiration to make your literary voices heard, practice your technical writing skills, and provide the voracious readers of the Sweek community with even more excellent content! Here’s how it’s going to work:

Every week, we will be posting a new writing prompt on our social media channels and as a new chapter of our Sweek Writing Prompts Story on Sweek – these may take the form of phrases, writing assignments, scenarios and more. To participate you just need to publish your story with the #sweekwritingprompt tag  – it’s as simple as that! It’s up to you whether you want to publish your stories separately, or as different chapters of one story. Your creativity is what counts!

Are you ready for this challenge? Let’s get started right away! Do you have an idea for the next writing prompt? Comment below and your suggestion might be chosen as the official Sweek Writing Prompt!

UN Water of United Nations Acknowledges Sweek Writing Projects!

Written by Sweek Keeper: Chinthaka Nanayakkara

Unbelievable, huh? Check this link: UN World Water Day talks about Sweek Writing Projects You will see that I am not kidding! 🙂

Thanking Sweek in an official e-mail for its active engagement in the World Water Day campaign, UN Water of United Nations has expressed their confidence that Sweek’s “blogs and events would certainly be an inspiration to others” who are interested in the World Water Day which is due 22nd March 2018.
UN Water of United Nations further requested Sweek to “share photos from the preparations and activities” informing, “we will do our best to repost/tweet. Please make sure to include the official hashtag #WorldWaterDay so other organizations may easily find you and support you in your cause”
 
As one of its Brand Ambassadors, I take this opportunity to offer my heartfelt thanks to the United Nation’s World Water Day Team who promptly responded to my emails, welcoming me to “download and use all the resources available on the website, as long as following the guidelines”
This achievement would not have been possible without the kind cooperation and efficient coordination displayed by Ms. Veronika Kartovenko, Sabine van der Plas and Marta Palczewska who helped me a lot in putting up the official Sweek blog post on Water, Forest, Metrology and Happiness. Thanks very much!
 
Special thanks go to following Sweekers who sent me their stories with immediate effect since there was an urgent need to write them anew – owing to the fresh theme ‘NATURE FOR WATER’ ushered in by the United Nation’s World Water Day Team.

1. Arya Ashok Dixit – Heaven on Earth
2. Gigi De Grau – Water is Alive
3. Ryder Black – Epitome of Elegance, Lake Eufala
4. Olivia Werapermall – Perpetual Water Spring
5. Abhineet Agarwal – Mula River
6. Tania Mckenzie – The Source Of Life
7. John Alwinson – Colorless Honey, The Kaveri
8. Sanvedna – In Search of the Lost Springs
9. Toshiba – A Neglected Pond

Check my YouTube video that promotes these stories!
 
For all those enthusiastic Sweekers who are interested in my next writing project, be on the look out! Highly likely it would take place focusing on June 30th the International Asteroid day. If you are interested drop me a ‘hi’ at my well-known e-mail address – writesupp@gmail.com! Will be happy to respond!

Happy Sweeking, everyone! 🙂
