With Thanksgiving this week, things got a bit hectic and I have to applause Debb for doing such a wonderful job this week with the hop. What with one of our hostesses on sabbatical, another just having another baby and dealing with medical issues there, and myself up to my eyeballs in helping [disabled] hubby out with cooking & such to prepare for Mexican-style Thanksgiving tonight and then a more traditional Turkey-dinner on Friday. Please keep all of our lovely hostesses in your thoughts and prayers. I know there is a lot going on all around, with health & medical issues.
Hello everyone, and happy Thanksgiving week! ‘Tis a good time to be thankful! I would like to mention the gratefulness I have for (to name but a few) my fellow blog hop hostesses and the writers who grace our pages with their delightful stories. And my oh my, I was so impressed by Heather’s photo prompt last week that I knew I wanted to write for it; but my current editing assignments took over. No entry from Mrs. Stanton this week. 😦
Here are some wonderful reading options for you from last week’s prompts:
- Midnight Visitors by Lyn C (welcome back to the hop, dear Lyn!)
- An Evening Jaunt by Sally’s Scribbles
- Running For Her Life by Tena Carr
Do you have a burning desire to participate in the blog hop? There is a little matter of rules…we’d like to hear from you, but please follow the rules in order to make this fun and fair for all.
I will post the rules for using the two picture type of prompt, which I am using this week.
1) Use the photos to write a 500-word story; both photos must be a feature in the brief story you create. We aren’t counting, but for the fairness of the readers please, no 1000+ word entries.
2) The photos must be visible in your blog post.
3) Photos are the property of the hostess for the week, unless otherwise mentioned. Please do not share photos as your own.
4) In order to honor the community-purpose of the blog hop, we ask that you please reference the blog hop in your post (you can even display the Writer Wednesday Blog Hop badge if you desire) so your blog audience and the blog hop community may all be connected.
5) WHERE TO SEND YOUR STORY HAS CHANGED, JUST FOR THIS WEEK. I AM NOT ABLE TO GET THE CODE FOR THE BLUE FROGGY, SO PLEASE JUST SHOOT ME AN EMAIL TO: email@example.com WITH YOUR NAME, NAME OF YOUR BLOG, AND YOUR STORY, AND I WILL GET IT TO THE OTHER HOSTESSES NEXT WEEK. THANK YOU!
If you have any questions or need any help don’t hesitate to contact one of the hop hosts: Tena, Debb, or Heather (our fourth host Leanne is on a sabbatical due to health concerns and we ask that you continue to keep her in your prayers for complete recovery and return to full health). DO NOT USE THE BLUE FROGGY THIS WEEK BUT INSTEAD SEND YOUR NAME, NAME OF YOUR BLOG, AND YOUR STORY TO firstname.lastname@example.org.
Okay, okay, I can hear you say, “Come on with the prompts already!” 🙂 Let me just say: the picture on the left is pretty traditional for this time of year, but your story does not have to be about the holiday of Thanksgiving. The picture on the right was chosen for its uniqueness (and out of my curiosity to see how you blend the themes of the two pictures). 🙂
