Writer Wednesday #BlogHop Kick-Off (November 19, 2014)

I’m sorry to be running late in the day putting this out.  I don’t have any excuses to give…  Just one of those days.  This week our host is Heather and, like she says, “We’d all love to read your stories” – A side note of my own.  I thoroughly enjoy reading the stories that people write and the little nuances of themselves and their lives they put in the stories.  I look forward to the same in yours.

Now to Heather……

Hello to all on this fine Wednesday, I hope the past week has been kind.

As I sit and write this it’s 6 o’clock in the morning and all is peaceful. The babies and my husband are still fast asleep, it’s dark outside and I have the side lamps on. It’s this time of day that I enjoy, that I get to collect my thoughts before the bustle of the day begins. It doesn’t always last long so I have to make the most of it, once the littlies are up that peace is shattered.

Still, I wouldn’t be without them 😉


And, seeing as it’s Wednesday, how about a fresh prompt to keep you going through the week?

Here are the stories from last week, spawned from one picture and five words. I hope they give you inspiration to have a go yourself:

The Will to Serve by Debb Stanton
The Service by Sally
So, if you’re new to the blog hop, why not be encouraged by these wonderful stories, and try your own hand at it. We’d all love to read and share whatever you have to offer.
As a little reminder, here are the rules:
1) Use the photo(s) and prompt to write a 500-word story; all elements
of the prompt 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
2) The Photo(s) must be visible in your blog post and where 1 photo/5
words is the theme, the 5 words MUST be clearly referenced in your
story. Variations on a word are allowed within reason (for example:
adding s, ed, ing to the word to be grammatically correct); but creating
a new, unrelated, word is not. (To see an example of a “1 photo/5 word” story see Faith, Hope, Love, and Pink by one of our hosts, Debb Stanton.)
3) Photos are the property of the hostess for the week, unless otherwise
mentioned. Please Do Not share photos and/or prompt words 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 so your blog audience and
the blog hop community may all be connected.
5) Link your story through the blue froggy at bottom by the following
Tuesday (direct link to story, not your whole blog, please).
And now to the good stuff, the prompts for this week:
salt, galaxy, denim, trap, magician
Have fun, and don’t forget to sign up your story once you’re finished!
