Mag 3

Wow! Magpie Tales is cookin' with gas! Your enthusiastic
participation has been just super. A huge thanks to all of the
talented writers out there who are making The Mag a great
success.

One little housekeeping reminder. We still had quite a few broken
links this week, so after entering your blog address into Mr. Linky,
click it, to make sure it's functioning. The best method is to copy
and paste your entire address into the Linky window (all that http
stuff included). That way, you're sure not to leave out any dits or
dots, and everyone will be able to visit your blog.

If you're new to Magpie Tales, see sidebar for instructions.

Happy writing, my bloggy friends!




here's your new photo prompt

  15. I almost forgot to check in for the new prompt. This will take some head scratching..but not tonight...

  16. I've been working on a poem about weights. Really interesting some of the early ways of measure. I'll see what I can do. Maybe this will hasten the poetic process? Should it be hastened or should it be slowed down, like slow cooking?

  17. I've posted a poem for magpie 3
    It sits underneath Mr. Toast, you see.
    But don't be alarmed and cause a fuss
    It too must be read or I think I will bust.

  21. So happy I found you Willow and Magpie tales. What an opportunity to stoke the brain.
    I love flash fiction,reading it and attempting it...like doing jumping jacks in the morning.
    I looked over the past two prompts....you're a hard taskmaster! I hope I can "measure" up with this gang.
