I really like this picture.I was struck by the fact that the key hole itself looks utterly untouched, unused, yet the area surrounding it looks scraped by the attempts of keys.
Am I the only one that doesn't get a photo when coming to this link? Just the text, "Happy Writing, my friends!" but no photo.
i wrote quickly the first thing that came in mind...
It looks fine on my end, Junk Thief. Hey, all, can you see the photo?
This is a difficult one, willow :( HAHAHA
Sorry, willow, another tale of old, with a bit of spice. I am really enjoying these challenges.
I can see it, but it loads slowly .
Hey Willow, this one was fun...and I can see the photo...Thank you again for another wonderful prompt! :-)
Oh so challenging .... we Magpies love a good one!
Seen very tiny on your Facebook stream, it looked like an exotic eye, or maybe a ring. I have already decided I want to wear it on my middle finger.
took a week off but i am back...
I'm in . . . but barely.
Very short and sweet. Interpet at your leisure. Gone for the week.
Another short entry.
A haiku of my thought when I saw the photo...
Just a little something that came to mind.
got it done,have fun reading!:)thanks a lot for the feedback!
I'm moving this week, so I had to post an older one with an admittedly weak "key" connection.Ah, well...
I can see it fine! :)I have added to my cliff hanger from last week using this week's inspiration. What a great prompt Willow this couldn't have fit better for fitting into and directing my story line. Thanks for another great challenge!
a quickie after a long day at work. i needed a release--this was a good one. couldn't help but see an eye in this pic
Hi WillowLove this prompt. I'm sure there are many stories to be told on this one.
My sad little entry is up and in ......
I kept it short this time
The picture of the old lock tells a story of its own!
willow, i finally found the inspiration i needed to write and post again. i thoroughly enjoyed this challenge and plan to become a regular participant. thanks!!!
No wonder this so popular. Great fun!
Now that is a lock that has character. All the scars from missed attempts, Hummmmmmm! I think I see a story on the horizon, we'll see. I'll have to go around and see what everyone else is dreaming up.
Just throw away the keys....
That was fun, thanks for the challenge!
This is fun! I just cooked myself a nice tale! Took me long enough to pop an idea... Thanks for the challenge!
When I coaxed my muse off the sofa last night, she was in a dark and pensive mood.
This is a much more challenging picture, I must say. But it was fun, nevertheless.-Weasel
where do you find all these clever items? Or are you a collector like me?
Another fabulous prompt, Willow.
Let me see how to do this...have faith I will catch on (I might be saying this to myself!)
Sorry I had to link twice because I don't read directions. I just plow forward ever in fear of risking too much reflection and delaying my resolve to participate! I linked before I wrote the poem, then I linked after!
Well, I got the hang of the procedures. Now, all I need is some writing talent...any for sale. I am #47...and brought in the LOCK to kick a three-pointer at the game-end. Thia IS fun--
***Willow: I'm having linking problems again -- my laptop has a glitch in it somewhere and messes up my posts from time to time. My first link is now defunct, the last link works. Thanks!! :)
I'm late! I'm late! (for a very important magpie!) ;-)
Another emotional story of friendship. Hope you guys like it :-)http://thetinywindow.wordpress.com/2010/07/31/the-box-of-memories/
No problem, Terresa, I removed your first link! :)That's fine, Cynthia, and welcome! (I only see one link for you so far)
What hides behind that locked door?
I'm up with my second Magpie Tale contribution. This one is also a 55!
my second Magpie Tale, too! I love this pic. Thanks!
Photo came up for me..and thanks again for an interesting challenge!
Thanks for the photo prompt. It's a very good photo.
This was my first Magpie post.....I am no longer a virgin.
Thanks Caterine ^^ for introducing me to Magpie Tales. I came, I saw, I gave it a go..though I think mine turned sounding a little more like erotica.
Oopsie .... I meant Catherine.
Thanks Holly! This is my 1st too, such fun! Thanks Magpie Tales, I'll be back...
I was blocked, but forced into something today!
An amazing prompt, although I was stymied for quite some time. Thank you.
Ummmm not sure what to comment. My humble offering is now up and ready.
it took me a while to get up the courage to post my 2nd one for this prompt...it is quite personal...but it was very cathartic...
There are so many voices here that I dare not read any until my post is done. I have used a character I wrote of two weeks ago, Hattie.
Very evocative prompt. There are so many directions to take it: it all depends on what's on the other side of the door.
lovely prompt -- it went three different directions before it settled in. lol On the bright side, I've got two more things to work with...
This might be my favorite prompt in my short magpie career. Thanks! Keep 'em coming.
Nice pic -- I had fun writing this. Thanks.
hello... fell in love with the foto, so glad i could participate.... waiting for the bus
I'm in. Trying haiku for the first time since grade eight. Look out! (Or hang in!)
I'm really enjoying this group. Your support has meant a lot to me!
Yiipppeee.. my 3rd Magpie, and I am in love with it!!! You guys rock!!!Here is mine for this week... Have a lovely week ahead!!!
Mine is up--just under the wire. Tried something different...Thank you!
I almost didn't do this one cause I had no idea what to write about...until this morning and it came in five min. flat. Glad i made it, didn't want to feel like a cop-out.
I'm hoping I'm not too late? Just posted mine, I'll be around to visit everyone else!
I wrote mine a little late this week...it's been a long week. I can't get it to link, probably because I'm too late, but it's up.
oops, nevermind...it linked twice.
I see it fine Willow, just slow in getting my fingers to the keys. It reminds me of an eye too.Been reading Kat's book.QMM
