Happy Writing, my friends!

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  6. Sorry, willow, another tale of old, with a bit of spice. I am really enjoying these challenges.

  10. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Very short and sweet. Interpet at your leisure. Gone for the week.

  13. A haiku of my thought when I saw the photo...

  16. I'm moving this week, so I had to post an older one with an admittedly weak "key" connection.

    Ah, well...

    ReplyDelete
  17. 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!

  19. Hi Willow

    Love this prompt. I'm sure there are many stories to be told on this one.

    ReplyDelete
  20. My sad little entry is up and in ......

    ReplyDelete
  21. The picture of the old lock tells a story of its own!

    ReplyDelete
  22. 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!!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. No wonder this so popular. Great fun!

    ReplyDelete
  24. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Just throw away the keys....

    ReplyDelete
  26. That was fun, thanks for the challenge!

    ReplyDelete
  27. This is fun! I just cooked myself a nice tale! Took me long enough to pop an idea... Thanks for the challenge!

    ReplyDelete
  28. When I coaxed my muse off the sofa last night, she was in a dark and pensive mood.

    ReplyDelete
  29. This is a much more challenging picture, I must say. But it was fun, nevertheless.

  30. where do you find all these clever items? Or are you a collector like me?

    ReplyDelete
  31. Another fabulous prompt, Willow.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Let me see how to do this...have faith I will catch on (I might be saying this to myself!)

    ReplyDelete
  33. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  34. 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--

    ReplyDelete
  35. ***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!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. I'm late! I'm late! (for a very important magpie!) ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Another emotional story of friendship. Hope you guys like it :-)

  38. No problem, Terresa, I removed your first link! :)

    That's fine, Cynthia, and welcome! (I only see one link for you so far)

    ReplyDelete
  39. What hides behind that locked door?

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  44. This was my first Magpie post.....I am no longer a virgin.

    ReplyDelete
  45. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Thanks Holly! This is my 1st too, such fun! Thanks Magpie Tales, I'll be back...

    ReplyDelete
  47. I was blocked, but forced into something today!

    ReplyDelete
  48. An amazing prompt, although I was stymied for quite some time. Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Ummmm not sure what to comment. My humble offering is now up and ready.

    ReplyDelete
  50. 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...

    ReplyDelete
  51. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Very evocative prompt. There are so many directions to take it: it all depends on what's on the other side of the door.

    ReplyDelete
  53. 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...

    ReplyDelete
  54. This might be my favorite prompt in my short magpie career. Thanks! Keep 'em coming.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Nice pic -- I had fun writing this. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  60. Mine is up--just under the wire. Tried something different...
    Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  61. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I'm hoping I'm not too late? Just posted mine, I'll be around to visit everyone else!

    ReplyDelete
  63. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  64. oops, nevermind...it linked twice.

    ReplyDelete
  65. 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.
