  3. As willow said, you're at it early this morning, but it seems that three of your fans are also.

    Believe it or not, but I must have had a yen for fruit last night, for I wrote today's post "prophetically inspired" by your photo that had not yet appeared on your site.

    Maybe I'll change my name to "DANA, SEER AND PROPHETESS EXTROIDINARE. Readings by appointment only. Ten dollars per minute."

  7. The bitten apple could be lost innocence or it could be a fatal flaw.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Lane, I thought the bite would add some interesting texture!

  9. I am pretty new to writing from prompts and it amazes me every time...I look at the prompt and am totally sure that I can't think of anything and then a moment or two later I write something! It's like magic! lol

    I am really enjoying the magpies.:-)

  10. Magpies are wonderful for getting the creative juices flowing. Last week's Magpie yielded about 10 pages to my short story/book resulting in a late Magpie posting. I had to make a point to be a little early this week.

  11. Hi, I've revamped an old unused site for some of the prompts I'm finding I might be addicted to, lol. Love the image and this one came fast.

  15. Great prompt, willow. I've done my best but, probably could try harder.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Willow, apologies, I seem to be 'butterfingers' with my links, again I have messed up, no 30 is this weeks entry. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  23. effort number two, thoughts posted.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh Puhleeze Willow, can you delete numbers 47 and 48 for me? Screwed up again--see, I used the polite word "screwed"--wanted to make sure you noticed--grin.

    Truly, I'm sorry--no, I'm embarrassed (the truth, finally!) to be such a nuisance each week.....

    I still LOVE this exercise, you cannot put me out for a couple little errors???

  25. 50 entries already, and on the first day?? I think that's a record!

    Love the apple/fall theme, fits my mood exactly today.

    ReplyDelete
  26. PS: Steveroni: I do it all the time (Posting my link again & again to the Magpie linky list thing. Luckily, it wasn't me doing it again this week...)

    ReplyDelete
  27. So many, many ways of interpreting a bitten apple!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Remeber apples can give you the pip...

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oops, I forgot to comment last night. When I saw the Magpie pic, I started thinking in terms of poison apples, and got that old 80s tune "Poison Arrow" stuck in my head. Ear worm!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Mr Linky still doesn't like my new address HERE

    ReplyDelete
  31. No worries, I fixed your Linky, Jinksy. (that was fun to say) ;^)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Is that a honey crisp apple? One of my very favorites.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I love reading everyone's work. Sometimes I comment and sometimes I don't. Thanks Willow for being SO awesome. I hope you enjoy how Nina SImone moved me last night. Bisous, Love and Light, Sender

    ReplyDelete
  34. And you know what... I just realized I cheated by not using hte apple vanity fair prompt. Sorry Willow ;( Love and Light, Sender

    ReplyDelete
  35. I loved this prompt - really had fun with it. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Whoops! More haste, less speed - sorry for the wrong link. Sometimes I look at prompts and am completely clueless - this time I had a clue, but not a very original one :-/

    ReplyDelete
  37. Hello,
    I posted my entry,
    Hope that you enjoy it.
    Cheers!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I didn't want to be a cheater so I used the prompt this time ;) Thanks Willow!

    Bisous, Love and Light, Sender

    ReplyDelete
  39. Such an enticing photo prompt...

    Cleverly stated responses to this week's forbidden fruit.

    I would thank you all individually, but I am having great difficulty with the post sections on the individual blogs, Sorry.

    Well done everyone!

    ReplyDelete
  40. This is one I couldn't resist!! Thanks again!!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  42. i play again this week - thanks willow for the picture - it must be so exciting for you to see what the people are doing with it…
    have a great weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I think the link on #64 needs correcting. It points back to magpie tales.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Wow, this one was posted bright and early and so many jumped right on it....i guess the early bird gets the worm....:-) Wonderful prompt Willow as always! Thanks for all you do! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  45. This Mag was so much fun-both to read and write! I initially was gonna do prose, but the first two lines ended up rhyming so I made it a poem! Haha, I feel like a terrible Roald Dahl :) Gonna go read the mags I haven't read now!

    ReplyDelete
  46. well, i'm late as usual, but up goes my post! hope everyone enjoys!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I am very grateful I cruised on over to the Magpie, the prompt made me smile. I just had my first week of school. My students are a bit devilish.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Can't wait to read the rest. Such a clever-crunchy bunch we are!

    ReplyDelete
  49. My first time posting a magpie but seemed fitting with sending my boys back to school this week and all the memories that come with it.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Mr. Linky is blinky. My original sign-up and comment disappeared. Wonder how that happens??

    Rick

    ReplyDelete
  51. well, it's my first time here, and i'm excited...

    ReplyDelete
  52. Back after a long absence, and hoping to become a regular!

    ReplyDelete
  53. nice image, though it looks pretty simple but i really had a tough time to write something around a half eaten apple.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Sounds like I'm not the only one who went the way I did...now that mine's up, I can go see! Loving magpie.

    ReplyDelete
  55. come on over for some apple pie at my house!

    ReplyDelete
  56. What a great way to start autumn! Great fun to write based on a picture. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  57. I had fun with this one, too. I have only read Brian's so far (I try to write mine first as to not be influenced by everyone else's ideas.) So, now I will go see who thinks like me. I am sure I am not the only one who thought of the witch giving a princess a poison apple, am I? :) Thanks, Willow.

    ReplyDelete
  58. My link isn't posting on Mr. linky for some reason. Have tried several times. My Magpie is A Not So Fairytale Ending

    ReplyDelete
  59. Needing a break with little time to plot, I give you a short one. I can almost hear the bite being taken out of the apple.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Your photographs are so inspiring. This one came to me this morning as I was just waking up.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Two writes this week. Willo, loved this weeks photo

    ReplyDelete
  62. Hello, first time i managed to post properly, I think I have posted twice, on 102 and 103, could you please delete 102?

    ReplyDelete
  63. This seems to be my week for coming in just under the deadline, but I made it.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Hi - apples are so inspiring - they can lead anywhere - so biblical too!Thanks Willow!

    ReplyDelete
  65. i liked the picture... the imperfect apple... first i had felt it should have a been a luscious, shining apple... then i felt, no... this apple was like any one of us... with little imperfections here and there, yet tempting...

    ReplyDelete
  66. Well, better to be the 110th Magpie Tale post than not at all. :)

    ReplyDelete
  67. I am with Karen and Prayer Girl on this... better late than never! This apple was indeed irresistible :)

    ReplyDelete
  73. Well, the picture was quite mischievous so i found it bit interesting to write on. I am a naive story writer. I am looking for honest opinions. Thanks. :)

    ReplyDelete
  74. A little late but I was inspired to post an entry. Enjoy seeing what everyone else contributes.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Had a hard time with this one. Thought about it all week. Don't want to give up just because it's hard. (What kind of example of an English teacher would I be???) Thanks for the continuous challenge Willow! :0)

  77. Hello, just wondering how often a new picture is posted?

    ReplyDelete
  78. What a wonderful idea. I really miss projects like this. I'd love to give it a go for next time. Like Kym, I'm wondering when does the next picture go up?
