  15. Nae doot at awe! It was more kind of battle-axes for me. Struggled a bit but I got there eventually!

  16. Mine's a little dark for me today. But, I like it. Sometimes kids just feel like that and imagine what it would be like to be the victor instead of the vanquished in the schoolyard hierarchy.

  32. Wow yesterday when I looked at the prompt, which I love BTW, there were only about eight other Mags up. Today I am number 67! That is amazing the number of Magpies and such quick response. I have a lot of reading to do. I better get busy.

  33. Brilliant image - en garde!
    and congratulations on your poetry book! Well done!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Tess,

    I think everyone should view a copy of Prince Valiant starring Robert Wagner! Ah, the thrust and overhead lop of the broadsword!

    Nothing so good as the sound of metal on bone!

  35. I was trying to write something about 'manhood showoffs' lately. And this was a coincidence! I request all of you to please read my post and type in ur frank opinion on that piece.. Thanks :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. This one did not speak to me. I found myself angry with it and ergo my poem.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I was inspired enough to have a second go!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I ended up doing something silly with this.

  39. Tess,

    I tried emailing this, but my email doesn't like the address (willow.willowmanor@gmail.com). My return address: arterialgush@yahoo.com.

    Question about your Mister Linky's Magical links - how do you get your sign in box to stay visible? Did you get the most basic link, or did you get an upgrade - e.g., mine appears differently - and is less visible than yours - as at this link.

    http://readingbypublight.blogspot.com/2011/03/3-word-week-3.html

    I've already scoured the Mister Linky's site, and maybe I'm blind or too tired to see why this is the case, but I believe it's hurting certain endeavors on my site - and I need to fix it.

    Your help is appreciated, if it's forthcoming. If you're super-busy, I understand, and I'll read/write you soon, my friend.

  41. Tess, I have done another link to continue the original magpie post under Louise2, thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I think I knew what I had to write as soon as I saw this image... I have no idea how the write turned out though :)

    Thanks for yet another wonderfully inspiring image, Tess...
    (hugs)

    ReplyDelete
  44. This prompt really rang my bell. Thank you Tess.
