oops... didn't mean for it to post twice (must have been a ghost)...
Great image! Have a great week everyone!!
No problem, Laurie...I fixed it...))
i am so happy to start writing about things again, maybe not a great writer but i feel like a writer :)
Oh, I love typewwitews. I went with humow. I hope.
Link number eight is the wrong url. Please delete.Too many poems written this dawn
Oh, I know all about the block.
Hi Tess, great photo as always. It actually reminds me of the little tableaus that have been used in "Sleep No More" on Off-Broadway==a kind of dance/performance piece re Macbeth. I did my own drawing of it on my handy little iPad 2 with the wonderful Brushes App. (I'm not meaning to sound like a commercial for Apple, but it's a terrific device if you like to draw and paint and do not have a working studio.) Take care. K.
I don't think there's a writer in the world who wouldn't have a few choice things to say about the infernal machine they use everyday.
I was having trouble finding inspiration, so I let that inspire me...
Fun inspiration. Thanks for the Sunday morning inspiration!
hello..just a try out. i can't really think of a good one...thanks a lot! i'm enjoying reading magpie tales.
Inspiration has always been myconstant companion, like my shadow;probably a direct result of absorbingtens of thousands of films; all thoseplots, characters, color, music. Asa kid, aware that life is short, I wassmug enough to state, "Naw, I don'twant to take the time to read thebook. I'll wait until they bring themovie out." Hell, now I am writingpoetry that is a movie; go figure.
Finally came up with something...Jamie
Just nonsense from me - so what's new;-)
I was naughty and shared an unrelated 2nd, because sometimes it's my nature -- sorry...signed, Bad Bobby
This photo is super, brings back many memories. I used it for Magpie Tales and also for the Sunday mini-challenge over at Imaginary Garden with Real Toads.Kay, Alberta, CanadaAn Unfittie’s Guide to Adventurous Travel
Another fun prompt, thank you Tess.
Great pic - which inspires more silliness from me!
I tried to find the artist, it has such an Andrew Wyeth feel, but no luck.
very appropriate for the start of NaNoWriMo:-)much lovemartine
A Fossil! ;)
Another top pic Tess and as Martine says, perfect for NaNoWriMo...
a brilliant picture, thank you!!
great prompt. i cheated as i wrote this poem a number of yrs ago but to my mind it went with the photo or vice versa
Tap tap tap.
As the elegant calling cards of Victorian times might have stated, " After an unavoidable absence, I am at home. May I be permitted the blissful pleasure of your company?"
Nana Jo! Absolutely! Wonderful to see you, dear friend!
Hee, hee. This is the first thing I've really felt inspired to write about in a while. My contribution is up, hope you enjoy.Thank you, Tess!
Many Thanks to Kathy Bischoping for pointing me to a faulty link in my URL. It's fixed now, it should work through entry #51. Sorry about that!
umm, hi? lol.. just so happy to be back writing again at magpietales.. such a long time.. thank you Miss Tess for the photo prompt this week.(:~Kelvin
Lovely prompt that rings a bell at the end of every line!Now . . is this a no-brainer? I suggest there would be fewer faulty links if bloggers tested them (i.e. click yer own link) after entering them?
Trust Doc to spot the answer! His suggestions ring bells all over the place...Though I must admit, I didn't test my link today! :)
A short one for me this week, thanks Tess.
Thanks for the image. It looks a LOT like the typewriter I used to own.
i am in with a little halloween tale...smiles.
I love seeing your image on Sunday so I have a day to mull...Hope you don't mind that I lightened it up and found a spooky splotch on the wall by the typewriter :-)
Glad I finally made it! Good challenge!
I thought I'd said no, but your prompt has shaken a certain decision, now in poetic form.
Finally finished mine! Now I can start reading the others ... Well, actually I will start tomorrow - Halloween is a big day/evening at our house. Thank you very much for these prompts. I look forward to them and I can honestly tell you - each one I think "I can't do it" But somehow I push myself and squeeze it in and I feel I have learned so much since I started doing Magpie Tales.
It took me a while, but finally the keys started a tapping.....thanks for another great prompt Tess! :-)
Love the inspiration...it has been so long since I typed on a typewriter, but I remember its perils with my errant fingers.
Yes indeed. Another stimulating prompt. Thank you.
I normally get so frustrated I just walk off and punch little smurfs. Afterwords I have blue stain hands which look really cool. Thank you for the writing prompt though!
Loved this! I was really able to run with it!!
great photo for this week - very intriguing
Oh dear ... I am too tired to make a comment. ;)
Another inspiring prompt, and I ended up writing yet another story.@Tess... I hope you don't mind me breaking the rules so blatantly every time! :)Cheers,Arnab Majumdar on SribbleFest.com
I remember the time when people still wrote letters. The paper. The ink. In the dark ages even before typewriters!
The pic is of a typewriter, but my poem is about handwriting...
Mmmm - memories.................
Oh, yes - the paper, the paper...I love the shaky handwriting of my grandmothers, too.I'm doing a few writing prompts this month, in case anyone wants to play. http://stephcupoftea.blogspot.com/2011/11/tea-and-truth-month-of-writing-prompts.html
Better late than not at all. I just posted "Write From The Heart".Oops thought this was posted.
ohhh to recall the days of using elements and erasers...
FINALLY finished it. rethought it, rewrote it, rechanged it 4 or 5 different times....
Having learned to type on a Remington upright, I was surprised at how old this seemed.
A bit late for this one, but I loved the photo so I couldn't resist. :)
Ah, the Moores! It's hard to think of a family dynasty more worthy of a Magpie Tale tribute.
