  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. I was having trouble finding inspiration, so I let that inspire me...

    ReplyDelete
  12. Fun inspiration. Thanks for the Sunday morning inspiration!

  13. hello..just a try out. i can't really think of a good one...

    thanks a lot! i'm enjoying reading magpie tales.

  14. Inspiration has always been my
    constant companion, like my shadow;
    probably a direct result of absorbing
    tens of thousands of films; all those
    plots, characters, color, music. As
    a kid, aware that life is short, I was
    smug enough to state, "Naw, I don't
    want to take the time to read the
    book. I'll wait until they bring the
    movie out." Hell, now I am writing
    poetry that is a movie; go figure.

  17. I was naughty and shared an unrelated 2nd, because sometimes it's my nature -- sorry...

  18. 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.

  19. Another fun prompt, thank you Tess.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Great pic - which inspires more silliness from me!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I tried to find the artist, it has such an Andrew Wyeth feel, but no luck.

    ReplyDelete
  22. very appropriate for the start of NaNoWriMo:-)
    much love

    ReplyDelete
  23. Another top pic Tess and as Martine says, perfect for NaNoWriMo...

    ReplyDelete
  24. a brilliant picture, thank you!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. 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

    ReplyDelete
  26. 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?"

    ReplyDelete
  27. Nana Jo! Absolutely! Wonderful to see you, dear friend!

    ReplyDelete
  28. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  29. 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!

    ReplyDelete

  31. 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?

    ReplyDelete
  32. 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! :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. A short one for me this week, thanks Tess.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Thanks for the image. It looks a LOT like the typewriter I used to own.

    ReplyDelete
  35. i am in with a little halloween tale...smiles.

    ReplyDelete
  36. 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 :-)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Glad I finally made it! Good challenge!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I thought I'd said no, but your prompt has shaken a certain decision, now in poetic form.

    ReplyDelete
  39. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  40. It took me a while, but finally the keys started a tapping.....thanks for another great prompt Tess! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Love the inspiration...it has been so long since I typed on a typewriter, but I remember its perils with my errant fingers.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Yes indeed. Another stimulating prompt. Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  43. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Loved this! I was really able to run with it!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. great photo for this week - very intriguing

    ReplyDelete
  46. Oh dear ... I am too tired to make a comment. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  47. 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,

  48. I remember the time when people still wrote letters. The paper. The ink. In the dark ages even before typewriters!

    ReplyDelete
  49. The pic is of a typewriter, but my poem is about handwriting...

    ReplyDelete
  50. 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

  51. Better late than not at all. I just posted "Write From The Heart".

    Oops thought this was posted.

    ReplyDelete
  52. ohhh to recall the days of using elements and erasers...

    ReplyDelete
  53. FINALLY finished it. rethought it, rewrote it, rechanged it 4 or 5 different times....

    ReplyDelete
  54. Having learned to type on a Remington upright, I was surprised at how old this seemed.

    ReplyDelete
  55. A bit late for this one, but I loved the photo so I couldn't resist. :)

    ReplyDelete
  56. Ah, the Moores! It's hard to think of a family dynasty more worthy of a Magpie Tale tribute.
