I know many of you will be busy with the holiday weekend,
but I'm going to go ahead and post a prompt, for those of you
who would like to participate. Is it my imagination, or do the
magpie posts just keep getting better and better? It's thrilling
to see all the wonderful talent out there. Thanks so much for
your participation. I don't know about you, but I am having
heaps of fun!
Just a note of bloggy housekeeping. It has been mentioned,
and I wholeheartedly agree, that it might be more convenient
for readers, if you would wait and sign up after your Magpie
Tale has been posted.
So, from now on, please sign up with the URL, linking directly
to your current magpie post.
Get it? Got it? Good!
So, without further ado, here is this week's photo. Have a
wonderful Easter weekend, my friends.
Nice! And fitting for the season too. This should be interesting...ReplyDelete
At the risk of sounding obtuse, we're still targeting Monday night, right? I don't want to miss the bus (oops wrong challenge), I mean boat.ReplyDelete
I think I might end up with two links there, please delete one :)ReplyDelete
Jennifer, I think so, but in my case I just wanted to post early (be one of the first so I'm at the top of the list).
Now that it's link when you post, you could also post whenever(before the linky expires) because people won't visit until they see your link on the linky anyway.
Yes, try to have your post up no later than 8:00 a.m. EST on Tuesday. (I updated the instructions on the sidebar) Although, the widget is usually open until I post the new one on Thursdays.ReplyDelete
Also, make sure you don't sign up in Linky until your post is up!
Sorry to be Mr Thickie, but what is it? Some kind of decorative egg?ReplyDelete
Pete, yes, it's a hand painted wooden egg from Russia, but you can make it be whatever your muse fancies.ReplyDelete
Ah. Ooops. I signed in BEFORE reading the post.ReplyDelete
Maybe you could just post the prompt on Friday and post the link thing for the round up on Tuesday? That would avoid so many links without stories.
Good idea Willow posting ipso facto. I think I will inspire the Muse by luxuriating in a warm bath and meditating on this one. Should I go Faberge egg, Cosmic egg or completely scrambled eggs? I love eggs!ReplyDelete
This is my first time here ~ hope I've followed the rules. If not, for sure I shall the next time. :)ReplyDelete
You said the prompt was easy. I found the story of the "NAILS" to be waaaaaaay easier than this. The minute I saw the prompt, my jaded heart heard this line, "And like the egg at her feet, her life lay in a thousand little pieces." Yeah, nothing says happy-happy, joy-joy and Easter than a shattered egg. Guess that is why my blog is called Jaded Heart. :)ReplyDelete
oops...Suz #12 doesn't linkReplyDelete
but suz #17 does
please delete #12-suz
That egg is beautiful..is it yours..lucky you
My post is up. Happy Easter everyone.ReplyDelete
Ah, quite appropriate for the season.ReplyDelete
Glad to take part again. I hope we all didn't have the same idea. :-)ReplyDelete
Okay, Suz, I deleted #12. You're good to go, now.ReplyDelete
Happy Easter, all! xx
So many thoughts, so little comprehension.ReplyDelete
Wow - I didn't even think about writing about the egg LOL! I was so taken with the little painting...ReplyDelete
Ah....the egg: Symbol of the season and creation of life! Yum!ReplyDelete
I'll try and get something up by tomorrow afternoon. If not, it will be on Tuesday morning.ReplyDelete
I enjoy writing for Magpie. Easter egg is far from my cultural experience, but I'll make something out of it - as willow says it's upto my muse what I make of the prompt ...ReplyDelete
As always enjoyed writing a poem for Magpie Tales.ReplyDelete
alright, i am in the game...ReplyDelete
off to visit...
What a delightful prompt - really had me wondering for a while thereReplyDelete
I made it on time for this one!ReplyDelete
Commenting after linking! Happy magpie day.ReplyDelete
Hope I connected correctly ...... Have a lovely day, dear Willow.ReplyDelete
I'm a bit late getting this one done (Tuesday is almost over, for me), but it's up!ReplyDelete
It's too late to be part of it all but it was a pretty egg.ReplyDelete
I absolutely loved reading the tales inspired.ReplyDelete
What an awesome idea. Maybe next year,when I feel more confident to participate, I'd love to.
Right now, all the talent I viewed was much too intimidating.
Extremely talented people out here. WOW.
