No magpie tales for me this week, head cold and NaNoWriMo ar doing me in.
Oh, sorry, Nathalie. We'll miss you. Feel better soon. Good luck with the writing!

Gosh, don't know why but I was so not inspired or could not find a thing to write on the last 2 Magpie's, which is sad really because I was in it for 12 consecutive weeks. I hope to be back on it with this one! Cheers...
You just never know what an image will do to your poet's brain.Thanks for this one.
Thank you for posting early, Willow. I can go to bed at a civilised time tonight.
Short and sweet from me this week. I am taking part in Nanowrimo at the moment and think I must subconsciously be conserving my words! :-)Thanks as always for posting the Magpies.
Nice image, Willow, mine is a little sad and maybe a bit long this week, written while my kids doing their homework.
I'm confused....clear your URL...what does that mean?
Annell, for some reason, Mr. Linky likes to save your URL from the previous week. Just delete it, before you add your new one, or your readers will be directed to last week's post.
Thank-you Willow. I love the photo and can't wait to see what others have come up with.: )
I'm like Annell, a bit confused but now will check it through to see if I need to do anyting about my link. Thanks.
All I'm saying is just make sure you paste your current post's URL into the Linky widget each week. Sorry, I didn't mean to confuse! :^)
Great prompt, love it!!
Willow! I LOVE this picture. Make me pick... necklace? Or creepy lizard-king thingy?
I seem to finally be back on the Magpie saddle! I almost missed Mag #39 but I just but it up so for those who are interested in a bit of flash fiction you can check it out! http://sandra-and-i.blogspot.com/2010/11/simple-farce.htmlThank you willow for yet another wonderful picture!
Okay here is this weeks post and it came so easy this week. I have so much floating around in my brain. Back to NaNo...
Willow, I haven't posted yet but I've removed my 'Six Days' post about five times from the Mr Linky thing, and it's still there. I couldn't get rid of it last week either. When I click on the space there's a little drop down list of my stuff too, and I can't get rid of that either.Hugs, Sue :)
Submitted my link! :) This is my first time here. After seeing the image, I felt compelled to write something.http://thebeatofmydrum.com/2010/11/11/a-necklace-from-my-darling/
This was a hard one, because I kept thinking of that movie about the kid and karate and Jackie Chan and Jet Li. :/But I gave it my best shot, and even tried for a bit of humor.
Hmm... I got a great one about a necklace... debating, debating...
I'm on board and making the rounds.
Oh, you fiend, what have you done>
This week hurt...
I looked this up before riding into the spa today and figured I would never come up with a post for it. But I did. Love these little challenges.
Love the necklacebut a difficult prompt for me
Yes, quite a taxing prompt. What was it to be, the necklace or the medallion?
Hi Willow.A very nice picture promt. Thanks.
Thanks Magpie! I have written an ACROSTIC POEM :)
This is what I felt when I saw the prompt..Beautiful picture..Thank you very much.
Don't know how I managed this one..oh, well...thanks, always!!
Here it is!
Even with clear boxes, Mr Linky doesn't work for me! Another attempt is HERE
I had a little trouble linking, but it's cause I was doing something wrong. I'm in now and off to read some magpies.
Here's my take on that ornament: http://strummedwords.blogspot.com/2010/11/magpie-tales-monkey-king.html
Giving it a short go this week, so I can try to read and comment on them all......! Fabulous creativity here!
Been under the weather this week but I've given it a shot.
Had a bit of a challenge with this one, but finally... another short section of Jack's Gremlins. Hope everyone enjoys it.
Yes, a challenging prompt this week. Thank you.
Hope I'm not flying in the face of Mag-protocol, but I had a bit of a topsy-turvy week, so am posting last week's Magpie tale now...This weeks will follow shortly...
...and now for the real Magpie 40 post!
lovely prompt.got an entry in.Happy Reading,xxx
It was hard but it's finally up!
Mine's posted. Now I can read the other entries.
'Mythic' moves me
Wow, this image sang to me of a sad woman. Don't know why.. Funny , where images take usWysteria
Being a stubborn moo, I tried Mr Linky yet again, and discovered what the bip was. Now he works!
why do we need to renter our URL each week?? Or was it just this week???
hello hello..itz great to be back at magpie! disturbing deuce
I put my 'Intro' up earlier in the week, as I am always hard-pressed to meet the time limits and by then most people have done with reading.Thank you for the prompt. It has been very productive.
I wrote a quickie for this one. JT
Another wonderful prompt Willow...took me a while to post, but i finally made it...hope everyone has an awesome Monday! :-)
I might post again after a long absence; it is fun to see what the image evokes in different folks!
this one was very challenging, but fun. And, once again a chance for me to learn...
I really loved this prompt although I wondered what prompted you to select this prompt.
Yeesh! Consistently over 100 entries... full-time job going through these. ;)Twice a week? Might have to go to bi-weekly to keep up!
The Magpie challenge almost alwaysgets over 100 responses, in just oneweek; gosh--you seem to have adedicated flock of poets who feelhonored to be painted black, andput on a list for a kind of imaginaryChapbook, that is dynamic andeverchanging. I only write forone other poetry challenge site,and it rarely gets 24 responses.Just your format and personalityone would assume, Miss Willow.Magpies are really intelligentbirds, you see, can learn morewords than minis or parrots even,do tricks, write poetry.
Whoa...I surprised myself with this one. When I saw that picture, something happened and the poem poured out of me...thanks for this interesting exercise. Really enjoyed reading all the different poems and stories.
It's a beautiful piece, Willow, and I enjoyed writing about it!
