Weekly Writing Collaboration Challenge with the Mrs. For writers, poets and photographers…come on I know you have the ‘write’ stuff!

Image

So I have come up with a weekly collaboration idea!  I challenge you as writers and poets to “stuff” my opening and closing paragraphs with a written paragraph of no more than 5 sentences or a poetry verse of 6 lines that would fit as the “stuffing” of the story.

But don’t do this…

Image

….take your time and think about it so you have a lead in and a lead out of your paragraph or verse so that I can link it all together.  I will also link each contribution to your blog so we can all showcase what we have to offer and take a peek at the submissions we love.

Image

Keep it true to your style and flare but remember nothing over a PG rating please.  

I will also add 4 photographs into the ‘storetry’ (my new word for part story, part poetry, aren’t I clever?)  So please submit your photos to the relevant issue of the week and I will choose the ones that are best suited to the final ‘storetry’.

I will publish the results on Tuesdays by 2:00pm (my time)  Please submit entries to writingsofamrs@outlook.com with Write Stuff and what kind of submission it is ex. Write Stuff Photo, Write Stuff Poem, Write Stuff Paragraph in the subject box.  Don’t forget to include your blog address or I won’t be able to link your submission back to you!

If there are too many submissions I will make multiple ‘storetrys’.

This weeks opening is:

I have so many fond memories of days at the beach, packing up the car and spending days in the sun.  I love being surrounded by the sand, water and the warm wind.  But let me tell you I have many a story about my times at the beach!

And the closing:

So you see why the beach is such a wonderful place,

Filled with memories that I would never replace.

Moments in time where the sun beams dance

Times of my life,

When I took a chance.

NOW STUFF IT PEOPLE!!!

        😀 the cartoon guy was actually pretty accurate…instead of paper it was a vicious cycle of highlighted text, delete, start again.

    Ooooh I so want to stuff! I’m going to roll it around it my head for a while………………..

    (where are you, I’m in London UK, trying to figure the timing out)

    I love your blog and I am excited to participate in this collaboration. Now I need to reboot my brain from my hectic day to see what I can come up with:)

      Great! I’m glad you are participating and thank you for your kind words. Welcome to my little space in the blogging world.
      No rush for the piece, by Sunday is preferable for me but any time is fine.
      Continued success.
