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…
….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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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!!!
