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.
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’. Please submit poems, writings and photos to firstname.lastname@example.org with Stuff it Poem, Stuff it paragraph or Stuff it Photo in the subject line.
Submissions must be received by 4:00pm eastern time by the Monday before the Stuff it Tuesday.
All submissions will be used. Look below for this weeks Stuff it.
Time for this weeks Stuff it Tuesday Collaboration. This one is a little more challenging!
He awoke to the dripping sounds of the rain. He slowly stirred and turned over to lay on his stomach and peered out the raggedy opening of the window in his hut. It had been two weeks now that he had been staying in this filthy, wet hut. As he stared off into the rainy sky in wonderment of the journey that had led him here.
The mud squishing between his toes
The villagers and grass huts lined in rows
He looked back
A foreigner in a foreign land
His destruction led by his own people’s hand.
