After some time away and a fresh return Writings of a Mrs now has a new look and some exciting new ideas.

I’m looking for guest bloggers to feature once weekly.

For those of you interested you will also see the return of ‘The Storetry’.  I would like to have at least two more installments before releasing the first ‘Storetry’ Collaboration eBook!

I will also be  continuing and showcasing Friday’s Featured Poet as well.

If any of the above interests you please see the tabs listed at the top of my main page for more information.

Please feel free to share your thoughts with me.

What do you think of the new look?

Get published! All submissions included! This weeks Storetry Tuesday for poets and writers!

Just a reminder to those that are interested or those who would like to join for the first time please submit your contributions to this weeks ‘storetry’ to writingsofamrs@outlook.com.  In the subject line please include Stuff it Poem or Stuff it Paragraph.  All submissions will be included along with being published in a free e book that I will be writing with your contribution, name and blog address included in the same format as the ‘storetry’ is displayed on my blog. Please submit by Monday June 17th by 6pm Eastern Time.

This is a personal challenge and collaboration idea.  You may participate as often as you like but only one submission per week.  Please keep submission PG rated.  Be sure that your contribution stays true to your style of writing to showcase yourself and lead people to your blog and that it can flow between other peoples submissions as well which will be part of the challenge for you.  Your part is to fill the middle of the story that I have started and finished with either one paragraph of roughly 5 sentences or 1 poetry verse of 5 lines.  My challenge then becomes attempting to make it all flow as I will use and combine all of the submissions to create a ‘storetry’, part story, part poem.

For more information take a look at the Tab on my Home page.  There you will find the break down and previous ‘Storetries’ This will be the 7th installment. I will only be doing 10! So please participate!

‘Storetry’ #5 Part Story/Part Poetry. Collaboration/Challenge for poets and writers, join us and get published!!

I would like to thank everyone for their submissions and great pieces of writing both prose and poem and the wonderful photographs submitted!

I ask people to submit  a paragraph or a poem verse to fit into an opening paragraph and closing poetry verse that I supply.  I ask for people to contribute the ‘stuffing’ of the story, the middle with a short paragraph OR a poetry verse.  I then take all of the submission both prose and poem and try to add it all into the middle to make up at Storetry (part story part poetry) that flows nicely into a ‘Storetry’ (part story ‘stor’ and part poetry ‘etry’) I use all submission that are supplied to me as long as they pertain to the weeks opening and closing.  I will be publishing a free eBook that will include all of the ‘Storetry’s’ along with everyone’s submissions and blog addresses.  So by participating you will become ‘published’!  You can find next weeks ‘Storetry’ info posted on my home page in the Stuff It Collaboration for Everyone Tab by tomorrow morning.

To help with reading, I have included each persons blog address below their submission, you can click on the link to check out more of their work if it interests you.

The Carnival

The place was crowded with people.  The smell of hot buttery popcorn enticed my nose.  The sounds of people and couples laughing and enjoying the hot summer evening danced on the air.  Flashing lights and rides whipping by the night skyline flashed before my eyes.  It was the night of the Summer Solstice Carnival, my favorite night of the year.
