50,000 Views in 5 months

ImageAfter a quiet summer of little blogging and in 5 months total, I’ve hit 50,000 views on my blog!

Thank you so much for all of your support and encouragement!

When I started my blog I had no idea what to expect or even any idea what to write about.  The journey has evolved on it’s own and I’m so amazed that even one of you actually wants to read my poetry and posts so thank you so much for helping me build confidence in my writing.  There is much more to come I assure you!

I know over the summer my Pay Day Thursdays were interrupted along with the weekly ‘Storetries’ but they will return in October for those of you that are wondering and interested!

Also, the ads that keep popping up at the end of my posts are not there by my choice, Word Press just decides to put them where they want…for now.

THANK YOU SO MUCH, TODAY IS A HAPPY DAY FOR ME!!

Week #4 info Weekly Stuff it ‘Storetry’ Challenge, for poets and writers! Come and Join Us!

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 writingsofamrs@outlook.com 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!

Opening:

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.

 

 

Closing :

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.

Check out the past 3 weeks here!
