Welcome to Stuff It Tuesdays: The Storetry Collaboration Challenge
I’d like to thank everyone for the fabulous contributions. I really enjoy reading all of the submissions and putting the ‘Storetry’ (a word that I created, part story, part poetry) together. I only wish I had more time to spend on it!
This is my sevnth installment of the Stuff It Tuesday ‘Storetry’ Collaboration Challenge. Continue reading
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.
Check out the past 3 weeks here!
Welcome to our first Stuff it Tuesday Collaboration! It was fun to see all of the writing and poems that people came up with and even more fun trying to make it into a fluid ‘storetry’. Quite the challenge. I had all of the entries laid out on my floor last night along with a glass of wine. There are so many talented people in our Word Press community.
I decided to add each persons blog link underneath their entry. This seemed to be the best way to keep track of each entry, so as you read, read past the links and then you can go back and check out people’s blogs when you have finished the ‘storetry’. I want to give a shout out to Valerie. She missed the deadline but also submitted this image so I included. I apologize for having to refuse some submissions. I had to set a time line so that I had time to put this all together. I hope you all understand and that you will contribute to next weeks ‘storetry’ which you will find at the end of this weeks collaboration.
I really hope you enjoy the collaboration.
Alright, enough from me. Happy reading.
A day at the beach with Word Press
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!
