Hear Ye! Hear Ye! It’s Here (Ye) … our very first Link-Up!
Mel at According to Mags and I have paired up to bring you some shenanigans of the ketchup variety. And … if you’re staring at the screen wondering “What in the WORLD is this lunatic talking about?” … click here for a three-minute, Cliff’s Notes version of what’s happening all around you. Now, before we proceed any further, I must go over the official rules of this assignment. (Puts on reading glasses, clears throat and bangs gavel. Mel makes a note to hide obnoxious gavel before the next post.)
On the 1st and 15th of each month — (loses concentration to interruption) You. Yes, you, madam. In the back. Please put your hand down. We haven’t even started. … What? Well, I’m sure Mel brought her own Cadbury Mini-Eggs. … Please calm down, madam. Yes, it is wonderful that you’re her “Number One Fan” but I think she’ll just stick to eating the ones she brought from home. (Whispers to security, “Could someone please get this nut job outta here? She’s creeping out the regulars.”) Okay. Now, where was I?
On the 1st and 15th of each month, Mel and I will post the same picture or video with a writing prompt on our blogs. We ask you to respond in 57 words or less. It can be a story, a poem, a song you wrote in the shower, a cat food jingle or whatever strikes your fancy. All we seek is creativity. Each week, we’ll post a Featured Blogger who poured it all out for us in the previous link-up.
Here’s how you play:
‘KETCHUP WITH US’ – Prompt#1
