“19 posts! NINETEEN, MEL!”
I texted this nerd message to Mel at the closing of our first ever Ketchup With Us link-up! We couldn’t have been happier about it. You guys were awesome and we truly loved reading every single one of your entries. But now we know what it feels like to be the jerks who have to (randomly!) select ONE post to feature in each link-up. Yes, I said random. Never mind the fact that this post mentions goat’s milk … which brings me to cheese … which … wait, where was I?
So, our esteemed Ketchup With Us Featured Writer for today is …
What’s that? You’ve never even heard of the Ketchup With Us link-up? (To veterans) Okay, will those of you already in the know please step to the back so we can get the others up to speed? Thank you. Feel free to take out your independent novels and read a few minutes. (To rookies) Hello, new friends. For a quick, three-minute Cliff’s Notes version of what’s happening, click here. 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. Please respond in 57 WORDS OR LESS in the form of 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 Writer who poured it all out for us in the previous link-up.
The Rules of Play … plus a few other friendly suggestions:
- Follow us on Twitter (Mel/Michele) and Facebook (Mel /Michele)
- Post ‘Ketchup With Us’ button (below) in the body of your post.
- Link your entry’s URL (not your blog URL) to the linky at the bottom of one of our posts.
- Tweet us your post with the hashtag #KetchupWithUs so we can RT your ketchup-y self.
- Please turn off your captcha for commenting. It makes people angry. I won’t say who.
Attention! ¡Atención! Achtung!
Gratuitous ODNT plug – Today’s prompt reminds me of a post I wrote a while back entitled Let’s Embarrass Me. Topic: Famous Crushes. In case that’s at all relevant.
‘KETCHUP WITH US’ – Prompt#2
