Happy WWBH Day everyone!

Hello to all! It's Wednesday again, can you believe it! I'm sure we're skipping some days you know, the week just rolls around to quickly for my liking :-)

Are you on the hop?


In this weeks edition of the Writer Wednesday Blog Hop it is my great pleasure to introduce the newest member of our co-hosting team, Debb Stanton, who is blogging over at Stanton Sunshine. Welcome Debb!!!!!
As a relative newcomer myself I know how nervous she must be feeling, but I also know the excitement is enough to break through all that. 

Please join me in welcoming her to the fold, and make sure you check out the rest of her blog too.

So Debb, it's over to you ...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Guess what? I have very recently been honored with an invitation to be a co-hostess for the Writer Wednesday Blog Hop. I join my writing heroes Heather, Leanne and Tena with thanks and high-voltage anticipation. I make my debut in this post and hope there won't be a lot of egg or tomato throwing. :)

For those of you who are new to the Writer Wednesday Blog Hop, and for my readers (those who have a blog, AND those who do not) who are looking to have some fun and get out of writer's block at the same time, here is a very good vehicle!
Join us as we conjure up stories that match the prompts given. The more participants, the merrier! We are a small community that builds each other up and supports one another in our artistic endeavors.
You can join us whenever you want and do not have to commit to writing every week (although yes, we hope your stories show up often).

Here are the stories from last week's prompt:

Timmy's Adventure by Scott Taylor 
One Small Leap For Mark by Tony Roberts  
Silence by Leanne Sype 
Surviving The Night by Heather Musk  
Hard Work by Debb Stanton   

Oh yes; there are, of course, a few little rules. The rules are as follows:

1) Try to keep your word count down to around 500 – no worries, we’re not counting. Just try to keep from getting too lengthy.
2) You must use the two pictures OR the one picture and five words in your story (depending on what the host decides to use)
3) Link your story up using linky tool below. Stories submitted will be announced in next week’s blog hop kick-off
4) This is most important… Have fun with this and let those creative juices flow.  

Sooooooo...here's my very first prompts that I give to my writing family:

Here are your five words:     river, circus, ravioli, hazard, weather

It's that time again, WWBH time!!!

Today it's Tena's turn to take charge of the Writer Wednesday blog hop. Be sure to check out the wonderful stories from last week, and you never know, maybe you'll be inspired to take part this week!


**************************************************

What Day Is It?   What Day Is It?   Nope not that day *Hee Hee*....  It's
20140324-094933.jpg
Once a week we (LeAnne, Heather, and myself) will be bringing you the Writer Wednesday Blog Hop.   This weekly hop will play out one of two ways
1) 1 picture/5 words
2) 2 pictures
The rules are as follows:
1) Try to keep your word count down to around 500 - no worries, we're not counting. Just try to keep from getting to lengthy.
2) You must use the 2 pictures OR the 1 picture/5 words in your story (depending on what the host decides to use - I'll be revealing mine in just a bit, I promise).
3) Link your story up using linky tool below. Stories submited will be announced in next week's blog hop kick-off
4) This is most important... Have fun with this and let those creativejuices flow
This week I thought I'd go with the two picture theme, but first let's look at stories from last week's Blog Hop
Now She Understood by Deb Stanton 
So Long Hank by Tony Roberts
The Suspicious Sculpture by Scott Taylor
King of the Bean by LeAnne Sype
Appear/Disappear by HJ Musk
Now, that you've had an opportunity to peruse (and hopefully enjoy) last week's stories, on to this week.   I'm going to stay in keeping with Heather and LeAnne's theme of the "2 pictures".   Remember they both must be used in your story and your story must be kept to the 500 word minimum - A few words over is okay but Please no 1000 word stories.
Your two pictures are:
0317165828
121312114109
When your done with your story be and sure and link to the linkzy frog below.  You can always contact the host (where your reading this blog hop kick-off) for assistance if your having trouble or leave them a comment with url to your story and they'll get you entered in.

Friday Celebrations 

It's Friday, which means time to celebrate something with VikLit at Scribblings of an Aspiring Author and all the lovelies currently on her linky list.

It can be anything you like, as small or significant as you like. Everything counts, and it all helps to spread the joy of whatever we've all been up to.
