Go forth, and write! - a WWBH prompt post

Hi folks!

This weeks Writer Wednesday blog hop is in the safe hands of Tena Carr, who is talking a little about deadlines and missing them. I'm sure she didn't see my IWSG post before hand ...

Are you on the hop?

If any of you have kids in school you've probably had to deal with the Science Fair. I swear every school does them, every year.

Since we had been homeschooling our son for a few years, previous to moving to Arizona and putting him into the school system here, we hadn't had to deal with the whole Science Fair mess (and believe me it can be a royal mess). Once again, like last year, we're hitting that last minute mark and rushing to get everything done and ready to go -- You know what I mean - late night, early morning, throwing it all together.

And wouldn't you know the project was due yesterday, the day I should have been putting together this week blog hop... Not much of an excuse considering the project was due in the morning and I had all day to throw something together, but then I spent the whole rest of the day going on little sleep and a husband who had 2 doctors appointments and had also decided that we should spend the day out (between appointments and picking up our son) doing shopping and other errands.....

And.... Ohhh dear, I'm going on and on, and you guys are wanting to know about this week's Hop.

Right, getting back on track... But first, real quick (I promise), we are starting up our blog hop "Featured Writer" button again. Each month a random winner is chosen and a button is created (or you can create your own) and featured on our blogs (Leanne, Heather, and myself; There is also Debb who is on a brief sabbatical who might also put up the monthly "Featured Writer" button). Also, a short blurb will be written in our 'beginning of the month' Hop. 

So how does the Featured Writer thing work? Each time you submit a story, after submitting 3, your name goes into a "digital" hat each month. A random winner is chosen from that "hat" to be our Featured Writer... this month it's Scott Taylor


So why not head on over and check out his blog (just make sure you return back here for the blog hop). Scott is one of our regular submitees (ok I'm not sure if there is such a word or if I'm even closing to spelling correctly). He was our top writer (number of submissions for 2014, and I think maybe 2013). For the longest time he was well known, here, for his Cap't Monkey & Tooele Boy short stories (I think he's taken a bit of a break from the Capt Monkey stories, but not from writing short stories). 

And, of course, last week's entries:

All-righty, so, on to this week's hop. Since I've already put in so much preliminary info into this blog I won't go into all the rules - You can view them on the WWBH page. 

  • 500 words (give or take)
  • must include the 2 photos; or the photo and the 5 words must be prominent (bolded) in your story, Please give proper credit (don't steal/share pics as your own)
  • while not required a brief mention of the blog hop would be much appreciated... 

The 5 Words to be used this week are:
And the photo the story must be about:
