Storytime



Happy Sunday!  I hope you are all having a nice weekend!

I'm popping in to tell you about our linky party.  It's happening this Thursday, August 23.

We are going to be telling stories!

Or rather our pictures are going to be telling stories!

You've heard "a picture has a thousand words" and "every picture tells a story", well, let's test these old sayings!

I will give you the beginning of a story, you will finish it with a picture.  Just a picture, no words, no tags, no hints when you post your picture, you want to let others try to guess the ending to the story.  Then we will have a big reveal when you can write your ending and see who had the best guess!

I will give you the beginning of the story at the end of this post so you can create your ending.  On Thursday I will put the linky up at the end of my post where you can link your photo and look at the others.

Are you game?

Use your imagination, be creative, think outside the box!  Draw or paint a picture, capture a real situation, create a still life, re-create a situation!  There are no rules!  (except keep it clean! it's a PG blog and I will be the linky police!)

Be sure to comment (nicely and often! it's a party after all!) on the linky photo next to yours and any other that catches your eye and check back often to see new ones as they come in!

Here is the beginning of your story-

"The sun rose slowly, as if it wasn't sure it was worth the effort.  Morning is wonderful.  The only drawback is it comes at such an inconvenient time of day.  Well, at least it's a new day with no mistakes in it yet.  So she slowly stood up because you're never fully awake till you stand up."

OK, your turn!

I can't wait to see how you finish this!

See you on Thursday!
