Sunday Scribbling - sorry -- no scribble this week!

sorry -- no scribble this week!
Sorry, folks. Meg and I are both out of town this weekend and will not be able to put up links -- I think this is the first time in 80 weeks that we've both been traveling on the same weekend! We will be back next week with a great prompt. Hope you all have a fabulous weekend and we'll see you soon!


Ohhh Nooooo ... shock horror, no prompt for the week, I can hear the groaning from writers around the globe.

The apology, away this week, don’t the keepers of SS realise what a bunch of devotees we are who wait patiently, with a hint of desperation for a few meagre words to be thrown at us? Lined up like old roosters, chooks and spring chickens at the door of the hen house salivating for a mere morsel … don't they realise their impact ?

Are we so desperate for inspiration, motivation or is this a game, a hobby a pastime that allows us the ability to have words lunging out of our grey matter onto the screens in front of us and then the fulfilling a scribes curiosity as we peek into the thoughts of others – aren’t these girls aware of the impact they have on our lives?

Nah obviously not!

Not to worry here’s to them, relishing their time, eighty weeks sounds like AWOL is permitted. For me I’m carrying on regardless, pounding the keyboard, posting to the blog in the hope that someone joins me and we show the gals how much they’re sorely missed!

Ahhh .... that's better!!!

I will join you but on Saturday.......small boy sick today. Well put....I like the henhouse analogy.

Redness said...

Yay Jo ... c'mon down! Hope your boy is well soon ;~)

I love your rebel spirit! Sunday Scribblings is about more than a prompt. It is a community of creativity, where we all come together to share and support one another. Prompt or no prompt this week, we should all post a link to something we wrote and continue the weekend ritual just the same. Count me in, Redness!

Redness said...

Yay Herb, you're the Man! The plea from your family swayed my decision to rebel ;~))

Herb Urban said...

Redness, you rock! Mine is up, though you already read it ;-)

I love the rebel spirit! Keep it up!!!

Love your suggestion RED! I will def. participate later today or tomorrow. You are right 80 posts allows them their well deserved break. I think more than desperate for motivation, this IS a hobby. It is also our link to a community with the same interest. great post :)

Though new to the blog, I agree with you one hundred percent. I am already addicted and was disappointed too.

Still laughing! The descriptions are apt and the words carry weight! Love it!

I love me a good non-conformist. And with no small trace of irony, I've jumped on the non-conformist bandwagon.

Patois said...

You red-headed radical, you! I did it, to, with "sorry" as the prompt.

I sort of love this community and I was saddened by that non-prompt. Reading your post makes me feel better. So glad know all of you!

I posted mine too!

Well....I wouldn't say I wait patiently, but your point is well taken. I joined the rebels too, ha ha!

Gill said...

That's the spirit!

Just Jen said...

You are so right! I do sit and wait for their prompt in hopes to make my screen alive! LOL
They do have power over me. Ok, I wrote too, couldn't help it!

Marie said...

Nice job...you've got us lined up! Yes, it is a devotion to a love of words both writing them and reading them. It's fun to see the different takes on one simple word or idea.

This was my first SS and even though there wasn't (and with much persistence and determination turned to be one after all) a prompt, I found it to be a great way to improve upon my writing. I remember as a kid in school I would get frustrated when the teacher would give us a prompt to begin our writing, but the end result always wound up surprising me. I am glad that there are sites out here to keep those creative juices flowing ;o)
