Hi everyone. I've been so sentimental these days that I wanted to do something different for TaT this week. I thought I'd make something humorous out of a maudlin prompt :D

Looking forward to reading everyone else's stories.

Hiya friends. How are you all? I am happy to see so many posts this week. Hope to have more during the contest. I have read each and every story linked above and have commented in there too. I would encourage all of you to do the same. Please read others' work too, so that the encouragement and learning remains throughout. Best of Luck..

Story Teller May 4, 2009 at 2:15 PM  

And yes, I have given points to all the entries this week. The following two entries disqualifies:

Telebound: (from) http://irongirltraveling.blogspot.com/
Did not write a story and just linked his/her blog. The link will be removed from Mr. Linky above.

Angela McCoy: (from) http://www.momsgreatescape.blogspot.com/
wrote a wonderful poem on Silence. I would encourage all of you to read that too. I have not removed the link from here; however she could not earn any point as because the prompt was to write a Story, not a poem.

To all others:
I would like to request you to link only your particular Entry, and not the whole Blog here. Please remember that during the contest, such flaws will not be overlooked, and stories that do not obey the contest rules will be disqualified...

Wishing all of you luck for the forthcoming contest :)

G'Day Storyteller,
Thanks for the feedback. I don't know how to do links to only the current story, I'm not real good on the puter. But I do love this prompt site.

Story Teller May 6, 2009 at 12:08 AM
