JOP - Friday Linky Party - Jumping Off Places
Just 'jump right in!' (when it comes to our writing, that is!) Our linky party is continuing!! This is week 5! You can still join the fun! Write something cute, sad, inspiring, scary, or awesome on your blog! Just WRITE something! That's what this is all about! Practicing our skills! NEW: Also,introducing a new continuing post, starting tomorrow: My new column will post on Saturdays. It's called Common Writing Errors. I'm sure that if you are like me, you struggle with some English grammar. I don't have all the answers, but will promise to do my research. It ought to be fun and informative! Review of our party works: 1) First Lines provided here (for next week--Last week's post is the basis for today's links.) 2) Write a post on your blog anytime next week using the first line of your choice. It doesn't have to be long, just a few thoughts or a paragraph. Anything. Who knows, it could become a story! 3) OUR PARTY IS A LITTLE DIFFERENT! Take your time--One Week--then come back next Friday and link in with the URL of your post! (Not just your blog address, please.) 4) On Fridays we'll read each other's work and Enjoy a creative moment! If you have written something for this week, please drop down to the link portion of this post and add your name and your URL. Then everyone who visits will be able to come read your creativeness! First Lines for Next Week --Week FIVE-- 1) "How near are the horsemen right now?" 2) It was like a scene from On Golden Pond, with lunes on the pond and the serene surroundings. 3) Chatter was everywhere around me, at the next table, over the counter, and walking past my table. 4) The coupon fluttered out of her hand and landed among a sea of legs. 5) Smoke filled the room like a cloudy day. Happy CREATIVE writing! Don't forget to come back and link in on Friday!
