WRITER’S LINKS: “My Imaginary Life”

Hello Islanders!

It’s Tuesday, 12:01 AM on the U.S. east coast. As promised, here is the post to which you can submit your links in the comments section. PLEASE NOTE: your very first link will be held for approval, and will not show up immediately. This is not to censor anyone’s writing, you write it and post it on your blog — and you are free to post the link here on the island. Your initial contribution will be moderated solely to prevent flotsam and jetsam (SPAM) from floating up and littering the beaches.

To place your link, click on ‘comment’, and place your link as a ‘comment’. Remember, only post the link to your work here, and please make certain your link is accurate. The piece you’ve written should be posted on your personal blog… you’re pros and familiar with all this, I’m just being diligent.

If you want to read your fellow islanders’ contributions to this week’s prompt, “My Imaginary Life”, just go to ‘comments’ — and from there you can explore the island.

Well, I’m thrilled you’ve come. Writers Island is now your island. Please feel free to let us all know what you want and need on the island to make it a nurturing experience. Your suggestions will be submitted to the island community for consideration.

Now, find yourself a comfortable place to settle in, there is food and drink for everyone — the kind that nourishes your spirit. The weather is always beautiful here on the island, and the breezes are aways cool… so please, relax, express yourself, and let these cool breezes carry your words. WELCOME fellow islanders! 😉

    In the constant quest to obfuscate who I am not, I humbly present my brief would be bio.

  3. Here’s my first contribution. I’m looking forward to watching this grow.

    Robin — I’m looking forward to people discovering this island, and coming ashore. Thank you for the sentiment.

  5. Et Voila! Arabian nights at Paris Parfait. http://parisparfait.typepad.com/paris_parfait/2007/09/post.html
    Mabrouk for the success of your new site!

  6. I have no special prose link for today, but I wanted to thank you, Rob, for putting up this site, especially with Poetry Thursday ending.
    Today is a wonderful day for new beginnings. Last year I posted a serious piece because I live in one of the 9-11 areas. This year I’m relishing times from a few days ago and choosing not to impose any constraints on myself. Thinking of an imaginary life is a bit much for me now, but I like the prompt and will file it away for the future!

    I look forward to exploring the links another time when I’m not plagued by insomnia.


  7. If you imagine it, it will happen. Imagine!
