Hello Again 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. Remember, only post the link to your work here — as a ‘comment’, and please make certain your link is accurate.

If you’re new, we’re thrilled you’ve come — all the details of ‘How To Come Ashore’ are posted in the sidebar. If you’ve returned, we all welcome you back!

Writers Island is 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. Then later, take a walk on the beach, and read your fellow islanders’ contributions to this week’s prompt, “The Gift”.

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.

ENJOY — fellow islanders!  😉

    I didn’t get a chance to write along with the prompt but here’s a poem I wrote a few weeks ago. I look forward to reading yours.

  22. I started writing a political post that veered a little off topic, but then I came up with this:


    If anyone has any interest in reading my semi on-topic post about Hollywood Fred Thompson, you can find it here.

    Greetings Islanders –

    We enjoyed another nice turn out for our Tuesday beach party.

    I hope we all continue to mingle and share our thoughts about “The Gift”. It was very interesting seeing the variety of ‘takes’ we came up with for this prompt.

    Well my fellow beachcombers, until Saturday brings another mystery to explore for next Tuesday’s sandy soirée — party on… 😉

  24. Those who have wordpress or other blogs can comment on bloggers by choosing the other option from the three options given.

    You can put your name and URL in the two boxes provided.

    One can go anonymous too but please put your name if you choose that option. So that we can get back to you!

    You can always experiment on my blog!!


  25. This weeks prompt had my mind jump back imediately to
    when my son Michael brought me flowers for the first time

    here’s what I wrote:

    Ahoy –

    Some of our fellow islanders thought that Tuesday, 12:01 AM, U.S. East Coast Time was a ‘deadline’ for posting your links. That is incorrect. It is not a ‘deadline’, it is simply the time that the ‘link post’ opens.

    You can place your link anytime after it opens. The closer to the opening of the ‘link post’ that you place your link, the better chance you provide for more of your fellow islanders to visit you.

    Trust that clears up any confusion. 😉

  27. A little late to the party, but I’ve got a post up for this prompt now.
