Prompt #1 for 2010 – Messages

Welcome to the re-opening of Writer’s Island. After being away from these shores for a bit more than a year — we’re back… ready to “beach parteeee” and write to our heart’s content!

Remember, new prompt(s) every Saturday, and to make it easy this time around, when what you’ve written is ready to read by the other Islanders, just post your link right here at the bottom of this post — no waiting, no looking for a different place to post your link, and you can leave a comment as a part of your posted link. You can now also reply directly to any other comment.

••> The first official new prompt is: MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE… pretend you found a bottle washed up on the beach here at Writer’s Island. tell us in your words (poem, prose, flash fiction) about this message.

••> A special bonus prompt for this new beginning of Writer’s Island is for former members of the now inactive Read Write Poem site. In your words (poem, prose, flash fiction) write a GOODBYE MESSAGE TO RWP.

You respond to either, or both prompts — or just leave a comment to say hi! Welcome back to the the Island. Pass me some pineapple please, go have yourself a nice cool drink of choice, and let’s have some fun!!! 😉

    This is sort of both, and more. .. and less 🙂

    I’m so glad you went through with restarting this. I was sad to see RWP die just two months after I got there.

      • Thanks for the welcome, Rob. Sadly, proof-reading is more my talent than writing! I’ve just been reading AS Byatt’s The Children’s Book – a veritable tour de force, but my metaphorical correcting pen was hard at work!

  18. Ahoy matie! Just washed upon the shore. Looking for some poetic treasures. Argh!!

    Here is my poem called: “The Message is the Bottle” and an added bonus poem today: “The Loyalty Oath and the Oil to Loathe.”

    Thanks Captain Rob!

    Rob, I am so excited to see WI. Did you know that the original site was one of the reasons Whitesnake and I met and fell in love? I’ll be back to post my contribution later and I’ll let WS know you are back.

    • writersisland

      You are kidding KB!? Never ever knew that — WOW… 🙂 Love must have been in those balmy tropical breezes here on the Island!

  26. Taking the advice of a couple of good writing friends, I have revised, edited and reposted my Message poem here: http://vivinfrance.wordpress.com

  27. Thank you for keeping the poetry motorized!

    I’m a day late, but then again my bottle has a time machine…

  28. congrats on the first prompt, guys!!!!

    here’s my attempt: dare

    • I should like to have read it;, but lack of password prevented it. I am intrigued that you think there is a need for a password – is it for copyright reasons/fear of spam of what?
      Regards,
      ViV

      • hi, viv! the instructions with my poem encourage people to email me for the password (my email address is in the post, too) as i’m most happy to share it.

      • Yes, Carolee, I read that, but the kerfuffle to get a password, use it etc, put me off. Today my email came back because the address was incomplete (eg gmail.com, or what?) But I’m not a quitter, so please may I have your password?
        ViV
        http://wordpress.com

      • yup. many readers consider a kerfuffle and i lose them. and i’m fine with that.

        the reasons i do it are important enough that it’s a risk i take.

        happy to explain when you email me. yes, it’s gmail.com. do try again.

  29. I am new to this site, and look forward to writing with you all. Here is my attempt, Message in a Bottle:

    • oh, donald, i had no idea what to expect when i went to your poem with that title. 🙂 thank goodness it was mild. sorry you were surprised by RWP’s end. glad you’re visiting the island.

      • The title to my poems never reflect the truth of content. I figured the “Summer Girl” poem was enough. You know that discretion is the better part of valor. By the way, loved the tat.

  44. Opps, I meant “July Girl”.

  45. Hi. I just added a couple of non-prompt related poems to my blog, and realized they displaced my poem for this prompt from the front page (can you say rooooooookie move?) Here’s the direct link to my message in a bottle poem, SOS:

    • writersisland

      The Writer’s Island portmaster fixed the link to your poem in this comment post. You had entered the “href” string incorrectly… 😉

  53. Trying again–sent a different link (not the one that’s not working above) a few times, but it still hasn’t appeared here. Let’s see what happens this time….

    My message in the bottle is at:

    http://rrosenchang.blogspot.com

    Thanks!

    • writersisland

      The first link that was approved by the mr. spamonator (our portmaster) was a different web address. Now they are both cleared to come shore at will…
      😉

  54. Another attempt, assuming multiple bottles are permitted. Cheers.

    http://whimsygizmo.wordpress.com/2010/05/06/float/

    • writersisland

      Yes De, multiple posts are always permitted, but sometimes the portmaster gets testy if we try to include two links in one comment post — something about too many people in a boat?… 😉

  55. Hey there, Island master. Did I do that, on accident? Sorry if I did. I’m much more a kayak girl than a high-tech vessel. Navigating the cyber waters isn’t my strong suit. Just happy to have a friendly place to land.

  56. Okay, then; I guess I’m in with Empties at Scrambled, Not Fried.

      Welcome to the newly re-opened Writer’s Island Michael. Nice to see you here! I have informed the portmaster that you are a welcomed member of our Island community, so from now on, your comment posts will be allowed on the beach immediately! . Please enjoy the wonderful sun and breezes — we Islanders love to share, and are excited to learn what you have to say… 😉

  58. I’d like to come to Writer’s Island. My message in a bottle is over at http://sadlywaiting.blogspot.com/2010/05/voyager-was-bottle-and-it-carried.html
    Thanks.
