Ten Word Photo Prompt: Sailing

Standard

It’s ten word photo prompt time! Using the above photo, write a ten word story. Yes to titles; no to titles as long as the story.

You can post here, on your blog, whatever floats your boat (GET IT?? BOAT?? BECAUSE IT’S A PICTURE OF A…never mind). Just make sure you leave a link so we can find you.

OK, and so here’s mine:

“Only a few hours,” he replied, his smile saying otherwise.

#MAYKingItWork has a logo!

Standard

Here’s the link if you want the logo: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Dcj0gjlXkAIBshn.jpg

So check it out, fellow MAYkers and MAYkers to be (you can jump in at any time, we’re not fussy)! We have a new logo courtesy of Donna B. McNicol! And isn’t it beautiful?

Doesn’t it just MAYke you want to jump into your chosen May task?

What’s that, hypothetical reader? Do I plan to cool it with the May-not-quite-puns?

I wouldn’t MAYke a bet on it.

If you would like to grab the lovely logo for yourself, you can right-click on the image or you can just copy the link in the caption. I have no doubt you can MAYkItWork.

Now I’ve stumbled into a stylistic question. Is it MAYke or MAYk? Let me know what you think.

Off we venture into a brand-new week of addressing what nags us, and I wish everyone the best of luck. Though how can we not have it with this beautiful logo?

Wondering what this is all about? It’s super simple. Pick something you need to get done and promise to MAYkItWork in May! You can let us know what you’re doing in the comments, or blog about it and come here and leave a link. On Fridays, we’ll chat about how it’s going for everyone.

It’s like a support group challenge, heavy on the support, light on the challenge. Want to vent before Friday? Better yet, doing so well you need to tell the world? Well, you’re welcome at any time!

Thanks again to Donna, and happy goal-reaching!

#MAYkingItWork Friday: Declaration Day

Standard

OK, friends who have decided to take something languishing and make it work during this month, today’s the day you say it loud and say it, if you’re like me, a little hesitantly. Just kidding!

Today we declare what nagging bit of unfinished work we’re going to dust off and attack. But in a nice way. No pressure; this is the gentlest of challenges. As co-host Breaker of Things said, it’s more of a getting-back-on-the-computer-or-sewing-machine-or-whatever support group. Well, he didn’t say it exactly that way, but there’s nothing pedantic about #MAYkingItWork.

Unless you want it to be.

What’s that, hypothetical and non-hypothetical readers alike? I haven’t declared anything so far?

How very astute.

OK for the month of May, I will set my sights on finishing the first draft of the Aunty Ida book that’s been lying around (and we all know Aunty Ida hates lying around) and finish this round of edits on a completed stand-alone novel.

Your turn! Feel free to discuss in the comments, or blog about it and leave a link. Happy MAYkingItWork!
