Creative efforts

Today I must play the samurai with my story for Friday's Creativity Challenge (it's a bit long and requires some cutting). But I have been following the creative efforts of others and thought this would be a great opportunity to share them with you.

The FaBo Story is scheduled to continue with chapter 2 (what was outside Remy's tent?)...

Simon and Mercedes are trying to figure out how to kill each other...

Christie has begun a story challenge....

Toby has some original poetry (as do other Poetry Friday participants)...

Roland continues his online story Ghost of a Chance...

and Tahereh continues the Querypolitan fun.

Go see what others are writing, and be sure to write up your post for the Creativity Challenge. Posts should be up by Friday, and you will be able to leave links in the comments of my post to share with others.

And if there are other great stories or original creative work that should be added to the list, please let me know.


  1. Oh, gosh, I really love your creativity challenge, although I have not fashioned anything complete from it. But this is the germ of the story it brings to mind: the hat was once a bird - the mate of the one flying overhead - that swooped too low and was snatched out of the air to become a proud headdress. The boy wearing the hat is now able to think very high and faraway thoughts. But the bird-hat longs to have its wings back, so that it can rejoin its mate.

    I enjoyed reading the first chapter of the collaborative FaBo story. Thanks for sharing the links and for the shout-out, Alison. :)

  2. aww thanks so much for the linkage, love! :D

  3. Toby: that's fabulous! I love it. :)

    Editor-in-chief: you're most welcome. You are a font of querypolitan delight.

  4. Thank you for the mention and the link. That means a lot to me.

    I wish I could have gone with you to the Deutsche Film und Fernsehen Museum and seen that entire room dedicated to Marlene Dietrich.

    Maybe one day ... sigh. Have a great weekend, Roland

  5. Roland: my pleasure. Thanks for entertaining us with your serial story.

    You really should visit the Museum some time. You'd love it. Including the photograph of Hemingway that he signed to "My favorite Kraut" Marlene.
