Writings of a Mrs


Welcome to the third week of Stuff it Tuesday a blogging collaboration challenge for poets, writers, artists and photographers.

I offer the opening paragraph and the closing poem.  I ask contributors to fill in the middle, I then link the story together as best as I can. I include all submissions.

I put the link to each persons submission below their piece so that you can check out their blog.  Please show support and give the blogs a look to see if it’s something that interests you.

You can find next weeks Stuff It opening and closing paragraphs on my home page under the Stuff it Tuesdays Tab.  It will be updated tomorrow.

This weeks ‘storetry’ is beautiful.  I think it’s my favorite yet.  Thank you for participating and I encourage you to continue and for those of you that hesitate, don’t!  Participate!

Please feel free to re blog so…
