Saturday Scribes Weekly Prompt: July 4th

Welcome back to the Saturday Scribes weekly prompt. If you’re new to the game, you can find the prompt guidelines here, and learn more about us here.

Theme: Landscape
Remember, the theme can be interpreted in many different ways – there’s no such thing as a wrong interpretation. It could be an ordinary landscape, but it could also be the landscape of the mind, or an alien planet, or something else all together. Let your imagination be your guide.

Four words:

Since everyone’s been doing so well with the three-word prompt, I thought I’d make it a little more challenging this week. I’m sure all our keen Saturday Scribblers are up to the task – should they choose to accept it.

One last reminder: You can write on just the theme, or just the word prompt, or both – it’s up to you. Or, if you feel like going in an altogether different direction, feel free to post anyhow – let us know what inspired you this week!

    I’m new to this so I hope I’ve done this right!

    Katie gets “Ice creamed” . . . Okay, it was bad, but I couldn’t resist . . .

    here’s my link, which will mysteriously disappear, only to reappear shortly!
    4 word prompts, eh? More challenging, but I think we’re up to the task.

    Welcome ellefire, SubtleKisses, and ichthusfish! It’s great to see Stringing Words folks dropping by. 🙂
    (In case you’re wondering, desert rat and mimosaeffect are both aliases for fishcat, which is what I go by over on the NaNo boards)

    Once again, Akismet is playing favourites – it let in ellefire’s comment, but not ichthusfish’s. Huh. Technology with a mind of its own…

    I think I may have figured it out… all the people Akismet likes have WordPress blogs. Er… but that doesn’t explain why it doesn’t like Paul Darcy, who also has a WP blog. Sorry, Paul! Maybe if you spoke to Akismet in gentle tones and offered it treats…. Oh, now I see. Reader’s Den is WP, but Twisted Mind is Blogger. Maybe if you posted using the Reader’s Den url?

    Okay kiddies…this is all about flogging a dead equine (so to speak).

    I went with the “an altogether different direction” route this week. (Though I still might try squeezing out something about the blue ice-cream shoe whistle.)
