Wednesday's Words on a Friday


The original Words for Wednesday was begun by Delores and eventually taken over by a moveable feast of participants when Delores had computer troubles.

The aim of the words is to encourage us to write. A story, a poem, whatever comes to mind.
If you are posting an entry on your own blog, please let us know so we can come along and read it.


This month the words/phrases/photos  can be found here.


This week we have two photos by Danny McCaughan:




I've chosen the second one to write a few words about:

"Mum, what's this photo and letter about here on the dining table?" said Valerie.

"It's from your cousin Wallace," said Mum Belinda. "The photo is the old Willcox farm, way out on that peninsula where you can see the Atlantic ocean. Wally's Uncle Nick has just bought it and we are all invited to stay for the Easter break."

"Lovely!" said Valerie. "It looks cold though, we'd better pack for winter, in case they want to go walking about and showing us the sights."

  1. Yes the palace looks lovely and cold. I hope they'll have a nice easter break out there.

  2. I can just imaging the cold winds blowing in from the ocean. Winter clothing indeed!

    1. Cathy; perhaps some fur-lined coats and boots, like the Eskimos wear.

    1. Lee; very short. I almost gave this week a pass as I couldn't think of anything and the pictures didn't seem to fit with my other on-going story.

  4. You've set them up for a lovely vacation. Nicely told!

  5. Looks like a good place for them to explore. So much implied, from so few words.

    1. Val; I hope there is plenty to explore, maybe some tiny villages, or some caves along the cliff..

  6. This is great. I am glad that you found some words for the challenge.

    1. Elephant's Child; it was a last minute thing. I was trying to fit the pictures with some of my longer stories, to add a chapter, but got nothing that way.

  7. I should add I love the house and also what you've done with it. I could spend the rest of my life there with a fire going in that chimney.

    1. Wisewebwoman; I used to think I'd like a place so isolated, but if I can't get TV, phone and internet, I might get a little nuts.

  8. Good, nice little story - short and sweet.

  9. Looks like a perfect slice of heaven to me!

    1. Magical Mystical Mimi; it could be, as long as it has decent heating and internet.

  10. That cat picture reminds me of when I look in the mirror and see something different from what everyone else is seeing (I hope ....)

    1. Fran Hill; nice to see you here. Most of the time I look in the mirror and see the younger me, now and again I see my mother or grandmother, depends on how tired I am or if I've been unwell.

  11. Nice job. Yeah, you're right. As pretty as the picture is, it does look like a cold location. (But I'm sure the family fun will "warm" things up!) To tell the truth, I'm a little surprised you didn't select the picture of the kitties as the basis of your story this week. They're sooo cute...

    1. Susan; I was pretty sure most of the others would write about the kitties, so I went the other way. I have no doubt whatsoever that family will warm things up when they get there.
      They're a "invite everyone, let's have a party/get together" type of family.

  12. Sometimes the ideas just won't come, or take a long time. It's the same with poetry. Some weeks lately I've been really struggling. It's not the topic, or the words or pictures, it's just hard to generate a germ of a story/poem. They say you have to keep writing, though, not just wait for inspiration, and you've done a good job.

    1. jenny_o; I think you do a great job with your poems. Poetry is the one thing I could never ever do, hopeless at it in school too. Thank goodness the lower grades favoured essays, lucky me, and I left school early.
