Hmm … THAT explains everything!

Sorry Christine, you were saying? :grinning:

I’m going to tag you in - see if you can see the notification.


#904

@cdcraftee - Tagged you on Slack


#905

Gotcha - answering on Slack. Thank you!

AndinsofaraswotIwozsaying - you really don’t want to know.
Didn’t your Granny teach you to be careful what you ask for? Shh… don’t answer that!


#906

Nah its all good - I’m gradually getting to everything. My immediate priority is I have to enter Alex Nderitu for the Caine Prize for his story in the Thriller anthology. Falls on me as ‘publisher’ and I need to do a letter and send copies.

#908

Wow, that was unexpected.
Thanks.


#909

OMG, what is wrong with me! It was supposed to be totally random. You are in my head! Get out of my head!


#910

wowsers.
I didn’t know all this. I actually shared her story from the Travel prompt on twitter back then as I thought it was too good to not share.


#911

Thank you Christine, you are seriously making me blush :blush: I have been fortunate for sure and not more so in having been steered in the direction of this group. Thank you all for being so welcoming and encouraging.


#912

Oh wow! Thank you so much!


#913

Well, I don’t know what Scribbler has been on, but it hasn’t been any sight-seeing tour that’s for sure. Trying her hand at something a little different, loosely based on folk I believe she knew. https://www.wattpad.com/683258104-the-gateway-25-in-guid-spirits-prompt-tourist

Someone said there was a new story about fishing - ohh… it was Old McLarsen, and then he said the reality isn’t new at all - happened years ago - but admitted he still likes to think about it. It goes like this -

Gone Fishin’


#915

Well, this week I’m Virtually There with my contribution.


#916

John’s story is already there! It’s just like the old days, except for the not working part.

Update: Now 3 stories show up in the search. Could it be almost wo…wo…wo…working?


#917

In Norwegian, the word “tur” means going for a walkabout. Look, here’s someone on tour over the fjells of Telemark: https://www.wattpad.com/683555853-spun-again-2-telemark-veils-of-magic-prompt


#918

Spookily, I’m working on a fishing related idea for the tourist prompt. Hopefully I’ll get it done by Sunday afternoon.


#919

I am being a tourist this weekend; visiting friends in S. Carolina. So I will keep tabs on the forum and post a list as needed but it may wait until the end of the day.
So far, the links are pretty clear and I am going to go read a few of them now.


#920

By the way, Jenni Clarke has posted a story from last week’s prompt.
I am having trouble pasting the link with my iPad but it is showing up on the keyword search. Search on #weekendwritein #right to find “After Evie”.


#921

Tyra has added a new chapter to her saga, Tourist Trap

Thanks to one of those great coincidences which have served me so well in previous Weekenders, it just so happens that a comic book published a decade ago featuring 1940’s heroes established that ‘tourist’ is slang for a costumed non powered hero. ‘Tourists’ in a war zone are generally looked down upon by their super powered compatriots and though FT (At this stage non powered) has proven his worth to the likes of Captain America … that doesn’t cut any ice with the Sub Mariner!

How did the incursion start? And who is … The Black Fury!?

My friend suggests all Marvel and FT fans look for the answers here - https://www.wattpad.com/683829847-time-immemorial-22-3-black-fury-1943
