It’s close to the middle of the month, so I’m here with a gentle reminder that there’s still time to link your colouring projects to the original prompt from June 1st, here. The comments in this post are turned off to ensure all pingbacks go to the original post.

Here’s what I’m working on to show you, hopefully all coloured in, on July 1st.

Our June club participants so far, are:

Barbara at Teleportingweena

Janet at Janet’s Smiles

One-Liner Wednesday – Precognition or Coincidence?

What are the odds I’d come across this picture now, after forty-seven years–and what are the odds of giving him yellow hair and orange skin in 1971?

Obviously I was practicing my signature for when I became a famous artist. Haha.

If I’d known then what I know now, I’d have given him smaller hands.


If you would like to participate in this prompt, feel free to use the “One-Liner Wednesday” title in your post, and if you do, you can ping back here to help your blog get more exposure. To execute a pingback, just copy the URL in the address bar on this post, and paste it somewhere in the body of your post. Your link will show up in the comments below. Please ensure that the One-Liner Wednesday you’re pinging back to is this week’s! Otherwise, no one will likely see it but me.

NOTE: Pingbacks only work from WordPress sites. If you’re self-hosted or are participating from another host, like Blogger, please leave a link to your post in the comments below.

As with Stream of Consciousness Saturday (SoCS), if you see a pingback from someone else in my comment section, click and have a read. It’s bound to be short and sweet.

Unlike SoCS, this is not a prompt so there’s no need to stick to the same “theme.”

The rules that I’ve made for myself (but don’t always follow) for “One-Liner Wednesday” are:

1. Make it one sentence.

2. Try to make it either funny or inspirational.

3. Use our unique tag #1linerWeds.

4. Add our lovely new badge to your post for extra exposure!

5. Have fun!

The Escapist Coloring Club – mid-month April 2018

Okay, I’m way off the middle of the month, but I still want to remind everyone that there’s still time to link your colouring project to the monthly prompt. You can find it here. The comments in this post are turned off to ensure all pingbacks go to the original post.

We only have one entrant in the comment section this month so far. If you’ve completed a project but haven’t added your link, please do it soon. Our one and only colouring project this month comes from Colline. You can find her post here: https://collinesblog.com/2018/04/12/monster-colouring/

Colouring is fun and relaxing. I hope you’ll join us!

217. Scenes from the Second Seat on the Right

Thursday, April 5th, 4:00pm
Hans (and Zoey)

 

Hans sits at the window. Zoey takes the seat beside him.

Hans: Life is really like a portrait.

Zoey: I beg your pardon?

Hans: Life. It’s like this great–no, this humongous picture.

Zoey: You think?

Hans: Yes.

Zoey: Don’t you think life has a bit more movement than a picture?

Hans: Who’s to say a picture doesn’t move when no one is looking?

Zoey: Huh. Like if a tree falls in the forest.

Hans: Exactly.

Zoey: That’s kinda scary.

Hans: It is.

 

Next stop: Friday, April 6th, 8:00pm
