1) Mindy over at Drama Mama was tagged to choose this week’s Fun Monday (open to ALL) topic. Click her name for complete "instructions", but it’s basically a hat tip to the Bulwer-Lytton awards.
In summary, "compose an exceptionally bad opening sentence for any piece of
writing (not limited to novels…but not including blog posts) and include a photograph or brief description of some aspect of that
Those not following these guidelines will be praised for their creativity. One sentence is not a lot to ask."
Let Mindy know if you are planning to participate.
2) If you’re visiting from the Ultimate Blog Party, I’m STILL working on my "getting to know me"
post. Here’s a head’s up, though. I LIKE contests and I’ve been known to pimp my blog long before now. Because bloggers like to read, these prizes will be books…I’ll post titles later. For now, just note the categories for winning will include a) New bloggers who link PENSIEVE (me!) to your sidebar or subscribe via Bloglines (or another aggregator)(or BOTH), and b) new bloggers who check out Original Pensieve and comment to at least three archived posts. There will be lots of winners.
