The meme got its start at Mimi Writes, and requires a little creativity and photo editing software ... both of which I have. Mimi provides a blank picture of a bottle on a beach, and you just need to come up with a message to inscribe on it. You can ogle my mishmash of a missive on the right.
Needing to find inspiration for new poems wherever I can, I also wrote an extended version of my "message in a bottle" that I'll be posting above. Augmenting your experience even more, I'm going to include an original sketch as well.
The rules require that I tag at least five other bloggers. I'm always a bit conflicted about foisting work on others, but I justify it as a way to recognize my favorite sites. So, here are my lucky victims:
- Berryvox at Adventures in Time and Space
- Cooper at Wonderland Or Not
- JD at Uneasy Supplicant
- Michelle at Binding Ink
- Raven at Stuperhero Extraordinaire
I will have a go at it probably sometime this week when my creative juices are moving faster. It is interesting I will have to examine the rules in more detail when I do it.
As for comments, when there is a link in them it goes in moderation by default until I check it. I usually see them as I check my mail a few times a day. For spam purposes.
Thanks Cooper ... and sorry about the multiple comments/messages. The 404 page got me confused.
Congrats on your induction to the Society of Midnight Wanderers, your writing style is deserving.
Thanks much 1verse. I can say the same for your style, so keep an eye out.
Wonderfully done, franscud. The poem, the sketch, the bottle. Just lovely. I will post these tonight on my site. Love them!
Thank you for playing along.
Your message bottle is now afloat in the vast blogosphere ocean. You are Message In a Bottle #89.
Feel free to toss in a bottle whenever you feel the urge to send a message. The blog ocean is always open.
Message In a Bottle #89
Thanks for creating the meme, and linking to the full poem. I think a few of my taggees are going to be participating soon too.
Always good to find someone else who draws in their blog too. :)
