Summer Ross's Inspiration Blog Fest!

HELLO, HELLO FELLOW BLOGGERS! 

Last week was one of those great summer weeks when I had four big things going on and I didn't get to read all the poems I wanted to for Shelly Brown's AWESOME POETRY SCHMOETRY BLOGFEST. I want to try and catch up this week - so hopefully I'll get to your poem and your blog if I didn't make it last week. To read my post about her blog fest go here.

Today I'm posting a prompt for 
SUMMER ROSS'S INSPIRATION BLOG FEST! 
Run on over to her blog, My Inner Fairy, and check out the participating bloggers for lots of inspiring writing prompts. http://summersvoice.blogspot.com/ 
People are posting writing or photo prompts. Go gather all that splendid inspiration! 
Summer also has Fantastic tabs on her blog with links for writers and writing prompts. Thanks, Summer! You're so awesome to gather such super links for us!


HERE'S MY PWP
(AKA PHOTO WRITING PROMPT)

I SPOTTED THESE HONEY-BUYING-DISPENSER-BOXES FOR 
ORANGE HONEY AT A GROCERY STORE

HERE'S A CLOSE-UP OF THE WARNING SIGN ON THE BOX.


LET YOUR MIND GO WILD!

I've never seen a dispenser like that--I wish they had them around here. :D

Great prompt!

Amy said...

That is too funny! It definitely inspires me to NOT open the box. Of course, it kinda makes me want to at the same time! :)

I see a great story that could come from that picture, something scary!

Summer Ross said...

That is so funny! I can imagine a reaction or two to this. thanks for participating!

Jen Daiker said...

I loved this idea. How fabulous!!! I love the box but the sign would have me backing away out of the store. Just the thought of the insect being nearby would have me out of the store without purchasing a thing.

Morgan said...

Haha, that's hilarious! In real life, I'd stay far away from the box. But in a story, my characters would be taking a peek- for better or for worse. Thanks for sharing!

LOL. How awesome!

The East Coaster said...

I have to find some of these! Not sure what I'll do with them, but they must be mine lol

Manda said...

Well all right. Here's the thing: I'm a big Sherlock Holmes fan (inherited that from my father, sort of like a genetic disease), and he kept bees in his retirement, so now I'm thinking . . .

Melissa Lemon said...

I'm terrified of bees. Love your photo inspiration idea. May have to copy. Will you sue me for plaigarism?

Jackie Jordan said...

You cannot imagine how inspirational this photo is for me, Brenda. My dad used to raise [collect] bees as a hobby. I used to love watching him build the wooden hive like the ones you photographed. His queens were sent via USPO. He would dress in his bee-keeping garb during honey-gathering season and smoke the little guys out of the hive. Once, the bees overcame him and I rescued him by lighting a "smoker" and threw it to him. I was petrified, and he was well stung all over. LOL Ah, the memories. Thank you so much, because I haven't thought of him for a long time this way, except when I type his name as my password . . .

Kimberly Krey said...

Okay, so I love your photos too! What an original and clever idea. I've also seen those in grocery stores, and my husband and I actually wondered if it was a joke (the warning sign). It definitely had us curious. :)

Katie Dodge said...

Hey! Congrats on being one of the finalists for the blog fest! I voted for you!!! I miss you and our group. We need to get together soon!! :D

Michael Di Gesu said...

Now this is by far the most interesting entry I've seen in this blogfest. This proves anyone can be inspired by anything.... lol.

This is awesome.

Susan Kane said...

Oh, how funny! I love signs that entice misbehavior!

Lisa Potts said...

I'm deathly afraid of bees so your entry inspires fear for this writer. Still a very original entry!
