  1. Okay my lovelies, I hope you've cleared your desks and squeezed in time to write about The Romantic Picnic. We've posted about it, we've FB'd it, tweeted it, and now we see if we can get 20 entries.
    Can't wait to read your stories and poems...D

  8. Well, Denise, you have another entry. A midnight picnic in a cemetery yet! Hey, this is me we're talking about! It was great fun. At least for me. Victor Standish not so much. I wrote this one especially for the challenge, too.

  10. Ok I posted at my usual time, but I feel late to the party. Excellent turn out so far - thanks everyone.

    I've had a headache for days and days (the fires and smokey air I'm sure) so I'm sluggish in getting around. Please be patient with me as I try to find the right medication that clears my aching eyes and stuffy head without making me want to sleep through the apocalypse.

    Is it Dec 22 yet . . .

    1. Well we made it to 20 thanks to you and other's efforts! What enthusiastic writers are members of RFW!

      Delete
  17. Wowzers! Indeed Andy! And I think a lot of the new entrants are because of your promotion efforts. Thank you. I know at least one more worthy writer who is going to post which will mean 20 at least. (I feel like writing another story just for this purpose, lol!)

    Thank you everyone. What a lot of reading I have to do now!

    1. Not every prompt inspires a writing Heather. No problem; catch us when you can. We are glad that you have commented at least. Your feedback is always encouraging and well received. Hopefully you accomplished something either writerly, or in your day life that pleased you and made your week awesome. Have a great weekend Hon.

  24. Hey everyone :) Ok, so my first link went directly to RFW. See how much I love this site (lol)

    Anyway, I've deleted the last link (I was #13) and now I am #20. But seriously; the #20 link mark goes to Michael Di Gesu, who was #20 before I messed with things. You know how I'm always doing the SNAFU.

    Congratulations to Michael Di for being #20, and allowing us to meet our goal. We still have several more hours of linky time; and our fabulous partner Denise is working on a voting Poll to vote for your favorite author for this weeks Romantic Picnic Challenge. Voting starts tomorrow.

    Thank you everyone who participated this week, and to those still contemplating their excerpts. It has been a pleasure to read your submissions; and I know I will equally enjoy the ones I have yet to read this weekend.

    Kudos to all for your awesome writings.

    .......dhole

    PS: yes; I am feeling better. The air has cleared, I am down to one allergy pill a day, and my eyes aren't as tired or achy. I will sleep in on Sunday (had to work Saturday) and that should put me back to normal.

    Have a great weekend everyone.

    1. Glad you got your entry relinked Donna. It was wonderful to meet our #20! And a great story he wrote too.

      Well, sadly my romantic weekend at the beach is all but over. It's late Sunday here. I've just finished reading all the entries and wouldn't mind if a few more trickled in. I'd be happy to extend the linky.

      I will wait on the poll as I want to make sure there's more chance of everyone being read.

  26. Hi everyone! Many apologies if you've come back to vote and are wondering - where is the Poll? It seems our friend Google has deemed Polls aren't to be saved ATM. I've been trying for 2 days and Donna tried too, but for some 'javascriptvoid' reason, no go. So sorry! I know you wanted to vote for your favourite entry this prompt, but it's just not happening.

    When Donna does the Wrap Up on Wednesday you're most welcome to add a comment if you want to have your say...

    Denise

    ReplyDelete
  27. SO THE POLL IS UP! While troubleshooting the problem I found the consensus was that Polldaddy was far better than the problem-fraught Blogger Poll. So we only have a day to vote before Donna does her Wrap up. Go!

    ReplyDelete
  28. . . er, wrap-up. Sure, I'm working on that. Yes. The poll results will be the last thing I add so it can be open all the way till we hit "publish".

    I voted; hope everyone else does too . .

  29. Dear Denise,
    My vote has been cast. It was hard with so many great entries this week, but I tried to keep in mind what you said about the word limit, romance as well as the theme. I'll be back for the wrap up. See you again soon!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I may have almost missed my chance to vote!! Good thing I came back to vote! I'm glad you got the poll up! :) My vote's been cast! Good luck to everyone! All the entries were great!! And congrats for meeting your goal!!! Wooo-hoooo!!!! :)

  31. I voted yesterday, actually. Had to read all my favourites again before casting a vote for just one.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Was that yesterday or much earlier today - anyway it doesn't matter. I was one of the first few people to vote, I think. Poll went up as I was about to go to bed, lol.

  36. Now those votes are just proof on how varied everyone's taste really is. I want to congratulation everyone who posting a story at all.

  37. Due to circumstances, Donna is a little late with her wrap up. I just want to come by and tell you that, and also to thank everyone for such great entries. The voting system really doesn't tell us much, as Nancy says, we've all got such varied tastes and whatever else skews our attempts at finding an outright winner. D
