The word for this month’s mini-competition is MAGPIE.
All you need to do is write a short story in 100 words or less, or a poem in ten lines or less and snail-mail it together with the entry fee ($1.40 in unused postage stamps) to Positive Words magazine, PO Box 798, Heathcote 3523, Victoria, Australia. Entries need to be posted by 30 September 2014.

Today’s writing prompt:
Fortunately, the magpies in my area are friendly but I have had a few not-so-pleasant encounters in the past 😦
Today’s prompt . . .
A single ibis flew across the red horizon.
A writing prompt for today . . .
A lone Pelican flew across the horizon.
Inspired by a television show I watched recently 🙂
While so many of us race around frantically in the pre-Christmas rush . . . these guys continue on as usual!
Perhaps there’s a lesson there for us 🙂
Pelicans roosting in a tree at Lake Eppalock 🙂
These cheeky Sparrows kept me amused as I waited in the car while Rod went into a ‘boys’ shop 🙂
There’s still a little space left in the October PETS issue . . . I have lots of dog, cat and chook pieces but I’d love to include more stories and poems about unusual pets.
There’s still time to send your story or poem. I don’t have an official cut-off point but please post as soon as possible.

Where there’s a will there’s a way . . . and this Corella was very determined to find a way to get rid of the chain and lock 🙂
