Saving Money on Wedding Gifts: Wouldn’t It Be Great If People Accepted Prose, Wrapped with a Bow?

This couple will!  They would love for you to gift them your small prose!

I have no idea who these people are, but I am re-posting this because I sincerely like the idea (and I’m a sucker for weddings).  Also, I can imagine being really happy curling up with a future husband, newly married, and reading through beautiful short stories composed in celebration of our new marriage.  In my mind, it’s like showering them with rice–wishing them well–but with words instead.  (DON’T throw rice at your wedding!  It could get lodged in your ear, get infected, force you to cut your honeymoon short, undertake an uncomfortable surgery and come out of it with a pierced eardrum and a lifetime of deafness, like it did for poor Juliette Gordon Low, founder of Girl Scouts.  True story.)

Anywho, here’s their plea:

Kaspa & Fiona are both on a mission to help the world connect with the world through writing. They are also getting married on Saturday the 18th of June.

For their fantasy wedding present, they are asking people across the world to write them a ‘small stone’ and post it on their blogs or on Facebook or Twitter.

A small stone is a short piece of observational writing – simply pay attention to something properly and then write it down. Find out more about small stones here.

If you’re willing to help, we’d love you to do things:

1) Re-post this blog on your own blog any time before June the 18th and give your readers a chance to hear about what we’re doing. You can simply copy and paste the text, or you can find the html here.

2) Write us a small stone on our wedding day whilst we’re saying our vows and eating cake, post it on your blog, and send it to us.

You can find out more about our project at our website, Wedding Small Stones, and you can also read our blog at A River of Stones.

We also have a July challenge coming soon, when we’ll be challenging you to notice one thing every day during July and write it down.

Thank you for listening, and we hope we’ll be returning from our honeymoon to an inbox crammed with small stones, including yours.

Kaspa & Fiona

It’s a good way to get you inspired and writing.  And even though it’s not official submissions, it’s always nice to share your writing with others.  Besides, wouldn’t this make the BEST wedding story to tell their kids in years to come?  Help them have a good story.
