I'd Invent... #mfrwauthor

Welcome to week 9. This week's topic is something I'd invent if I was stuck on a desert island. After the theme to Gilligan's Island stopped playing in my head several things came to mind. Paper and ink so I could record my adventures, whether real or imaginary. Next creation would be paints from natural pigments so I could illuminate my works in the manner of medieval monks.

Then the light bulb went off. I'd just finished writing a sea rescue for my work in progress. If you haven't guessed it, I'd invent means of rescue. It might be a raft from Gilligan's Island or the flaming S.O.S. created by team Scorpion. Or a simple message on the beach made from shells and another on the mountain top out of tree fronds.

This is a blog hop so be sure to visit the other posts. ~till next time, Helen

    1. The show might have been campy and unreasonable, but it was good, clean fun. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Teleportation would be a wonderful invention for getting off the island. I couldn't help but think of Gillian's Island, too. I love your idea about using paints with natural pigments.

    1. As an old farm girl, it was not unusual to have to make do (or get inventive) when it wasn't the day to go into town. Although I admit I'm not that inventy anymore.

  3. I'm afraid I'd be about as capable as Gilligan.

    1. The topic didn't say we couldn't have a handsome hunk for the heavy lifting and the actual inventing. :)

  4. good options! The pen and paper would be really important. I'm not much of an artist so no painting for me. And a way home, that is top of the list!
