Microfiction Monday:


Over the River and Into the Woods

"Plum pudding?"
"Check."
"Roasting pig?"
"Check."
"Mistletoe?"
"Check."
"Kiss?"
"Not on your life!"

Want to play? Visit Susan at Stony River and you can find all the information you'll need, along with al ot of other entertaining information. Here's the gist of it, from Susan's blog:
"Microfiction" means the shortest of short stories. Think Aesop's fables, comic strips, or even jokes: complete stories that can be told in under a minute. For this game, the limit is a tweetable 140 characters or fewer."

So, use the photo Susan provides to write a story in 140 characters (that includes spaces and punctuation!). You can google a character counter to make it a lot easier. Here' s a link to one I use.

Have fun!

Clever one, trying to slip that in! Reminds me of a Marx Brothers' routine, but less manic!

Merry Christmas, Granny Sue!

Ah wise girl. ;)

Granny Sue said...

Thank you, Susan! Moondustwriter, she tried, but he slipped right out of the net :)

Akelmalu, maybe she'll have better luck after he eats the (brandy-laden) plum pudding.
