* It's Microfiction Monday *

Welcome to Microfiction Monday, where a picture paints 140 characters, or even fewer. Every Sunday evening, Susan at Stony River posts her own 'microfiction' inspired by a photo or illustration, and invites us to do the same.



Here's this week's picture, followed by my story for it:

(Coming in at exactly 140 Characters! Woot!)

  12. That's how you know you're a writer--when your concern is writing too many words instead of not enough!! Nice job!

  17. Thank you everyone! I apologize for not getting around to everyone's stories this week. My oldest son has been having health issues and my mind hasn't been totally on my blog, as I'm sure you can all understand. Thanks!!
