How low can you go?

Use the photo as inspiration for a story of 140 characters OR 140 words. It doesn’t have to be exactly 140, just not more.

Want more challenge? Use the word of the week in your story. This part is optional.

I’ve changed the Linky time to accommodate those who prefer to play on Sunday. It will open on Sunday at 12:15AM, although I will continue to be more of a Monday player.

If you visit later in the week, this post may no longer be at the top of the blog. Click on the Succinctly Yours button that is located just below the header. It will take you here quickly.

I really appreciate the outpouring of support received for Succinctly Yours. Please help me spread the word to other microfiction lovers. Rather than post my story here, I’ll be posting in the Linky list. So just look for me there.

Photo for Monday, May 23rd.



Word Of The Week:
kink

I’ll be around to visit and see what you’ve come up with on Friday.

And here’s the pic for Monday, May 30th.

Her grandmother had produced delicious coffee from the old percolator, but it was a skill that no one else had mastered. The new coffeemaker looked out of place in the kitchen, which had seen few changes since its restoration over fifty years earlier. Read more »

Clip of Idols seeing bits of Super 8 and receiving cameras to film their hometown visits.
