Microfiction Monday - 20100719

Welcome to Microfiction Monday, 
where a picture paints 140 characters, or even fewer.


I think that fern back there was sprayed with some kind of pesticide.  Whatever happen to going organic!?!

Your Turn!  

About Microfiction Monday
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. 

Hate counting letters and spaces? Try Design 215's character counter, which will count for you as you type. Microsoft Word will count for you too, of course, as part of its word count feature under the 'Review' tab.
Photos will be from my own archives; illustrations are from Dover Publications' free clipart sample newsletter.

And finally, why 140? A whole new fiction market has arisen via mobile phone texting and Twitter, who limits 'tweets' to 140 characters including spaces and punctuation. It's fast, it's fiction, it's fun. 

I joined this meme thread from a fellow parent dealing with an Autistic child: Susan @ Stony River: a writing life

Well there's nothing organic about that little lobster LOL although I admit I look like that too, a lot of days!

Oh dear. Hope he's not allergic to pesticides.

Well done!

says the little plastic crab... Good one. Everybody's a critic these days, huh? Even the tub toys.

A different and clever take on the picture. Loved it.

Have a great week.

That would explain his strained expression. :)
