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


Ok, look, we've only got a few seconds until they're on to us.  Do you have the data?

Transferring it now.

Next time, head to the rendezvous!

There better not be a next time!

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.

Sounds like lines from a movie I'd like to see! Excellent to read a 140-character thriller.

I love the suspense, spies among us.
Very true to life with our newly found, Russian spies, just caught.

It does sound like a Thriller, I hope they are able to get away before the other come. Nice take on the picture.

Love it! So were these spies recruited at birth? Or is it a way for teen-age girls to pay for their clothes and makeup and laptops? LOL
