Microfiction Monday - 20100823

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


You're right Mr. McCoy, the recipe clearly calls for a dash of thyme.

Well, i am beyond the ability to delight in the subtle flavor, but your guests will love it.

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 guess it would be difficult to savor the essence of 'thyme' when you've run out of 'time'. Have a great week. Cheers.
