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


My feet are killing me!
Ssh! He is about to take the picture.
He better hurry up if they dosn't want these size 8 heels stuck through that lens of his!

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 one of them doesn't want to get their picture taken.

And then go and use the camera with those HUGE flashbulbs that practically blind you!

Nicely done!

The best use for high heels.

Nice job.

LOL. I think I might have said the same thing stood waiting for him to take the picture. Loved it!

p.s. I’m running a competition this week and holding a blogfest in November. If you get time, pop along and have a look.
