Microfiction Monday - 20101004

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

The view was incredible, but the horse was magnificent.  When the king bestowed this gift should could not have refused.  Not that she had wanted to.

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.

Sounds like even thought she could not refuse, she was happy with the gift. Great microfiction!
