Hey all! It’s been a while since we did a ten word photo prompt story, given my vacation and running Jane Storegoer. Had a tough time choosing an image today, so we have some cool ones coming up.

For anyone unfamiliar, prompted by the the above image, write a ten word story. You can have a title, which doesn’t count toward the total, but let’s stay with the spirit of the challenge. Drop your story in the comments!

Here’s mine:

Resolved, she plunged the balloon downward. She was going back.

And it’s that time again! Using the photo above, write a 10-word story. Titles don’t count toward the ten words, but let’s do it honestly.

Here’s mine:

Come dawn, he surrendered. The home wouldn’t let him go.

Your turn!

So today I thought we’d try something a little bit different. Using the photo above, write a ten word story.

Exactly ten words.

As the puddle shrank, the world she ruled vanished too.

Blogging from Prompts Day 1: What Have You…

Standard

Happy Monday, friends! It arrives no matter how we feel about it, so we might as well greet it nicely, and maybe it will be nice to us.

Maybe.

So this week I’m going to blog from random writing prompts, because, well, why not? Today I’ve used this website and here’s the prompt:

“What have you stolen?”

Hmm.

This is a tough prompt for me, as I am one of those painfully, painfully honest people who goes back if I get too much change. The other day, I parked on a Chicago street with metered parking. Here, instead of a meter per spot, we have pay boxes. Well, a woman was leaving and she offered me her printed receipt so I would get free time.

And I didn’t take it.

It felt….weird.

Once, though, when I was a child, I went to the hardware store with my Dad, one of those locally-owned ones with dead-end corners and fascinating bits in bins. I needed a combination lock for school or something, so I picked one up and carried it around, looking at everything.

Well, my Dad didn’t find what he needed, and out we went. And then I realized I was still holding the lock. I’d completely forgotten it was in my hand.

That’s right. I was a thief.

I panicked. I told my Dad. I wondered how I could recover from this moral turpitude, though at that stage I doubt I knew the phrase moral turpitude, but I got the idea.

He told me to put it back.

Embarrassed and feeling every inch the criminal I was, I slunk in and put it down, and slunk back out again.

Crime spree complete.
