It’s that time! In 10 words, write a story about the writing prompt image above. Couldn’t resist this one as we move into the chillier season, with snow (!) predicted soon.

As always, you can have a title, but don’t go overboard…get it? WATER?


You’re probably right. I’m still not entirely over this bug I’ve had, I’m a little punchy. So punchy I’m trying out a new color for the story. Like? Don’t like?

OK, here we go:

Linda in the lead, Maisie set her doughnut to “turbo.”

Ten word story time! I’ll warn you, with NaNoWriMo up and running, my blogging times are probably going to vary widely. Words come first with NaNo!

So let’s get right to the point of this post: using the photo above, write a ten word story.

Here’s mine:

The universe’s fate depended upon his subduing the doomsday log.

Ten Word Photo Prompt: Punishment

It’s Thursday! The world hasn’t officially ended, at least as of this moment, which means it’s ten word photo prompt time.

Using the picture above, write a ten-word story. You can have a title, but no ridiculously long ones. All genres are welcome, but this is an inclusive space so no jerkiness. Not that I’d expect that from any of you, but we had a random wandering jerk once, it could happen again.

With today’s story, you get bonus points for puns. I love puns.

OK, here’s mine:

Potatony gasped. Someone stuck a fork in Frita. She’s done.

It’s ten word photo prompt story time! Using the image above, write a 10 word story. You can have a title, but don’t go nuts.

Feel free to post here, or on your site if you prefer. Just leave a link so we can find you! I couldn’t resist this one, this picture is so beautiful.

This pic not doing it for you? Here are some past posts!

It’s that time! Using the photo above, write a ten-word story, here in the comments, on your blog, wherever. If you do blog it, please leave a link so we can find you!

Titles are OK, but not too long, and I hate having to say this aloud, but nothing that denigrates anyone or their experiences. Let’s keep this fun. Even if horror is your thing, which is fine.

OK, here we go:

She strode from eternity, unsure if life would yield again.

WHEW! This week was a tough one!

Ten Word Photo Prompt: Yikes

It’s Thursday! Time for a photo prompt and a ten word story! I thought we were all adults here, but apparently we are not. This is supposed to be fun.


But if your story is disrespectful to any group in any way, I will delete your link or comment, replace it with my own and block you from the blog.

Sound draconian? Well people are currently being bombarded with hatred and bigotry and questioning of their very humanity. That’s not going to happen here. We are kind to one another here. We are supportive to one another here. We do not mock other people’s pain here.



Do we like the double image? Is it annoying? Let me know.

OK, keeping that in mind, write a 10 word story using the above image, which I think is one of the creepiest pictures so far. Maybe you don’t. Maybe you think it’s adorbs.

Craft your story as you choose! Titles are fine, but don’t go overboard.

Here’s mine:

Finally, the lid popped. They scattered, trailing their nightmares behind.
