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.”

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!


Beyond the flower-ringed curtain, her unknown future was waiting.

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!

It’s ten word photo prompt story time! I apologize for last week, when I looked at the post this week, the picture wasn’t working. How can you write a story without a picture?


If it happens again, please feel free to let me know. So, in case you’re not familiar, using the photo above as a prompt, write a 10-word short story about it. Easy as pie!

In that pies are kind of hard.

Title away, just no me-length titles (have you seen the titles of my books?!)

And here’s mine:

Daylight a mirage, the maze grew another dark, tangled arm.

It’s Thursday and time for a new photo and new ten word story! Feel free to post on your blog and drop a link in the comments, or here, if you prefer. Whatever works for you. There were some awesome ones last week, make sure you see the comments to check them out.


Using the above photo, write a ten-word short story. Easy, right?


Titles are fine, just keep them reasonable.

OK, here’s mine:

Unmoored, the airship drifted upward, reluctantly facing its blue eternity.

Ten word story time! I know it’s challenging, but it’s over before you know it. In ten words, to be precise.

Using the above photo, write a micro-flash fiction story of only ten words. You can have a title, if you’d like, but don’t go nuts with it.

I couldn’t resist this photo, it’s just so pretty. OK, here’s mine:

August, yet still spring. She groaned and grabbed the pliers.
