It’s THURSDAY. Already. Somehow. Which means it’s time for a ten word story!

Using the above image as a prompt, write a ten word story.

EXACTLY ten words.

Nothing easier! Except a lot of things.

Ready? Here’s mine:

#Promptapalooza: Word List

Standard

No #AccountaClub this week, because for the next few days we’re doing something fun and different! #PromptaPalooza!

What is that, you ask?

It’s a special week of writing from prompts! Or almost week. Haven’t decided yet.

You know how I like to wing it.

Today’s prompt is from a list of random words I generated on this site. You can write whatever you like, as long as you like, whatever format you like.

Just incorporate these six words: noble, mysterious, harlot, convict, country, affliction.

Happy writing!

Ten Word Photo Prompt: Reflection

Standard

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

Exactly ten words.

Drop it in the comments so we can admire your creation! Title doesn’t count toward word total.

My ten word story:

Reign

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

Easy like Tuesday morning or bloggety blog.

Standard

Ah blog. Blogetty blog blog blog. Blogging. Right. Blogging.That’s what I’m doing right now. Blogging.

It’s gray again today, and the air has that clean, damp coolness to the back of it. It’s a tad chilly but I have the window open anyway. As often happens on these soggy days, the noise outside is muted, and the traffic drone a soft nest of sound.

I’d call it soporific if I hadn’t just finished my coffee. Finished? Let me check. If it wasn’t finished before, it’s finished now.

And there’s the siren. Un-citylike interlude over.

It’s funny how one place can feel like another, if only for a brief few minutes. I could have been anywhere with a brisk, humid breeze. Until that siren. And then the low trundle of a bus.

Sometimes, while writing, we want those concrete details, the ones that anchor us firmly to time and place. Usually, in my own writing, I like to use broad strokes; suggestions, and let the reader fill in the details.

Notice. Always notice. At the worst, you’ll get yourself a blog post out of it.

Blogetty blog indeed.
