Pictures from  Heritage Snapper and Imageafter.com.

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.

It’s Thursday, and ten word story time! Even though I’m pretty consumed with the hearings going on right now, taking a break to do something like this is a great form of mental exercise.

Got to remain flexible in our bodies and our heads.

Judging by my take, though, apparently not too flexible

So, in case you are new here (and then welcome!), using the above photo as a prompt, write a 10-word story. You can have a title if you choose, but don’t go overboard.

OK, here we go.

Final Senator shoved in, she clicked the lock. Problem solved.

It’s that time of the week! I thought this one would be a nice break from the heat, if not a little bit of a reminder what’s ahead. Also how could a Wolf resist a wolf?

At least I think it’s a wolf.

Here’s the deal: write a ten-word story prompted by the photo. You can have a title, but stick to the spirit of the exercise. Feel free to post in the comments or on your blog! If you do post on your blog, you can also drop a link in the comments so we can see your creation.

OK, here’s mine:

Some flailed in the forever winter. The wolf reigned supreme.

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.

It’s Ten World Photo Prompt Day!! Using the image above, craft a 10-word micro flash story. You can have a title, but as always, let’s not go crazy with them.

Feel free to post your masterpiece in the comments.

Here’s mine:

With the alien ship submerged, he’d need a bigger canoe.

Ten Word Photo Prompt: Reflection


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:


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