Microfiction Monday



Susan at Stony River hosts Microfiction Monday. View the photo, write a story -- in 140 characters or fewer. That includes spaces and punctuation. It's challenging, it's fun, and it's easy to read everyone else's because they're SHORT!

Enjoy!


With apologies to Mark Twain.

“Huck, I’m tellin’ you my Aunt Polly’s on t’other side fixed on civilizin’ us!”

“Shucks, that ain’t no challenge, Tom! Ready? Dive!”

There's nothing wrong with being inspired by Mark Twain! I"m sure he'd be flattered.

I love your characters. Great idea! Have a great week!

LOL! Perfect! It's funny how many of us had a dark and eerie take on it: this is one of the few fun ones. We also both took a literary turn with it.

Precisely the kind of story I'd hear if my little brother saw the picture! How fun to have it tell a tall tale and conjure up Huck Finn! Well done.

Cheers

It's so cool how many childhood storybook characters have found their way under this bridge!

Well done!
