Creatively Cool

My blog buddy, Becky Povich, offered up a link to Microfiction Monday, where “a picture paints 140 characters, or even fewer.”  Becky’s blog links up to Susan at Stony River, who hosts Microfiction Monday. She posts a picture and our job is to compose a story in 140 characters or less. For further instructions, click on Susan at Stony River.  There are also links to other bloggers who have joined in the fun, so you can read their stories, too, and maybe find a cool new blog along the way.
Here’s this week’s picture, followed by my story for it :
I’ll never baby-sit cherubs again! The little imps play star tag and slide away on moonbeams. Ooh, just wait ’til their Father gets home! (139 characters)

Feeling creative? Give it a try.  You’ll have fun in 140 characters or less. . .I promise!  (Thanks Becky!)

Just for fun –

    Hi Donna – It is fun to read what other writers saw in the picture. Becky has done this before, but I'm a newbie. 🙂
