Microfiction: Kids in Charge
My internet is back! Yay! I’ll be catching up on last Friday’s book blurbs and reading today’s microfiction. Looks like another busy day.
Grandma’s Goulash graciously hosts Succinctly Yours, the wonderful meme for those of us addicted to microfiction. The trick is to write a story in 140 characters or less using the photo below as inspiration. To add to the challenge is the word of the week, “beneficial.” My stories are below.
“Stand back,” Mia told Billy. “I’ll stomp that bug flat!” “Wait, that’s no spider,” said Billy. “It’s an M&M. I call three second rule!” (137 characters)
The duck looked like a stuffed toy. How beneficial that it was really a recorder that captured Ed and Em’s plot to take over the universe. (140 characters)
Fitting in the word of the week was a real challenge this time around. I’m looking forward to seeing how the other microfiction participants handled it.
See you Wednesday!
