Microfiction Monday: Word Playground

Posted on Oct 18, 2010 by Lisa Ricard Claro   26 Comments | Posted in meme · microfiction

Microfiction Monday is here—a whole story in 140 characters or less.  Thanks, as always, to Susan at Stony River for hosting this fun meme!  My stories are below:


She awoke, gasping. The dream recurred—heart pounding, the scrape of brick on brick; uncertainty. 
Was she being imprisoned or set free?
Solid Advice

“Why?” She cried. 
“The king said you asked to pray solitary.” 
“I asked to play solitaire!” 
“Were I you,” he advised, “I’d learn to do both.”
I wish everyone a great Monday! 
If you didn’t read yesterday’s post, please scroll down and have a look. I am proud to have been included in the WOW-Women on Writing blog tour to promote the awareness and prevention of breast cancer.
See you next time –

    I can relate to that dream. I often awaken, gasping, wondering what is real, no fun at all. Doctor at sleep disorders clinic at UBC didn't even want to discuss it.I like your second one, too, especially the last line.Kay, Alberta

    I enjoyed the first one the most because I didn't think of her being set free.
