Microfiction

microfiction # 24
Susan, at http://www.stonyriver.ie/
hosts a weekly writing prompt

                                                              Using the below photo
                                           write something using only 140 character or less
                                              Quite a challenge....why not try it yourself?



Family ruins,not the kind you cast
but the kind you're given
Cast before you were born
Like it or not,the foundation
of your own house

-138-
characters

  1. Ooh, I really like this. Your ancestry, and especially your parents, are the foundation for your future. Good one, Suz!

  4. Ok, Suz. I tried it. But counting your characters I got much less than 138. What am I missing?? I had a hell of a time getting the photo and words to line up on my blog. And forget about the Micro/Mon logo....Jeez I couldn't get anything to line up properly....

    Anyway, hope I did the writing part right. Some direction will be appreciated!

    Thanks...Rick

  8. Another one of your stories that makes me stop and think, especially as I'm having problems with a family member at the moment.

    As always, a brilliant microfiction.

  9. Oh I like this. You cram so much into just 138 characters. It could be the plot of a book - a whole series of books : there is so much truth in there.
