Microfiction Monday


It's Microfiction Monday over at stony river. We are invited to write a story based on a select picture in 140 characters or less (including punctuation and spacing).

Dad has the camera. Stop squirming. Put on a good girl smile. We have to sneak on the train. Oh, this Rockette outfit is itchy!

Kelly's inner dancer surfaces again! I think you would make a great novelist. As I read your 140 characters, I wanted to know more about these girls!

Vicky said...

Your imagination floors me. How you go from that picture to the words you conjure up, oh my awesomeness. How long does it take you to do these? I think that is really what happened in this photo now. Have you seen the Rockettes... I so want to.

Thom said...

LOL...too funny. Can you imagine the Rocketts with those outfits? LOL Too funny. Great story. Have a good one :)

SwedishJenn said...

Good one! Love it!

Bill ~ {The Old Fart} said...

Nicely done, it does look like they are not comfortable standing there.

Trudy said...

That is funny...I just love it. The expressions on their faces are priceless and I could totally hear this conversation as I looked at it.

Nice work Kelly!

Pat said...

Those sly, daring girls must have been extremely slim in order to fit all those clothes on over their Rockettes outfits. This was a very cute story!

Jenners said...

The gal on the left doesn't seem to be Rockette material!!! Just saying!

Love your take on this one!

septembermom said...

Well, Jenners, the girl can dream, can't she? LOL.

septembermom said...

Pat, remember that Rockette outfits are usually not much material :)

welcome to my world of poetry said...

So very clever, it was excellent.

Ms.Daisy said...

T Rex Mom said...

I'd like to read the next 140 characters. That's a really interesting photo - I love old photos. Seems like a more civilized time.

"Jeanine told me my dress was a one-of-a-kind. Lovely."

History in the making, as in your modern literary thoughts on their vintage past.

A step back in time with microfiction humour.

Thank you. Love love, Andrew. Bye.

hope said...

They do have pretty legs!

KB said...

Haha, that must be why they look so tense. Nicely done.

Brenda Strausz said...

Sara, brings back memories! So very sweet!!!

The Write Girl said...

what a lovely tale...you really nailed the classic black and white photo. I enjoyed reading your tale Septembermom :)

Ellie said...

I like this one! It's so appropriate for the era they lived in. What a great microfiction.

p.s. I’m running a competition this week and holding a blogfest in November. If you get time, pop along and have a look.

Valerie said...

Love your take on this one. I wish my imagination would work as well.

Janna Qualman said...

Love!

Old photos are amazing.

Monica said...

i needed that chuckle. lol

glnroz said...

i love those old "candid" snapshots,, lol.. and this looonnnngggg story,, :)

Teresha@Marlie and Me said...

I like how you get into the minds of the characters and pull out something unexpected. They look so upper crust and boring. I wouldn't have thought to give them secret identities.

JamericanSpice said...

I love it! Perfect description in so many characters!

Beautiful photo also!

Jillien said...

hahaha. I wish i would have had the guts to do something like that ! this is a great MFM

Flory said...

Well done Kelly. Love your imagination! :)

Susan Fobes said...

Now this one would have been hard for me-good job Kelly!

Angela said...

I absolutely love your creativity with these!!! You have a way of looking at these weekly challenges in a way that I simply could not. Awesome!

Susan at Stony River said...

Okay, that's definitely the line of the week I think -- "Put on your good girl smile". I might borrow that! LOL
