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).

When the words wouldn’t fall onto her waiting page, the awakened writer knew that the sea breeze would quietly suggest the next direction.

Enjoy your Monday!

The sea is a good muse. Nice story.

David said...

What is it about being in nature that helps to clear the cobwebs and debris from our lives? You've captured that idea well.

Love it, Mom. I hope she took her sketch pad or notebook. Those ideas come fast. :)
I carry my little black moleskin and camera at all times. That's what blog writing has done for me.

Nature allows one to relax and then the muse sometimes starts working again.

It is something about the calm of nature that seems to pull out the best of our creativity. Love it.

Sioux Roslawski said...

Sometimes all it DOES take is a few moments to pause, and our muse DOES help us out.

Jinksy said...

Any way the wind blows, eh? :)

Hopefully, I can stop by and read it when I'm feeling a little stronger.

I wanted to stop by some of my closest bloggy friends to say hello and thank you SO VERY MUCH for remaining so faithful during this time that I have been so sick and, thus, unable to read and comment faithfully on all the blogs of those who mean so much to me. Please know that I do miss you all AND reading your blog. Most of all, though, I just miss keeping in touch with what is going on in your life! I am hoping and praying that will change really soon.

In the meantime, I hope you will continue to stop by and read what I am able to post and leave comments as you feel led to. They mean more to me than you'll ever know!

I hope the rest of you week is truly wonderful.

Blessings,

Teresa <><

I told the hubby that I need to pop down to to Myrtle Beach for inspiration. *sigh* He didn't think so. :)

I love your words. The sea has inspired many a writer. Just look at Ernest Hemingway. Did wonders for him. :)

Teresha@Marlie and Me said...

nice one. If I lived near water, I would be inspired too!

Michelle said...

Oh to have a sea nearby to go visit.... I could use some gentle suggestions :)

Jenn@the loves of jenn said...

Gerri said...

Yes, I love sitting in nature...Ahhh, this was very refreshing my friend. ;)
