Microfiction Monday 68


Once again, Susan at Stony River has posted a picture for Microfiction Monday - the challenge is to write a piece of fiction in 140 characters or fewer.

Here's my entry this week - I found it really hard for some reason!

Jack would be pleased when this newfangled photography took off. Posing for oil paintings just to advertise soap took ages.

  14. Excellent! I've only just found the micro-fiction Monday and think it's a great idea. I'd love to join in next week.

    Also, was having a quick browse through your previous posts; I love, love, love Blackadder! Did you know the first series opening credits were filmed at Alnwick Castle, near where I live?! I expect you'll sleep tonight now you know that!

    Best wishes, CJ xx
