Micro Fiction Monday


I am joining Susan at Stony River for Micro Fiction Monday. Please check out her blog and read what others have to say. Come up with a 'story' using 140 characters or less.

Al stood in the hall, peeled dry cracked paint off the walls and chipped away at his own bitter thoughts. So many doors had been shut in his life. Another one is about to slam. (138 characters)

I hope this doesn't post twice, but it looks as if the first one didn't "take"! Great job, Linda! Is this your first Micro Fiction Monday? I remember urging you to try it sometime!

I had to try this meme as soon as I read your response...think how hard it would be, to walk down that hall, knowing that the next door would slam.

Excellent microfiction! And it's fun, isn't it? :)

Linda, I loved this! I can just picture Al in the hallway, and the mystery here would keep me reading for sure! Following right back :)

Thanks for sharing your microfiction. I like the use of the word "bitter." Also you got me wondering what happens next!

"Chipped away at his own bitter thoughts"...a marvellous description...makes me want to hear more of the tale! This is my first time on Microfiction Monday, but I can tell I'm going to enjoy it...:)

Hi everyone,
Welcome to all of my new followers. This exercise was really fun. Took a bit of thought, but I did it, and I shall return. Thanks for stopping by, encouraging me (Becky) and for your supportive comments.

Poor Al--I hope he manages to recover! Great MM this week. Cheers~

Aw, poor Al. Hope he can find a way to crack a door open and stick his foot in there soon!

Microfiction Monday is an addicting meme. I only started seven weeks ago, but haven't missed one since jumping in! :>
