Each week a photo is used, donated by one of the participants of Sunday Photo Fiction, and the idea is to write a story with the photo as a prompt in around 200 words. The photo doesn’t have to be centre stage, there have been times when I have had to read the story a few times to spot where the prompt is hidden. Please include a mention and / or link to whoever donated the photo.
Careful editing is the key to keeping the story within the constrains of the limit. 200 words may seem like a lot, but it disappears quickly. The challenge makes you look at replacing two words with one, and a little jiggery pokery. A few words over is sometimes necessary when there is no way of shrinking it without losing an integral part of the story. Using a program like Microsoft Word or Open Office have a word counter so you can see how many you have used.
Once you have written and posted your story, please add the link to the inlinkz froggy icon below and add it to the collection so we can all have a read.
If I haven’t read your story by the time the next week starts, don’t panic, I will get to it. I can’t always visit every one in a week. Thank you for contributing though. Don’t stop as there are others who also like to read. And I don’t miss a story. Even if it takes me a week and a half to get to yours.

Good prompt Al, as shown by the range of stories it’s sparked. At first I thought 200 words wouldn’t be enough, but now I’m glad I didn’t have scope to go off on a rant. My pet hate with mobile phones is when parents ignore their own small children so that they can prattle into their phones to other parents, while they ignore their kids. What happened to bonding?

Pretty much. We didn’t have that many mobile phones when mine were little. It infuriates me how some parents can’t seem to grasp that their kids come first and then they wonder how come they have eaten the dog biscuits or worse,
