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 200 words or less. Careful editing will keep your words within the confines of the 200 word limit. 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.

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. A few of the stories have been going way over the limit. Please try to keep the stories within the 200 word limit.

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.

The main object is to have fun.

Please acknowledge the photographer if it isn’t mine when you post your story.
Thanks very much.

  1. Interesting prompt, Al! I’m not sure how I would have worked that into Eneana, but it’s a moot point this week. I’m working on NaNoWriMo this month so I’m focusing 100% on the novel and not doing any flash fiction. Just wanted to say Hi and have fun with the stories!

      1. Thanks, Al – so far, so good. I took a couple days off work and I’m trying to front-load my word count because I know I’ll have about two weeks’ of days where I can’t write much or at all later in the month. Besides, I work best by putting *everything* aside and just focusing on one project. So far I’m already at 24K, on day 4 — woot woot, as the kids say!
