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 everyone else can enjoy it as well.

The main object is to have fun.

  1. Hi Al, Sorry I was incommunicado for so long. I was very busy over the holidays with family stuff and had to put writing and especially blogging on the back burner for a while. But now I’m back! Hope you enjoyed your holidays, and that it’s not too terribly cold there.

    1. Thanks Joy. I am having trouble at the moment dealing with my blogging life and my new venture I am trying to start up which is coming on in leaps and bounds. I haven’t been able to read many of the stories. I try to get to some each day but I am lagging further and further behind with them. I have started “streaming” which is broadcasting gameplay, and while it sounds like it is just playing games and having people watch, it is so much more than that. I am trying to juggle at the moment with wet hands. I’ll get it though.

      I hope you had a great time and you are feeling refreshed. Hopefully with warm days.

      1. It’s always hard to get a new venture going, especially balancing it with the rest of your life. Good luck getting into your new groove and figuring out all these new challenges! I am definitely enjoying warmer days here in southern CA than most of the rest of my country is, so I feel lucky about that . Busy with work and other life things, but then, when am I not? Hope you’re having a good week, and that you eventually get to read all the blogs and stories you want to. Take care!
