I am happy to say that Sunday Photo Fiction will carry on after April. Susan has agreed to take over from the first Sunday in May. I think this will be in great hands, and I will be working behind the scenes with her for a couple of weeks while she finds her footing.


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. Although I haven’t posted on this challenge for a while, I’d like to publicly thank Al for his commitment to this project. It’s a great platform for writers, not just to post their work, but also to interact with each other. Al’s comments have always been warm and encouraging. I wish him all the best for the future, and look forward to Sunday Photo Fiction’s continued success. Thank you! Steve Lakey

  2. I’m so glad to hear that Susan has graciously volunteered to take over the Sunday Photo Fiction challenge! Thank you Susan!

    And thank you, again, to Alastair, for taking such good care of us all these years, and doing such a wonderful job of being friendly and supportive and encouraging. You are leaving big shoes for Susan to fill!

  3. So glad to hear this Al. I considered offering to step in once more as a stop gap, but I am confident Susan will be a great caretaker and keep SPF going strong for a long time.
