I am enjoying this new-to-me form of creativity called “Twittering Tales.”
Every Tuesday, Kat Myrman shares a photo as a prompt.[bctt tweet=”Inspired by the photo, we write a story using only 140 characters or less.” username=”GaylWright”]You have all week to write your stories. Last week was my first time, and though it can be a challenge it’s a lot of fun.
The picture below has many possibilities, but it took me awhile to come up with something. First I’ll share two tiny stories, then another using Haiku.
“Why do YOU always get to write and have the espresso?”
“Hush, let me think. Drink your water.”
“That’s it, I’m leaving!”
“Wait! I’m sorry.”
“Another work day.
We talk, make our lists.
Where’s the fun?”
“Just checking off one more thing.
Our new assignment is exciting!
You’ll love it!”
Now the Haiku:
Drinks untouched again
Minds dwell on recent events
Can’t write fast enough
Do you remember
Last time we were together
There were three of us
(140 characters including title)
Join us over at Kat’s place to see what others have written and add your own, if you like.

I am so impressed Gayl! You got three totally different stories out of this week’s photo! Very nice! ~kat
Wow, Kat! Thanks so much for your encouraging comments!
Blessings to you!
Wow, Gayl, you’ve hit the ground running here! Beautifully expressed stories and verse. I’ve not been too well recently and needed to rest more over the last few days, so I may not get round to joining in this week. However, a few thoughts did flow for the FMF prompt today, for which I am truly grateful! I LOVE what you have done here. Great work, dear poet/writer friend! xox
Joy, thank you so much! Your encouragement means a lot to me. ? I haven’t written for FMF yet, but I hope to. Maybe you’ll also get a chance to do a Twittering Tale. ? I hope you are feeling better and that you are able to get the rest you need.
Many blessings to you dear sister! xoxoxo
These are really good and I think it is a great way to work on expanding your writing style. Way to stretch yourself.
Thanks so much, Amanda! Your words are very encouraging to me.
Blessings to you!
Bravo, Gayl! and congrats on the new site! Looking forward to watching your creativity blossom here!
Thank you so much, June! Your comments are encouraging. 🙂 I’m glad you stopped by.
Blessings to you and have a great week ahead!
