My Blog SCRIBBLE AND EDIT reflects my love of creative writing, design, literature and film. Check out my Poems & haiku, Romantic Flash Fiction; Blogfest Entries; Blog Awards and other prose and Flash Fiction. Do bear with me, as I will reciprocate with those genuine commenters on my blog.  BTW I sometimes withhold comments for challenges until later. Comments about the post are much appreciated. Thank you.
Comments based on others' comments can lead to misunderstandings that spread like whispers!

The only SURE way for me to follow you back is if you leave a comment. However, if your Blog has a black background and white writing then it makes my eyes squiffy...

Micro Fiction Monday#5

Susan from Stony River, set us another great
picture for this Monday's Microfiction Challenge
"Where a picture paints 140 characters, or even fewer."
This is my no 5 of 50.
Lost in the serenity of the sea, Mary Lou watched the scudding clouds beyond the distant hills and forgot all the troubles in her world. (137 characters with spaces)

Ripples in the breeze,
Wide open expanse of sea,
Tranquility reigns.

Micro Fiction is provocative fiction that requires tight analysis and editing. Taking an idea and distilling it into a microcosm of its original self is the challenge. The form is strictly prose. I regard it as the prose equivalent of a Haiku in poetry,  (traditionally 5, 7, 5 syllables)

For me it provides some great editing practice.
