About Me

My photo

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...

Mexican Microfiction

Are you a Microfiction Writer?
It's certainly good practice for putting what you want to say as succinctly as possible.
A great editing exercise.

Susan from Stony River sets a weekly
Challenge Picture each Monday,
where a picture paints 140 characters, or even fewer.

I wonder what comes to mind for you when you see this week's  image?    And whether it is very different from mine:

Mushroom eating Jas was having a strange cartoon character moment. The stupid hat and poncho were one thing, but waders!  (121 characters with spaces)

or
Unaware that the camera crew was heading for home behind him, Marc held his C&A man pose. (89 characters with spaces)


Today we have bitter cold and frost here in the UK; nothing like the sun and dry desert shown in the picture above.
