Medieval Micro Fiction Monday

Susan from Stony River set us another great
picture for this Monday's Microfiction Challenge
"Where a picture paints 140 characters, or even fewer."

Eve wished she had more than 2 loaves and a jug of mead to sustain her until she finished the cataloguing of King Arthur’s library. (131 characters with spaces)

Well they looked like books he was carrying to me LOL!

An alternative viewpoint
Red flowing tresses
The maiden awaits her fate
A prisoner now.


  1. You are obviously an optimist! And I'm not sure I'd cry too much about being locked away with a stack of books, so I guess her boss is doing her a favor. Good one!

  2. he he I thot those were bricks and she was being sealed in so that Lancelot could not get it lol

  3. I love the idea of this, words inspired by the artwork. Nicely done!

  4. Cataloging can be a task, that's for sure!! What a fun take on the pic of the day! Have a great week!


  5. I much prefer you take that there are books there instead of bricks. Being walled up with hundreds of books might not be so bad! :)

  6. Either way, it's not looking good for her.... :O)

  7. That's a big job! Great microfiction.

  8. Books. I never thought of books. Good one.

  9. This is a unique take on the picture! I laughed a lot. Good one!

  10. I agree with you--books would be much better than bricks...I hope the princess finishes her task quickly, though, and doesn't drink all the mead first!

    Have a great week. Cheers!

  11. I like the first one best - glad to hear there's nothing too sinister about her situation... :)

  12. Such vivid pictures with so few words. Well done!

  13. Madeleine,
    Such a fun take on this MM - I never thought of books instead of bricks! I love it!


  14. And I thought they were pizzas! Thanks for following!

  15. Thanks everyone. I confess I had no idea what to write for this one at first, but then the detail spoke to me and I was away. :O)

  16. Good one! Food for the mind is all well and good, but a girl needs food for the tummy, too!
