Microfiction Monday: Bess's Bounty

Welcome to Microfiction Monday, at Stony River: a writing life, where a picture paints 140 characters, or even fewer.


[Hate counting letters and spaces? Try Design 215's character counter, which will count for you as you type. Microsoft Word will count for you too, of course, as part of its word count feature under the 'Review' tab.] Here's this week's picture, and my story to go with it:






Hearing the news of the British coalition, Bess decided to send a present to Cameron from her larder. He looked like he'd like canned fruit. (140 characters)

  3. I enjoyed your story too, very much.
    Seems like the Tory's and the liberals have it all worked out across the pond.
    Have a great evening.

  6. Now. Now. That press conference just confirmed that they WERE good friends only. And think that when Labour appoints a Milliband then all the major parties leaders will be male and pale and from the same private education and Oxbridge elite. Power to the people! My Twitter Story

  11. Would that be a SPECIAL delivery? And would the tomatoes be delivered IN or OUT of the jars? Inquiring minds want to know!
