Microfiction Monday: The Ponkey Whisperer

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.

For Erasmus, it was just more bad luck. His "The Ponkey Whisperer" should have been a bestseller. But some twit beat him to it with a horse!

Have a marvelous week, everyone. And may Susan bring some sunshine to our soggy Pacific Northwest.


  1. Clutched right from Erasmus's Grasp. This was good Michael, Maybe Erasmus should be Glad, it wasn't much of a Movie.

  2. Another good story bites the dust. There is no justice!
    A good one, I enjoyed it very much.

  3. OMG! This is terrific, and yep, another good story bites the dust! Great laugh for the evening, Michael!!


  4. ROFLMAO!!! TWIT Love it. This is excellent. Those damn horses LOL :) Have a great week ahead :)

  5. Oh my goodness, too funny. How could this twit rob Erasmus' stardom with a horse. Have a marvelous week, too :).

  6. Ah, the fate of so many writers :-)
    Nice one.

  7. Those darn publishers! They sit on a good idea until some fancy-schmancy more-Hollywood type shows up! We FEEL for Erasmus!

  8. Excellent, Michael.
    Poor Erasmus.
    Have you an awesome week!

  9. Brilliant. Those darn horses! Loved it.

  10. But he could write the Ponkey Trial. Oh wait hasn't that been done? Yes I know it's Wednesday but my employer unreasonably expected me to work on Monday and Tuesday so no time free except to sleep and even that down to 5-6 hours! Inspired by Shakespeare this week. My Micro Story
