Microfiction Monday: The Secret of Novel Writing

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.




Bones was adamant. "Sir, if you wish to finish that novel, it's butt on chair. Or you'll end up like me: an unpublished buttless wonder."


You bet I'll be taking old Bones's advice! Have a great week everyone, and thanks for commenting. I look forward to visiting as many as I can.

  2. Doc McCoy didn't age very well. Was his novel about his life on the Enterprise. Nice one Michael.

  3. He's got to butt out that writer's block, just like Bones said. I called the skeleton Bones in mine, too, but I didn't copy you, honest.

  4. Poor Bones--I wonder how many other 'would-be writers' suffer his fate? Good one!

  5. Bones has a good idea here, Michael. I doubt he could sit anymore so no butt on the chair. More like hanger in the closet.
