Succinctly Yours - A Microfiction Meme #1........


In the absence of Susan at Stony River's Microfiction Monday Meme I am joining in Grandma's Goulash new microfiction Meme - Succinctly Yours.

Grandma provides a picture and a word prompt and the rules are use the photo as inspiration for a story of 140 characters OR 140 words.

Want more challenge? Use the word of the week in your story. This part is optional.

This week's word is CATER and here's the picture and my offering using both the picture and the word in 140 characters, including spaces and punctuation.




Ann’s search was over.

The cottage was the right size and price

but the main attraction was that it would cater to her dream of a sea view.

Ah the all-important sea view.

Nice one!

MorningAJ said...

Oooo. You found a new 140 character challenge. I might just have to join you in that.
Well done - specially for including the word of the week. That makes it much more difficult!

Grandma's Goulash said...

So far, we've all been focusing on the chair. How clever of you to see beyond to the lovely view. A good idea in real estate too.

Thanks so much for being a part of Succinctly Yours.

You can't beat a sea view. nice one.

Beach Bum said...

There is a real talent at crafting a story with such limits. Excellent job!

Calico Crazy said...

I love your take on this. So many things to consider when buying a house. ~ Calico Contemplations

Grandpa said...

That was simple enough. I don't mind the place and the view myself.

Akelamalu said...

Something the majority of us aspire to eh Scots Lass?

Cheers Dumdad:)

Oh yes, do join in AJ, the more the merrier!

It's interesting to learn what people see in the picture isn't it Grandma?. Thankyou to you for taking the time to organise SY.

You're so right Anthony

Why thankyou Beach Bum :)

Indeed Calico and I'm pleased you enjoyed it.

Me too Grandpa :)

Valerie said...

Another challenge taken with ease. Well done you.

G-Man said...

Great job Ake....
I'll have to think about playing .

C'nor (Outermost_Toe) said...

Interesting. And with the line "her dream of a sea view", one has to wonder: Is that simply something she wants, or has she dreamed about this view?

5thsister said...

My cabin would be in the mountains but other than that the same dream. Very nice take on the prompt.

Dianne said...

ahhhhh
to have a cottage of one's own
lovely

Pat said...

Excellent ! You used both the word of the day and 140 characters or less in an interesting story.

It's great to be back microfictioning, thatnks to Grandma!

Akelamalu said...

Aw thankyou Valerie x

Oh do join in G, you are so good at Microfiction.

Could be either C'nor, you decide. ;)

A cabin in the mountains sounds good too 5th sister!

That's your dream too eh Dianne?

Thanks Pat and thanks to Grandma too. :)

Ron said...

Once again, you ROCK, m'dear!

Awesome Microfiction! Ah...there's nothing like a ocean view!

I'm loving the graphic of Succinctly Yours. It's so cool-looking!

Happy Monday!

Daryl said...

Lovely .. she'll need to turn the chair 'round

Anyes said...

Focusing on the view, what a great idea :-)

Mama Zen said...

Well done!

Lisa Ricard Claro said...

It does look perfect, doesn't it? I'd stop searching, too!

Maggie May said...

Now she would have to turn her chair round to see the sea!

Nuts in May

This one's great! Perhaps it's the opener to a new Mystery book series called "Just Right," a modern-day take on Goldilocks and the Three Bears, where the since grown up blonde is now doing sleuthing with three industrious types that are somewhat grrrrowlly!

Soon we will be down to one-word memes!

Excellent!

Lynette Killam said...

How lovely! A cottage close to the sea is my own dream...:)

Great post!

Akelamalu said...

I agree, Grandma did a fantastic job with the Succinctly Yours graphic Ron. Glad you enjoyed it.

I think she'll get a new chair Daryl ;)

Thanks Anyes

Cheers Mama Zen

Yes it does Lisa

Of course that will be here first job when she moves in Maggie.

Great idea Sparkle Farkle, you could write it!


Now that would be a real challenge SAW!

Thanks Trav


Mine too Lynette :)

Linda said...

When I saw this meme over at Dianne's I just knew that it was perfect for you and here it is! Brilliant!

And I would SO love to have a view of the sea ...

Quilly said...

sigh I live on a teeny, tiny island, yet still didn't manage a sea view. I have to walk a half mile for that.

Has anyone heard from Susan since she abruptly disappeared? Do we just take her meme and go on as if nothing is amiss?

Spiky Zora Jones said...

akelamalu: How doyou do it? To be able to say so much in so few words. I think the view is lovely...and so are you. xxx

later sweetie.

Debora said...

I wish that was my real story! A little cottage by the sea is my dream...

Jinksy said...

Got here eventually! LOL
