Succinctly Yours - A Microfiction Meme #16

Grandma at Grandma's Goulash provides a picture and a word prompt for this Microfiction Meme 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 RENEGADE here's the picture and my offering using both the picture and the word in 140 characters, including spaces and punctuation.

Rene Gade ran down the beach towards them.

Naturally they ignored her, until they realised the boat they’d been admiring belonged to her Dad!

 OK, so I cheated a little on word of the week.


Sharon J said...

Haha. Love the cheat :)

MorningAJ said...

It could have been the name of the boat, I guess.

Nice way round it though. and good for her for having a rich daddy!

Beach Bum said...

I cheat all the time and far worse on my word counts. Great job!

I like that very much; in a tongue in cheek way, it's a little typical of our society today!!

Valerie said...

That's really clever, even if it was cheating :o)

Akelamalu said...

Cheers Sharon ;)

Well having a rich daddy is one way of getting the boys' attention AJ ;)

You're just naughty Beach LOL

I agree it is CJ, glad you enjoyed it.

Thanks Valerie, I only cheated a little bit. ;)

Daryl said...

Cheated? No, you were clever!

Ron said...

"OK, so I cheated a little on word of the week."

I don't call it cheating. Rather, I call it taking literary license.

Akelamalu said...

Aw thanks Daryl x

You're too kind Ron, thankyou. x

Cheers Dumdad :)

I must remember that one Trav LOL

Maggie May said...

This one really had a ring of truth to it. Liked your clever use of the week's word. Let's hope Rene keeps her maiden name, if she marries. lol

nitebyrd said...

Nah, not cheating - creative writing! You do it so well!

Susan Fobes said...

Rene Gade-clever! (And you're right-money does buy "fair weather" friends.)

Elaine said...

Very good one - that gave me a smile!

secret agent woman said...

Maybe she'll grow up to be a renegade.

Empress Bee (of the high sea) said...

oh yeah, i can totally see that happening!

smiles, bee

Lisa Ricard Claro said...

You didn't cheat, you got creative! :)

Helen said...

Tee-hee - cute cheat! Nice story!


Anonymous said...

Never would have thought to use the word of the week for the name. Very clever.

Jim said...

I like your 'cheating' all the way! Google tells me that there are actual people with that name.
Even small people perk up with the mention of money.

CrystalChick said...

That was a very creative cheat so therefore totally acceptable! :)

Akelamalu said...

Well I struggled this week Maggie, hence the cheat. ;)

Glad you liked it Grandma. :)

Why thankyou for the compliment Nitebyrd x

Yes indeed money can do that for sure Susan!

I'm happy to make you smile Elaine x

I bet she does SAW

Me too Bee!

Aw thanks Lisa x

Cheers Helen :)

Thankyou tanyavalentine :)

There's actually people called Rene Gade Jim? WOW

Well thankyou CrystalChick, I'm glad it's acceptable. LOL

Pat said...

Well, you get partial extra credit for Rene Gade! Thanks for the laugh! There are indeed those people who want to be friends with certain other people because of what they can get from them.

Akelamalu said...

Thanks for the extra credit Pat x
