Succinctly Yours - A Microfiction Meme #37


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 DREAM here's the picture and my offering using the picture and word of the week  in 140 characters, including spaces and punctuation.


In her dreams, Ann was a film star, a celebrity, famous.

In reality she was a wife, mother, sister, daughter.

She knew which she’d rather be.

That's lovely. I think we all know whether we'd prefer our reality or our dream version of life.

I think we do AJ ;)

Thanks Cloudia x

Valerie said...

Nice to have our heads in the clouds sometimes, but it's not as rewarding as reality.

Shrinky said...

I think we all lead two lives, the one we have, and the one in our head!

anthonynorth said...

Ah, so very true.

Ron said...

"She knew which she’d rather be."

Beach Bum said...

Great writing!

For me its those impossible dreams that allow me to blow off steam.

silverthoughts2 said...

She does look pretty content with her actual roles. :)

Melanie said...

that is so me!! and i am so glad i made the choices i did!!

Akelamalu said...

That was the idea Trav ;)

Thanks Beach, and I know what you mean.

She certainly does silverthoughts2 :)

It's good that you're happy with your choices Melanie x

SparkleFarkle said...

Oo! Oo! Oo! I love a good mystery! Who would Ann rather be???

Akelamalu said...

You can decide SparkleFarkle :)

cheshire wife said...

She's part way there. She's got the shades on.

Pat said...

Isn't that the truth--being wife, mother, sister, daughter is infinitely more satisfying than being famous. I'm assuming that's what Ann was thinking. Very sweet!

Grandma's Goulash said...

"She knew which she'd rather be"

I'm guessing that could vary from day to day.

I really enjoyed the story and the ending, which is open to interpretation. Lovely!

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

smiles, bee

A Lady's Life said...

I rather be the second. You can always be a star at home lol

Akelamalu said...

Ah yes, the shades Cheshire Wife, can't be famous without them. LOL

I think that's what she was thinking Pat ;)

I did leave it open to interpretation Grandma, it's up to you. x

Thanks Bee x

That's true Lady's Life :)

Daryl Edelstein said...

Oh poor Ann .. she needs to wake up and realize she can be everything!

Banker Chick said...

It is good to dream, I still do sometimes, you never get to old and grey to dream.

Flowerpot said...

I do too!

Akelamalu said...

I think she is, in her own mind /Daryl ;)

You're right BankerChick, it is good to dream. :)

Good for you Flowerpot x

nitebyrd said...

LOL! I know which I'd rather be, too!

Kay L. Davies said...

I would hate to be a famous film star. I would have liked to be a mother, though.
So it's true, everyone has their own dream.

secret agent woman said...

I love that you didn't say which one.

Akelamalu said...

Me too Nitebyrd

I feel blessed to be a mother Kay, never wanted to be a film star.

I leave it to my readers to decide SAW ;)

CrystalChick said...

Good one!
Depends on the day as to which one I'd rather be. ;)
