If you accept the challenge, be sure to let me know in the comments with a link to your tale. A final note: if you need help tracking the number of characters in your story, there is a nifty online tool that will count for you at charactercountonline.com.
I will do a roundup each Tuesday, along with providing us a new prompt.
Have Fun! 🙂
Here are the results for Twittering Tales #7 based on this photograph from last week:
-From Sonali at Howling with the Wolf:
I wonder what expression he has right now.
The soft teardrop on the page answered his wife’s question on her last entry.
Reading the book brought him up short.
It was as he always thought,
The truth he sort .
The book fell his body taught.
Too late the truth.
( Character count 138)
-From Michael at Morpethroad:
He came to the difficult part. His abuse. His children knew nothing. Should he omit it? Pretend it never happened. Bury it forever? Dilemma.
-From kiwinana (Elsie) at Ramblings of a Writer:
Have I cut enough firewood today?
I have run out of energy but I must keep the boss happy
Would prefer to read this novel today instead.
-From Kathryn at another foodie blogger:
“I have one more cord of wood to split before the cold freeze hits. Do I meet my honey for this dinner in my planner, or…?”
To be or not to be?
Do I take it or not?
What will happen if I don’t?
Will I be given a second chance?
Or will I let my life be the same?
–From Pat at Black Cat Alley:
The shock of the find – her “big little black book” exists – and it was clear, she used it still – a hot date tonight – not with him.
-From Lorraine’s Frilly Freudian Slip:
He despaired of conveying the strange nature of his life story in a twitter-like format. So much to say and he was such a lousy self-editor.
-From Itena at books ans hot tea:
He sat under his childhood tree, hoping he’d find inspiration for his novel. He was ready. Painful memories of the past welcomed him home.
-and my take:
He found the journal in her dresser. As he read the words she wrote about “him” his heart broke. He wondered, “Should I tell them I know?”
Wow! What an awesome collection of tales. Thanks to everyone who played last week! If I missed your entry, please let me know so I can add it to the roundup.

Twittering Tales #8 – 13 December 2016
Nothing warmed her heart more than a crackling fire, hot cocoa and a few banned books to burn; freedom of speech and expression be damned.
