Twittering Tales #10 – 27 December 2016


About the challenge: Each Tuesday I will provide a prompt, and your mission, if you choose to play along, is to tell a story based on that prompt in 140 characters or less.

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

I will do a roundup each Tuesday, along with providing us a new prompt.

Have Fun!🙂


Here are the results for Twittering Tales #9 based on this photograph from last week:

We had some great stories this week and a few new entries as well. Thanks to everyone who joined in the fun! Here’s the roundup!

First to join in was Lorraine from the blog frilly freudian slip:

Seeking to bust the myth that no two waves were the same, they braved the tsunami forgetting it’s snowflakes that are unique.
(126 Characters)

New to the bunch is Joy from the blog Poetry Joy.

Impervious to choppy seas
sun-dappled breeze and
waves crashing around
they smiled blissfully
knowing all back home
would seethe with jealousy
(140 Characters)

From Elsie at Ramblings of a Writer:

Got that one, perfect picture of that windsurfer surfing that wave. Viewed only another wave coming in. Laziness photographing doesn’t pay.
(139 Characters)

From Kathryn at Another Foodie Blogger:

Because we were so focused on the selfie stick, we didn’t see the ominous fin rising out of the water. His foot was never found.
(128 Characters)

From Sonali at Howling With The Wolf:

Fear of the ocean
His eyebrows raised
Arm around her shoulders,
A quiet whispered “You’ll be fine”
Camera flash
Love replaces Fear
(150 Characters)

From Michael at Morpethroad:

On holiday we love a selfie. Seconds later we were engulfed. She disappeared under the foam. Emerged bedraggled, but I saved the camera.
(136 Characters)

From The Bag Lady, another new face at the table:

Caption: Boyfriend pretends to take a photo with selfie stick, but actually getting the nude bathing beauty on shore.
(117 Characters)

From Pat at Black Cat Alley:

Dental floss is for my teeth, not up my ass crack, she fumed.

Crabs in my crotch, he spumed.

Sand between the toes?

Smile! Smile! Smile!
(139 Characters)

…and from me:

It seemed like a good idea. They would wait for the perfect moment to snap a selfie. But the waves were larger than they thought!
(129 Characters)

Some of you were VERY creative! I loved these stories! See you next week!

“She got away, dad.”

“Well son, years from now you’ll remember her bigger than life when you tell it.”

“I doubt it. She wasn’t the one.”
