Twittering Tales #24


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!

Wow! Thanks everyone for taking part in last week’s twitter tales! You all just get better and better at this! If for some reason I missed your tale in the round up, please let me know so I can add you.
This week’s prompt is a photo from that I have looked at several times. There are a few possibilities with this one I think. Can’t wait to see what you come up with.  Have Fun!
