Twittering Tale #50 – 19 September 2017


About the challenge: Each Tuesday I will provide a photo prompt. Your mission, if you choose to accept the challenge, is to tell a story based on that prompt in 140 characters or less. 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 a new prompt. Have Fun!

From Michael at Morpethroad:
Behind each door a separate story.
Fears, conciliation, celebration.
A boy cries in room 3
A girl laughs in room 5
A microcosm of our society.

a place to recuperate

She ran.

So many scenarios happening behind the doors of this beautiful hotel. Terror, murder, aliens, monsters, love lost, betrayal, romance, philosophical reflections…and even interior decorating. Bravo everyone! Be sure to visit each other’s sites via the links provided. 😉

This week I found this nice photo of a crossroads in the woods by keywest3 at Which way would you choose? Does it matter? Or do we make the best of what we find at the end of whichever choice we make. Sorry…I’m letting my random stream of consciousness spill out all over the challenge. I’m sure you will figure this photo out without my help. Remember 140 characters. You have a week. I’ll meet you back here next week at the Roundup. Ready, set…go!

Oh…Almost forgot! This Twittering Tale is NUMBER 5-0! I’m so happy that you’re still twittering here with me. Thank you for all the fabulous shorts and here’s to many more! 🙂
