MicroFiction Monday

Susan at Stony River Farm hosts Microfiction Monday. She posts a picture and you compose a story in 140 characters. You can click on the link under the title to get further instructions. To help you along she has posted a wonderful link that counts your characters for you! How great is that! You can get the counter at Design 215.


This meme is easy and it's fun! Thanks, Susan for hosting.

And here's the picture for the day!

Shaking all over she left his office and entered the empty hall. Freedom!
Who knew what was beyond that door, but she knew she could do it!


And for one of the few lighter looks at the pic of the day -- welcome my friend from Mumbai!

On your mark, go! Those who skate to the far end without stopping for pizza and icecream outside open doors, will be awarded a special prize!

Sylvia;

I believe she can do it.
Great take like usual.
You didn't go funny or too serious.
Uplifting! have a wonderful week my friend.

She is going to git away. There is light at the end of the Hall. Another good one Sylvia, a wonderful week is wished for you.

Diane said...

Keep putting one foot in front of the other and I'm sure she can too. :O)

Judy Sheldon-Walker said...

Great take, Sylvia. I look forward to this challenge.

I'm rooting for her! She can do it!

KB said...

Yay, she can do it. Great take, Sylvia. Have a wonderful week.

Mama Zen said...

She can do it!

Pat said...

Ah, great start for a novel, Sylvia! Now I want to know who "he" is and what she is going to do next!

Michael G-G said...

I love her spunk, Sylvia. An excellent MM for the week!

Hope your week goes well.

Sylvia,
I loved the hope that your story provided with this somewhat somber picture! I know she will make it where ever she ends up!

I love new beginnings. And how brave she is. It made me like her.

Good one, Sylvia. I haven't been able to come up with anything I like for Microfiction in quite a while, but I like yours!

This has me thinking she has just escaped a painful marriage, or...? Very unique Sylvia!

Reflections said...

Uplifting words for such a desolate hallway.

I love this. You are the best!

Jim said...

Being held in a place like that would make one crazy indeed!
Excellent take, Slyvia. And welcome, Friend.
..
BTW, to both you and your friend, I hope your characters make it to freedom.

a lovely positive take!!

Rinkly Rimes said...

I can almost feel the spring in her step!

Vicki said...

What relief and excitement she must feel to be free of such a place. You can almost see her racing to the door to embrace a new existence.
Great take!

SparkleFarkle said...

Good one! Very effective: if I listen closely, I think I can hear Johnny and the Pirates singing:

When you move in right up close to me
That's when I get the shakes all over me

Quivers down my backbone
I got the shakes down my knee bone
Yeah the tremors in my thigh bone
Shakin' all over!

Priyanka Bhowmick said...

that was Bravo! at least she got the guts :) .. great MFM!!

jabblog said...

I wonder what caused her to make the decision to leave?
The second one made me smile:-)

Greyscale Territory said...

Inspiring! The endless corridor really leads to a somewhere of significance!

anthonynorth said...

These are very different but loved them both.

Madeleine said...

Great lightweight micros for such an eerie image :O)

Ellen Brickley said...

Sylvie, that reminds me of the end of the Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath. Great entry!

And I love the hall-skating idea. A very different take on the picture!

Serline said...

No matter how I try to shake it, this still looks like a scene from a horror movie, and your micro fiction piece doesn't help... who's that behind door number 2? Leatherface? Jason? Freddy Krueger?

Hi Sylvia,
I could lose myself for hours on your blog. I see that you love the same things I do, photography, writing, and animals. Please sign on as a follower on my blog. I just signed on to follow you. http://lindaoconnell.blogspot.com/

skates and freedom! good choices. Thanks-

Kelley said...

Mumbai wins the uplifting prize today! Yippee!

Ashling said...

Your story genuinely told a story, and I wanted more. And Mumbai's was fun!

Grandma's Goulash said...

The MM's find both hope and lightheartedness in the photo, a real challenge that was well met.

My MM: Escape

hope said...

Ah, freedom from work sounds like a good thing! And I always think that for every Boss who said, "We have to let you go" that person is yelling on the inside, "No, I let YOU people go!"

Have a great week.

G-Man said...

I dunno, that floor looks slippery...:-)

imaginationlane said...

So well done, Sylvia...love that there's a light at the end of the tunnel! That's the way to approach life's challenges...:)

Kay said...

I love this! It's so free and uplifting!

Ruthi said...

I won't surely get a prize for either one of the 2 reasons. I can't skate or I will surely stop for pizza or ice cream.

sylviamorice said...

Loved them both, Sylvia! Nice take on this week's picture. It was a difficult one.
Cheers~

Margaret said...

Yes, if she can get out of that place, anything will seem possible! :)

Karen said...

Your friend's is definitely the lightest (& fun!) take I've seen for this microfiction, but I think yours is hopeful and looking up! :>

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
