Twittering Tale #54

Kat’s challenge is to write a story with 140 characters or less using the above photo prompt. My first attempt at this challenge.  The image inspired me to make an attempt.


You told me to run for the old cabin.

It’s so dark and cold in here. Where are you?

Waiting is torture.

Wish I hadn’t lost my phone in the bog.

  * After posting this, I found out a ‘space’ is a character, so I kind of flubbed this challenge initially and went over the “character” count. I tried!

  • The next day, I deleted my last two lines and voila, I had a character count of exactly 140. Did it change the story line? A tiny bit.
  • Last two lines: What’s that sound? No!!!


About Olga

I have always had an affinity for artistic endeavors and the beauties of nature. The power of the word combined with photography have become my creative spark.

    I didn’t know that spaces were characters. I use Word’s counter and don’t know what it counts. Nice little tale.

    Before reading the last 2 lines, I thought ‘ this is scary’, and you really meant it. I have invited you to join the B&W challenge. Please check the post here:

      I’m glad that my tale grabbed your attention. Thanks for the invite. Just a few questions before I decide. Can I use archived material that’s never been posted? Can I participate, if I can’t find anyone to invite, since a lot of bloggers I follow have already been invited? 🙂 🙂
