Continuing in the tradition of Monday's Succinctly Yours microfiction, we have a special photo prompt for this week, and the word of the week, chosen by someone who hasn't seen the picture, is "neutral"!
The secret of Succinctly Yours is for participants to look at the picture and write a story about it...a short story of 140 words or less, or a short-short story of 140 characters or less, including spaces and punctuation.
I usually submit only one 140-character story, but for the festive season I have chosen a multiple option, one of which uses the word of the week.
1. Ho, ho, ho, Merry Christmas! (28 characters including spaces and punctuation) 77 total
2. ¡Feliz Navidad! (15 characters, for those who speak Spanish) 60 total
3. Joyeux Noel! (12 characters, for those who speak French) 56 total
4. Season's Greetings! (for those who prefer a neutral approach) 61 total
And to all, a Good Night!
