Participants are asked to tell a story about the prompt photo in either 140 words or 140 characters.
It's not that I'm not longwinded. I certainly am. However, I'm trying to learn not to overwrite, and a challenge such as this is a good exercise in enforced brevity, so when I'm here I like to use only 140 characters.
There is also a Word of the Week, the use of which is up to the writer. This week's word is myriad.
|Photo provided as prompt|
22 words, or 110 characters
Although there aren't any bonus points for using the word of the week, because Succinctly Yours doesn't offer points, only participant satisfaction, I'm willing to offer kudos to commenters who can tell me which of Grandma's rules I actually have broken here. (And yes, I know it's a black and white photo with a bit of retouching, but that would have used too many characters.)
