I’ve never tweeted in my life, but Kat Myrman’s wonderful challenge to tax our creativity is definitely worth trying it out. Just take her photo prompt and write a story, inspired by it, in 280 characters or fewer.
This week we have 3 prompts and I’m choosing to write a story for each one. Check out the rules, and all the fabulous entries here. If you’ve never had a go, why not try a story of your own? You may surprise yourself!

Let’s face it!
Peter, the pumpkin, was feeling really glum. You could see by the look on his face.
He’d been in this pile of pumpkins for 2 weeks now and, despite having worked his way up to the top and front of the pile, no-one had chosen him to be their Jack-o’-lantern for Halloween. Sad face!

An educated palate
The crows all knew that it was only a matter of time!
The boarding school was absolutely chock-a-block with small, tasty, children.
The birds were salivating with the sweet smell of young flesh, rising up on the thermals.
They had to come out soon.
It was only a matter of time!

The naturist tree huggers club had chosen their site really badly for this year’s convention.
The forest was mostly made up of young oak trees and the bark was really rough.
The opening “get to know your tree” dance resulted in multiple injuries and most members had to retire hurt!
