Succinctly Yours Week 11

Grandma's Goulash at Succinctly Yours hosts this microfiction meme. Each week she posts a photographic prompt for inspiration and the challenge is to write a story using no more than 140 characters or words. Below is this week's photo followed by my offering.

  2. I'd say that definitely qualifies as a succinct story.

  5. Hi J.L. ~~ Too bad we can't have a better look at the symbol. I hope for her sake it makes her a winner.
    If she wins first place she should take the £25,000 and run.

  6. I bet she would win a prize at the Vancouver Art Gallery. They show the worst crap I have ever seen. By the way, I love the caption!

  8. It is a mystery as to what she has drawn. Hmmm...could it be the bottom line? I'm wondering how it could win a big award!?! Kudos to you for using the WOW.

  9. A clever twist turning a graph into an artwork! Good one!

  10. I drew a total blank on Turner Prize, so did the Google thing. I found an amazing array of art images. Could the graph with the mystery symbol win? Seems plausible. Interesting slant on this photo.

  12. A unique twist on the challenge, one can never guess what will pass for art.

  13. Is it art or is it not-that is the question. Okay, maybe not as funny as it was in my mind... Good take this week!
