Microfiction Monday #19

Susan at 'Stony River' devised the brilliant challenge of writing a story in 140 characters. Each week she provides a picture to act as inspiration and the rest is up to . . . fate? Click here to read more – and why not join in? It's fun!
They didn't know how to tell her she hadn't tuned her lyre. Even worse was that she couldn't sing either! Eye contact was impossible.


  1. lol. oh dear. she can turn away but can't close her ears. lol.
    lovely take on the picture. have a great week.

  2. Oh, my! This is wonderful and you are very clever. Laughing, you've started my week out in the best possible way.

  3. Oh, the torture they're under :-)
    Nicely done.

  4. I always think harp (lyre) music is sweet, maybe not so much!
    Never thought of going this way, what a surprise for me!
    Have a good week and see you next time.

  5. Oh, what a fun take on the pic for the day, Janice! I love it! Hope you have a great week! Don't forget to tune your lyre!!!


  6. The thought of an out-of-tune lyre makes me cringe!

  7. Oh how many times in life do we do this kind of thing. LOL Poor thing must be tone deaf. :) Well done. Happy MM :)

  8. Wonderful! I never picked up on the fact that *nobody* is looking at anyone else in this pic -- and laughed out loud reading yours!

  9. Not my sisters! We all sing together off key and sounding like crap, and then we giggle hysterically. I don't know how the neighbors feel about that ....

  10. Bet she was the poor kid whose parents drug her out to play for the company. :)

    Nicely done!

  11. I think I've heard this woman at church...

    Well done!

  12. Sounds like Phoebe and Ross in Friends huh?
    Excellent MM!
    Have you a great week!
    Mine is here

  13. Don't worry she can audition for Britain's got talent! I'm still on the lyrical theme. My micro-fiction

  14. Excellent! I liked the way you got in the fact that no one's making eye contact as they muse.
