Stony River’s Microfiction Monday #10


Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones

Monday Monday, so good to me, / Monday Monday, it was all I hoped it would be… so far! Please, press play :D (I still like the Mama’s and the Pappas, so here are three songs for your pleasure) I’ve written my entry for Susan’s Microfiction Monday and am looking forward to my weekly visits of new online buddies that also participate in this fun weekly meme. With the advent of tweeting (though I don’t), it is not just a fun idea, it is a challenging and entertaining goal to accomplish each week. The rules are relatively simple – write a story of 140 characters or less that is triggered by an image provided by our hostess. I encourage my visitors with blogs of their own to join in – the fellowship alone is worth the price of admission. So, let’s get to business!

The Triggering Town (click Richard Hugo)

All the grass is green
and the sky is grey
I’ve been for a walk
on a summer’s day

California Cows happier??
*cough* Bulls@&t! DREAMING!

Try the second song :P Had to take that somewhere, so it seemed music might be nice.

Now I’ve some exciting news:  Jeff, over at My Nasty Romance, a sometime fellow traveler in this weekly meme, has a new book coming out soon. The moment I get a link to the Amazon purchasing point I’ll post it here – as well as at my book review of The Gospel of Lazlo. Please take a run through the review, forgive me for not being quite the polished reviewer, and know, it’s a damn fine book despite my reviewing inexperience!

The best of Mondays to all of you, and thanks again Susan for a marvelous Monday meme!

Cheers All!

    California Dreamin’ on a Monday Morning? Love it.

    You know, someone once told me that all creative people tap into the same atmospheric muse and several people at once encounter the same piece of inspiration. For you and I the inspiration was obviously, “use music” and we did.

    @Sylvia Kirkwood Glad you liked it! Mondays are much easier to take with this fun little exercise – hope your week only gets better :D

    @Susan at Stony River I sure hope it doesn’t, well, sour you on their other fine music ;-) Hope your plans for relocating are going as smooth as is humanly possible. Cheers Susan!

    @quilly Glad you liked the music! And I love that take on sharing the same atmospheric muse! It describes precisely how ephemeral my muse seems to be sometimes :D Have a wonderful week Quilly!

    @Thom Hope this experience hasn’t cowed your ability to appreciate The Mamas & The Papas! Thanks my friend – have a fabulous day!

    @juliana My uncle was a rancher, and summers were spent among cattle – the night time lowing of a herd was kind of musical and comforting. Made me think music would go nice this week :)

    The cows are California dreaming from all of that grass they get.
