Microfiction Monday #50: Survivor




Martha takes her reality shows very seriously. Leaving her old life behind, she’s ready, and more than willing, to be voted off the island.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I decided to attempt something a little different today and participate in Microfiction Monday. It's a pretty good way to jump start the brain after being away from blogging and working the past 3 days. (Besides, I am sure my complaining about the Carolina Panthers, every single Monday, is getting old!)

Microfiction Monday is a weekly meme where you design a story, in 140 characters or less, around a specific picture. For more information on Microfiction Monday, and to read other stories, please visit Susan over at Stony River.

A great idea to link with a reality show formula and turn it into another reality! Creative!

My guess is Martha will be watching reality shows in the future, but not participating in them again.

Yours is a unique take on this week's picture!

Susan Deborah said...

Another addition to your repertoire: Microfiction! You are one adventurous blogger who always is up for a new challenge. Hats off!

Hope Martha does not take it too far.

Hope the week is rolling fine for you and Sister mates at home!

Joy always,
Susan
