Postcard Fiction: What She Saw


I actually had a completely different idea when I started this response to Jane Dougherty’s microfiction challenge this week.  The painting prompt is below:


First the junk mail I chose (for a gallery opening) had a strange silvery dot figure on it which I decided to incorporate into the background.  Then the words jumped out of my word oracle box.  Then, I thought I would add a bird…


Well, it just escalated from there.  I have a box of animals too.


I got the name “postcard fiction” from one of Merril’s commenters, who looked up microfiction to see how it was defined.  It works for me!

    I love this! And postcard fiction is perfect for this. Nothing happens. . . Unless they meet. Brilliant. 🙂
    I think it might have been Luanne who used the term postcard fiction?

    This to me is the next clip in the film, what the woman in the painting summons. Perfect!

    Great job on this one! Color scheme is spot on and everything flows into and out of each other in a way that keeps the eye moving.

    Who would have guessed that such a serene horizon would produce so much drama!! This is really cool, Kerfe!
