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!
