Read 4 Fun

Read the short reviews, read the book, comment

Go Ask Alice

3 min read

It is Time + One for Twittering Tale # 114. Time + One because I am a day late. December has been a month of late as far as this blog. I read just as much daily but never seem to find the time to rate the reviews. But I have a handy excuse. It is the end of the semester and time for evaluating students and posting grades. Evaluating students is easy; I see them every day. The data posting function is just plain boring and repetitive. We work to fill in templates designed by some computer guru who probably fell in love with WordPress Gutenberg and decided to follow suit. To relieve stress, I can play with a Twittering Tale.

As usual, I repost Kat Myrman’s introduction and instructions for the adventuresome to follow as they create and post their tale. This is followed by her picture prompt, her post, and my attempt at describing the picture.

Give it a try. Break boring routines.

Twittering Tale #114 – 11 December 2018

About the challenge: Each Tuesday I will provide a photo prompt. Your mission, if you choose to accept the challenge, is to tell a story in 280 characters or less. When you write your tale, be sure to let me know in the comments with a link to your tale.

A final note: if you need help tracking the number of characters in your story, there is a nifty online tool that will count for you at

I will do a roundup each Tuesday, along with providing a new prompt. And if for some reason I missed your entry in the Roundup, as I have occasionally done, please let me know. I want to be sure to include your tale.

Finally, have fun!

And REMEMBER…you have 280 characters (spaces and punctuation included), to tell your tale…and a week to do it. I can’t wait to see what you create this week.

For this week, a photo by MabelAmber at It could be a memory, a story of friendship, a mystery or a game. Tell the tale of these two kids or perhaps the tale of the old tree…in 280 characters or less. And I’ll see you at the Round Up next week! Have fun!

The Old Wolf Tree Eyes twinkling, Granny whispered, “le’me tell ya’ ‘bout that old wolf tree. My great granny Nell planted it long, long time ago. Ya neva’ know what ya’ might find in its belly. Once I found a family of faeries!”

Of course the boys had to check it out for themselves. Wouldn’t you?

(279 characters)

And my story:

Weekends in the park with Alice was fun. Not a babysitter, Alice played WITH us. It was Hide and Seek. Not many places she could hide. Maybe she was behind the tree. She hadn’t climbed the tree. Sam said she had taken a pill and looked very small before she climbed into the tree.

  1. Another clever tale that stirs memories of a much beloved story. One of my favorite lines…”You’re entirely bonkers. But I’ll tell you a secret…all the best people are.”😊
