Microfiction challenge The door: the entries

I need a rest, seriously. I’ve only just realised it’s Thursday, microfiction round-up day. Things are getting epic now, with many stories following on from last week’s. Some of you are already so good at the short form, it’s an honour to host your stories. Some of you are trying prose out for the first time, and the results are to be proud of. Next obstacle tomorrow. Look on it as a challenge 🙂

Kat’s story is breaking my heart! I’m dreading what she’s going to come up with tomorrow.

Bill’s story, like Kat’s, has a feeling of tragedy about it, spiraling down, maybe into madness, maybe peace.

The Window and the Gate


Lovely pace to Ken’s story. A stroll down memory lane and into a peaceful future.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

    1. I do it because I’m enjoying it! I follow my own prompts, so it gives me an excuse to write poetry and short fiction when I should really be doing other things.
