Friday Fictioneers – History Always Remembers The Truth

Every week, Rochelle gives us a donated photo as a prompt to write a story using 100 words. It may sound easy, but try reducing a story down to 100 words. It gives you a new respect for the English language as you search for words that will compress your descriptions.

Think you are up to the challenge? Head over to Rochelle’s pad take a look at the rules and regs. Then head over to where all the stories are being kept which is here.
