My story on a postcard

Bloggie friends!

Are you able to fit a whole story on the back of a postcard? The answer is YES, YOU CAN!

Here’s mine! LOL!

And the lovely Ellie Garratt’s and gorgeous Margo Benson's too.

But typical me I’m reading my story and thinking – yikes – it ain’t finished, needs more work – why on earth did I send this story, tis melodramatic rubbish...!

Ahem.

Charlie says: You get postcard, I have toys and treats.


Thank you wonderful Suzanne of Four Crazy Cats for this very special surprise for Charlie! As you can see he couldn’t wait for me to open the box properly - he went completely doollally!

Happy Monday everyone!

Kitty, that was good! And cold - over without a backwards glance.
Looks like Charlie will have fun spreading those toys all over the house!

Lynda R Young said...

Ha, that's so cool!
Also, I love the idea of sticking a story at the back of a postcard. I have no idea why... It just appeals.

Love Charlie.

Ernest Hemingway was once taunted by a critic to write a one paragraph short story.

He wrote :
For sale. Baby shoes. Never worn.

The critic never wrote back. Roland

Jen your postcard had me sputtering with laughter at the end! You do have talent!

LTM said...

What a great site! Thank you for finding it.

They don't publish every story they get, you know...

Hi Old Kitty .. that was great - and just so - as that's life at that age .. a real story on a postcard ..

well done - have a good week - Hilary

Fuzzy Tales said...

I said "Yikes!" but not because it's "rubbish" as you put it, which it's not, IMO. But because....ugh! How creepy and inappropriate of the woman/mother. Acck.

No "yikes" or "ugh" or "acck" for Charlie--rather, hurrah! What a wonderful gift package Suzanne sent!

Have a great week, Jennifer!

Debbie said...

That looks fun. I might give it a go.

Gail Crane said...

Reenie said...

I liked the story... I like how you leave the 'catch' for the very last line, Jenn. Impressive :)

Madeleine said...

We enjoyed reading your story Jenn - and Lucy and Hannah paid special atention to Charlie's picture with his "things". They want to come over later to play if he doesn't mind.

That is really neat, to be able to do that on the back of a postcard. Well done.
Charlie, just look at all your treasures. That is so great to get all those presents. Hope you have one heck of a week. Take care.

Patsy said...

Oooh, Kitty! You bad woman!!! Oh I see - it's fiction. Yeah, I knew that.

Like the story and I like the idea of that site.

Jackee said...

Love the postcard fiction! And Margo's too. :o) Definitely not rubbish.

Charlie is one lucky cat, he even gets packages from bloggie friends! :o)

Have a lovely day!

Jenny Woolf said...

Good story! At first I thought the idea was to write YOUR story on a postcard - imagining you with a 15 year old lover, my goodness - but I've taken another look now! haha!
Whoo hoo to Charlie!

Eliza said...

That was a great story, brill :-)

Theresa Milstein said...

Oh my goodness, what a funny spin at the end. I guess you CAN write a story on the back of a postcard.

What a lovely present, Charlie!

Cheri said...

Great story in a short space. Very intriguing.
