Word Pool Wednesday

It's the last Word Pool Wednesday today, as Ellie is going to concentrate on her other writing projects. Good luck Ellie! And thanks also for running the Wednesday challenge. I can honestly say it has prompted some new ideas which wouldn't have come to me otherwise.

Anyway, today's words are kitty, charity, and donation. As ever, it's got to be a mini-story in 33 words. I'm off to work now so I'll be back later to catch up on comments and other entries for today's challenge. Are you sitting comfortably? Then I'll begin:

"Stick your charity," squawked Kitty Malone, Cockney sparrow of the music hall. "I ain't put my 'at there for donations!"

"Keep it," replied the gentleman. "They say talking pictures are coming to town."

What a brilliant microfiction, Joanne. Kitty Malone! I loved it.

Thank you for taking part in my Word Pool Wednesdays x

I love it! A whole story in so few words!

It makes me think of Singing In The Rain and the grating voice of the actress who had to be dubbed for her first talkie. I could watch that film right now.

Yay!! Excellent!! Silly Kitty Malone! I love this!! This Wednesday Word Pool's been a blast - and what a fab story to end it with. Thanks for sharing!
Take care

Now that's a bit of fiction with a bite of history! Very clever!
