I actually changed my mind — Tiny Tale Bundles will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Tiny Tale Bundles Rules:
- There will be a prompt. This prompt might be a single word, a picture, a character, or something else.
- Write a ‘bundle’ of three different Tiny Tales inspired by the prompt.
- The word limit is one hundred words.
- If the prompt is a word, then using variations of the word (for example for the word “scratch,” the word “scratched”) is okay too.
- If you want to do this challenge, please properly credit by including a link to this blog post (if you are doing this challenge in blog post form).
- Optional: tag it with #tinytalebundles
- Optional: display the word count.
The prompt today is…
Tiny Tale #1
I wake up in an empty, window-less room.
There is, however, a hole in the wall.
I clamber to my feet only to find that I am weak. I can’t stand.
Slowly, carefully, I settle my feet onto the ground and let go of the wall, flailing my arms around. But my knees buckle and I fall down again.
I manage to shuffle to the hole and peer an eye through.
There is a huge mask. And a person, much smaller than me, leaning against the wall of the room in which I am trapped.
Where am I?

Tiny Tale #2
Marisol ducked behind a large mask that was lying in the alley for unknown reasons. Not noticing her hiding there, they scrambled past the mask, the clumsy group, and went on to try and chase her down.
Once the footsteps and angry shouts had faded away and were replaced by silence, Marisol stepped out from behind the mask and leaned against the wall to rest.
She knew she’d have to be careful. They had eyes everywhere.
Word count: 76
Tiny Tale #3
“What do you think the artist was trying to express?”
Opal thought a moment, turned her head slightly, and said, “Oblivion.”
Word count: 21
My personal favorite is the second one.
