“Red sky at night, sailors delight,” he muttered to himself as he glanced up at the sky and pulled tight the final knot of his fishing net.

      1. Agreed! I like that they can be as long, or short, as you’d like! I started by insisting on my own brevity. I’m allowing myself a few more words this week — but it’s not my regular MO 😉 If you’re looking for another image prompt, I host 100 Word Wednesdays — that’s me trying to still be brief, but contain the story in 100 words.
