Welcome to the Monday Microfiction community! Each week, we take the sentence or sentences provided in the previous Friday's A Softer World comic and create a short story based on them. Please note that everything in the comic is copyrighted by Joey Comeau (untoward) and Emily Horne (thisisfurious), and we're borrowing the sentences with permission. That is, they know about this community and haven't told us to stop, so it's pretty much the same thing.

Everyone is welcome to join and post. Here are the guidelines:

1. Post using the sentence which appears in the most recent comic. It can always be found here, and is updated every Friday.
2. Use the sentence or sentences exactly as they appear. You may add capitalization as necessary, and add whatever punctuation you like between the frames. Other than that, it should be untouched.
3. Add this link to the top of your post:

<small><b><i><a href="http://www.asofterworld.com/soft_[the comic's date]_2006.htm">ASW [the comic's date]</a></i></b></small>
Change [the comic's date] to the date of the comic, obviously. For the URL, it should be in the format of three-letter month abbreviation, day; for example, "oct22" or "jul4."
Although frankly, having fun writing is more important than following the rules, so if you feel like altering the structure, or splitting the sentences up, have a good time. We're not going to stop you. You can even post for older comics if you feel like it, but make sure your link works so we know what you're talking about.
