The picture is posted with my story on this page. My story was improvised this morning after getting out of bed late so I apologize in advance for it’s lack. The scene is vague, but sets in my mind a feeling I might intend to use later.
Doing these flashes have proved invaluable as short story starters – have you been using yours to any end besides the fun we’re having on Fridays? I’m almost done with a short I started using the scenes I’d set in a combination of two prior flashes.
Now post a link to yours in the comment section of my story.
I’m always open to constructive criticism if you see mistakes or ways to improve upon what I’ve done. This is a learning exercise for me. However, not everyone feels that way, so if you don’t see an invitation to critique on their post, don’t do it.
We are the Friday Fictioneers and we gather every Friday here to post a very short story. It’s a great way to showcase your voice, but to do it in 100 word is almost an extreme challenge. It forces you to choose strong verbs and concise phrases.
Hop on board and post one of yours or visit ours, or do both.
