Cold Winds Blow
There's a wicked storm making its way across the U.S., and while I'm out of the worst of it, the cold is bitter indeed. All the better for staying inside, drinking hot beverages (with or without a bit of liquor, I won't be saying), and snuggling up with a nice bit of darkish fiction.
While there were only four entries last week, they were each of them a delight to read. The one that cut through my fluffy down blanket to near-freeze the blood was AJ Humpage's A Sign of Things to Come. That was a fine and nasty piece of (I hope) fiction.
I know it's a bit of a rush with the holidays and weather being unpredictable, but do feel free to invite your friends over to The Prediction to share their words with us. I would so love to see our community grow, whether from old friends returning or new ones being made.
And now that I've done my little push, here are the words I hope might tempt you:
So innocuous, and yet I see great potential for mischief in them.
The usual rules apply: 100 words maximum (excluding title) of flash fiction or poetry using all of the three words above in the genres of horror, fantasy, science fiction or noir. All variants and use of the words and stems are fine.
