Life seems to have taken both RR and I hostage this last week. We both apologize for the delay!
Right to it, then!
Our winner this week is Sandra Davies with Problems with mother-in-law: Smooth use of the prompts, but truthfully, it was the last line that clinched it for me! Very clever and just really funny. Thank you.
Also in the winner's circle this week is Michael B. Fletcher with Guardian: I just like the flow of this, and a ginger werewolf? A rare thing indeed, in my experience.
The Tome has been growling at me and chewing at my boot. As my foot happens to be still in it, I'll go ahead and give the little darling leave to give us this week’s words.
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. Serialized fiction is, as always, welcome. All variants and use of the words and stems are fine.
Feel free to post links to your stories on Twitter or Facebook or whichever social media best pleases you and, if you like, remind your friends that we are open to new and returning writers.
You have until Friday, March 6th. Winners and words on Saturday, March 7th.
