Next week I shall be in Orkney and although internet connection should be easy, and new prompt words will be scheduled to appear sometime on Friday 3rd September, I ask each of you to name your favourite entry of this week.
I know I keep
saying this, but each week it seems a new set of stops has been pulled out, a
new level of inventiveness attained. Which, as ever, means the singling out of
just one isn't anywhere near as enjoyable as the reading of them all. However,
I was especially impressed with the sharp brevity of Patricia's SNAFU so
will elect that as top of the bill this week (to mix several metaphors.)
Words for the coming week: drum
Entries by midnight Thursday 2nd
September, new words
posted Friday 3rd
Usual rules: 100
words maximum (excluding title) of flash fiction or poetry using all three
words above in the genres of horror, fantasy, science fiction or noir.
Serialised fiction is, as always, welcome. All variants and uses of the words
and stems are fine. Feel free to post links to your stories on Twitter or
Facebook or whichever.
