Having deleted some 90+ posts - many with comments numbering in the hundreds - without solving the problem of some of you being able to upload posts. I've paused: it was an uncomfortable exercise, erasing history. Only one idea since - does it work if instead of copy/paste you compose, type out word by word, your entry? SO frustrating, not least because your words are sorely missed.
Words for the coming week (fingers crossed all may play) merge saffron torque

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.

Firstly, apologies for my lack of posts this week -- a week without time spent on 'Mercy', my current wip, left me desperate to pick it up again and note down the random ideas I had while away (and I'm not done yet!) A good time had, though, weather kind and I re-established my liking for mussels, scallops and whisky.
Jim's struggles to post fill me with despair as I have
no remedy to suggest. There seems to be some blame levelled at Google, who
apparently recently took over Blogger, but the lack of logic – why do comments
stick but not posts? – defeats me. If the problem persists all I can do is ask if
someone else has the know-how to set up a site with similar functions.
What MIGHT be a solution - the site might be full. I propose going to the archives and attempting to delete some of the 472 posts, starting from December 2013, trusting you have all saved what you'd like to keep
What was easier this week was the picking of a winner -
I was enchanted by Antonia's incorporation of Charon in her untitled piece, but
much enjoyed all other entries.

Internet connection being dodgy, I'm suggesting mist, ferry and pass as prompt words for next week.
