Monday Micros: “A Taste of Freedom”

Initially submitted to the ever-incredible contest venue: Flash! Friday. The element for the week was “theme: defeat” and the picture prompt: And here is what I came up with: “A Taste of Freedom” I chanced across the bird while foraging at the Old Coast. It roosted on an exposed concrete slab. Its hooked beak drooped […]

Monday Micros–“Aflame” and “Soulmates”

Last Thursday, the gods of flash contests smiled on me. Thursday is already an fantastic day for micro-flashing, and my entries managed to hit a judge-y sweet-spot. First there’s the Three Line Thursday contest over at Grace Black’s blog. You have three lines and 30 words max in response to a picture prompt. The results […]

Monday Micro–“Cloven Skies”

I almost didn’t participate in Flash! Friday last week as I spent the morning brainstorming, ended up with pages of notes and nothing that could possibly be distilled into 200 words. I got a bit of friendly goading from fellow (and incredibly talented) flasher, Michael Seese. So I slashed and hacked and fiddled and finally […]

Monday Micros–“Escape Velocity” and “Next Phase”

Our Flash Friday (volume 3-11) two-part prompt included, for the setting element: moon.

Monday Micros–“Slobber and Sympathy” and “Ripple Effect”

A lucky week of flash for me. After being stunned by a win over at MicroBookends¬†with “God of Diggers”, I woke up today to the results of Flash! Friday¬†vol. 3–9: “Slobber and Sympathy” nabbed an honorable mention while “Ripple Effect” earned me a sleek Dragon Badge: Shout out to the judges of Dragon Team two, […]

Monday Micros–“Last Dryad” and “In the Loop”

Let’s dust this thing off and get rocking with some free fiction. These were last weeks entries to Flash! Friday. (I encourage everyone to check out the entries–some stellar examples of flash in there.) The photo prompt by Hartwig HKD was particularly evocative: The required element this week was conflict: man vs. man, and I […]

Monday Micros: “Fire with Fire” and “Facsimile”

Let’s get this ol’ gal of a blog cranking with some micros. My Scrivener file of flashes is bursting at the seams. We had a big couple of weeks over at Flash! Friday, what with the third Flashversary and the start of the new year with a panel of shiny new judges. So this week’s […]
