This week's FFF challenge was NaNoWriMo related.

Prompt: Write a horror story that includes the following: Writer, 50,000, month, goal, winner

Genre: Horror

Word Count: 1,500 or less

Deadline: October 27, 2016

Portrait of the Artist

This week's Flash Fiction Challenge was as follows:

If three people witness an event, when they’re asked to detail what they’ve seen, there will be Prompt-photo-1something different about each of their stories. While there will be some similarities overall, each will have directed their focus to a different aspect of the occurrence. The same would be true if those three people were shown identical photos or paintings.
This week, we want to know what you see. Look at the painting above, and write your story. What you focus on is totally up to you. Your story can be about the painting itself, it can be about the subject, or perhaps the voice in your story will be that of the artist.

Prompt: Use the painting as inspiration for your story
Genre: Paranormal
Word Count: 1,500 or less
