This weeks FFF prompt was to start with a random first line of dialogue. I got "I WILL find out who killed my husband, with or without your help." That was intriguing. 965 words.
Yes, it's the last post of the Round, and several days late.
But I tried something different yesterday - reading one of my stories and posting it online. Video shown below, but no editing, so please excuse the occasional stumbles. Comments are welcome too. Feedback so far on Facebook is mostly positive. Some suggestions were slower, breaks between speakers, and more emotion. I read a recent Flash Fiction of mine, A Touch of Magic, prefaced with a few minutes outlining my ideas/concerns. I'll repost them below.
The latest FF challenge was also part of a NYC Midnight Flash Fiction contest - round 2. Each group was asigned a genre, setting, and object, and give 48 hours to write a 1000 word (max) story. Our group got fantasy, an antique shop. amd a goldfish. My story was 995 words.
This week's prompt was to write about sending someone, or something off to school. I started this late, as I couldn't think of a good premise. But, I did manage to pull something together. It could do with some simplification I think, a better focus. Difficult prompts are good prompts, right? 941 words.
