Flash! Friday: Vol 3 – 30

Flash! Friday

IT’S HERE!!!!! And I’m going to pretend like y’all haven’t already scrolled to the bottom to see what the new contest looks like and will give you a proper intro anyway. Which means: WELCOME to Flash! Friday’s newest challenge! Our first half of the year, we wrote stories inspired by the basic elements of a story (plot/conflict, setting, character, theme) plus a contrasting photo. Now we’re ratcheting that up a bit by finding inspiration in the famous novels of yesterday. Here’s the deal:

* Novel Prompt: We will provide the name of a famous novel along with a summary of its story elements. If you aren’t familiar with the novel, no worries — our summary’s all you need.
* New word count: ROTATING. Each week will require a different min/max wordcount.

Midweek Musings 1×08

#FlashMobWrites

With some editing deadlines looming large, we’re taking the weekend off from #FlashMobWrites. But we’re not leaving you with a week bereft of new tuneage.

I’ve been waiting impatiently for this band’s new album for a couple months, since hearing their alt hit, “Renegades.” Well the album, VHS, finally dropped yesterday. I’ve listened through a few times already, pleasantly surprised by the stylistic variety of the band’s sound.

This is one of my favorite tracks from the album, and after watching this live performance I’m even more impressed by these guys.

So take this anthem to trying to be a better person–and not always succeeding–and see where it leads you. Guidelines are after the lyrics, and post your stories in the comments below!

I’m nothing but a low life
Thinking ’bout my own life
I can’t help myself from falling
Can’t help myself from falling
I’m nothing but a low…

Mid-Week Blues-Buster Week 3.05

The Tsuruoka Files

Welcome to the Mid-Week Blues-Buster Flash Fiction Challenge, Year 3, Week 5.

This is a flash fiction challenge. The prompt is a song. You are not required to write about or even mention the song. It’s there only to get the ideas moving around in your brain pan. If you want to write about the song (or the video- it’s all good here) go for it but don’t feel like you have to.

The rules;
500 words, but it’s a slushy 500, meaning you can go up to 700 or as low as 300.
Post your entry right in the comments section of this post.

MAKE SURE TO PUT YOUR TWITTER HANDLE NEXT TO YOUR WORD COUNT AT THE BOTTOM OF YOUR POST. IF YOU’RE NOT ON TWITTER GIVE ME AN EMAIL ADDRESS OR SOME OTHER WAY TO GET A HOLD OF YOU!.

The challenge starts whenever I post this…
