Flash Fiction Friday?

Posted on: February 8th, 2013 by Madison Lake No Comments

Greetings you fans of erotic, romantic fiction.

It seems we need to get those pens wagging and fingers tapping after the leisurely holiday break. We’ll try a few more rounds of Flash Fiction Friday and if that doesn’t arouse new interest other than our loyal Gerrad McConnell (thanks Gerrad :-)) then I think it’s time to move on to a new challenge.

So for now, send your 50 word short piece of fiction using the word VALENTINE. Remember, you still have to have a beginning, middle, and end to your short story, and keep it in the romantica ilk. The chosen story will be put in the draw for a $50 Amazon gift certificate.

Now, get writing!

My apologies to all my FFF followers & writers.

I have been enjoying some ‘down time’ as well as working on revamping Madison Lake’s Modern Trash.Flash Fiction Friday will be up and running again soon – promise.

I believe we left off with the word  ‘festive’ so if you haven’t already, feel free to submit your 50 word story with the word or idea ‘festive’ in it. After all, not just the holidays have to be festive, right?

Remember, all submissions are to be sent to madlakepages@gmail.com no later than midnight the Thursday before. Don’t forget to put your name.

Happy writing.

HEY ALL YOU WRITERS OF FICTION. HERE’S AN OPPORTUNITY FOR YOU.

Every Friday, based on the theme given the previous week, a 50 word story is chosen and posted on the blog. If your piece is chosen, it will also be posted as the Flash Fiction story of the week, and your name will be entered in our draw for a $50 Amazon gift certificate compliments of Madison Lake. Draws will be made quarterly, on Fridays of course.

The theme of today’s Flash Fiction piece is POSSESSION, and the winning story was sent to us by GERRAD MCCONNELL.

The room was cloaked in shadows and the chill air sent prickles of gooseflesh down my spine. She stared at me from the bed, her eyes seeming to glow white in the inky blackness. She smiled as I drew near, drawing the crucifix before me, preparing to expel another possession.
Congratulations Gerrad! Your name will be entered into our draw. The next draw will be Friday, March 2, 2013. THANK YOU to all participants. Keep sending in your stories. As always, we receive a lot of clever fiction. I love it!

 

Make sure to check in on any Friday to find out the theme for the following week, then submit your 50 word story to madlakepages@gmail.com. All submissions must find their way to my inbox no later than noon Thursday. The theme for next week is  FESTIVE
** DECEMBER 21st WILL BE THE LAST FLASH FICTION FRIDAY OF 2012. WE WILL RESUME ON JANUARY 11th. TIS THE HOLIDAY SEASON! **

Funny comment caught my eye, her avi held my attention.  Glancing back through the timeline confirms, she is brilliant, a photo says hello, my hand it wanders.  Witty banter a delightful smile, she chats me up just a while.  And in a moment or maybe more we make love in a dream.
