Your challenge for this Friday, 7-16-10, is to use the artwork above to write a flash fiction of 60-80 words. Since everyone seems to be enjoying the required phrases, please use this phrase in your submission:
"...fresh blood smells like copper..."
As usual, nobody's checking word counts, or the key phrase, but you only cheat yourself if you break the rules. Unless you're breaking them to earn a spanking....in which case, see me after class.
** EDIT 7-28-10: Due to a last minute business trip I will be out of town starting Thursday afternoon and will not be able to make the rounds on Friday. I have scheduled the Friday post, but if I don't hear from you by 3:00 Central US time on Thursday the 29th, I will have to leave you off the list of participants for Friday. So please get those notifications to me. Thanks.
The usual reminders apply: if you're planning on joining in the fun, please email me (insatiabear (AT) gmail [DOT] com) or leave a comment here. And please, for the love of all that's holy, include a website address if you email me, or if your commenting profile doesn't have a link to your page. It makes things a whole hell of a lot easier for me, which I'm sure you all want to do. :) If you don't let me know you're playing, or don't tell me where you can be found, I'll have to leave you off the list of participants when I post it on Friday. And nobody wants that.
Here's a button for you if you want to include that in your post. Use it to link back to the challenge post, if you like, or link to the Flash Fiction Friday FAQ if you'd rather do that. That Flash Fiction Friday FAQ is also the link you should visit if you're new to the whole FFF thing and have questions. I want everybody to enjoy this, after all.
Check back here on Friday for my take on the challenge and the list of participants, and then again on Monday for the next FFF challenge! And as always, if you have any photos or artwork you'd like to see used in an upcoming week, send them my way.
