It's back! Flash Fiction Friday Challenge for 9-2-10

Many thanks to Advizor for stepping in at the last minute and hosting an impromptu Flash Fiction Friday while I was occupied last week. Thanks also for those who participated in the fun. Here are the folks who did play:

Now, for the challenge and photo for this week....

(Source image: "Samba Beat 2" by Toon Stalpers).

Your challenge for this Friday, September 2nd, is to use the artwork above to write a flash fiction of 150-180 words. Since everyone seems to be enjoying the required phrases, please use this phrase in your submission:

"...passion, grace and fire..."

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 which case, see me after class.

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.
