Enormous thanks are due to Lexi, who stepped in while I was traveling last week and hosted an awesome FFF. I owe you one, Lexi. Thanks!
Your challenge for this Friday, 3-4-11, is to use the picture above to write a flash fiction of 40-70 words. Since everyone seems to be enjoying the required phrases, please use this phrase in your submission:
"...a sharp crack..."
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.
As with last week, I am no longer collecting the participants list, so you no longer need to notify me by email or leaving a comment here if you're planning on playing along on Friday. Instead, once you've posted your Friday entry, just drop by here to see my own Friday post (which will be scheduled for 12:01 AM on Friday morning) and leave your link using the widget in the body of the post. Then everybody will know you're playing along and they'll come leave nice comments on your entry.
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.
