Flash Fiction Friday Challenge for 2-11-11

(Source image: "Searching Narciso" by Martin Toyé)

Your challenge for this Friday, 2-11-11, is to use the picture above to write a flash fiction of 107-127 words. Since everyone seems to be enjoying the required phrases, please use this phrase in your submission:

"...a pale reflection..."

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.

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.

Please see this entry for an example of how it works. Any questions, let me know.

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.

I am perfectly happy to spare you the time and effort to collect entrants, but as your midnight is my much later than midnight, I was wondering if there was any way you could maybe put the widget on this post, rather than your entry, which would allow people to sign up early. Probably not, since then the list wouldn't be on Friday's post. Still, it's a comment. I was perfectly fine with the widget though; no need to change that.

Lexi: No, you've hit on it. I can only stick the widget up on the actual entry itself. There are some issues with using this method instead of the other way, but we'll see what people think overall. I may go back to the original but this way is a hell of a lot less work for me.

No no, keep with the easier method. Someone should just invent a widget that gathers from one post and then the list appears on another. And while I'm at it, I'd like a pony ;)

Give Lexi a pony.

I was looking for the same thing. Oh, least I am on time for a change.

Thank you for doing this although I am not a consistent entrant I love the challenges.

Lexi: One pony on its way! Your younger self will be delighted. :)

Kenny: No problem! Glad you like doing this. That's the idea.
