Flash Fiction Friday Challenge for 5-8-11

(Source image: "Bedtime Reading" by Valery Bareta)

Your challenge for this Friday, 5-8-11, is to use the picture above to write a flash fiction of 160-185 words. Since everyone seems to be enjoying the required phrases, please use this phrase in your submission:

"...unheard and unheeded..."

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.

My take on this pic will go up by 12:01 AM on Friday morning. If you are participating this week (and the more the merrier), simply stop by any time after that 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. Everyone wins!

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.

Hey PB, isn't Friday the 6th? I believe you have Friday the 8th on your post. Just want to make sure. I have my assignment written and set for auto-post tomorrow but don't want to prematurely ejacul... I'm mean post too soon. :)

Sephi: Great! Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

Ryan: Yeah, it is the sixth. This is what happens when I create the challenge entry on a day when I haven't turned my calendar to the next month. It was still showing April, so I looked at the first Friday in April (which was the 8th) and then said "May 8th" in the post. I can't be arsed to change the original challenge entry since the date is the only thing wrong about it. I think everyone is smart enough to realize I meant this FRIDAY. This Friday is May 6th. :)
