Flash in the Pan – Right

I found a new flash fiction challenge for any and all who enjoy such a test of your writing ability. While flash can mean a lot of things, for this specific challenge it is limited to 100 words or less.  By selecting the words in the quarter’s list you can know your word limit. The exciting thing is that these stories are collected for publication each quarter. But, only the first 250 flashes entered will make the publication, so do not hesitate.


Smith wiped his forehead from the incredible heat and drew in a deep breath before explaining the directions to his simple friend.

“Now listen. You go a half-mile then take a right, another quarter-mile and another right, then to the next red light and a final right.

“Can’t I just go left?” Simon asked turning in that direction.

“No. You must follow my directions exactly to get there.”

“But why, it seems simpler my way.”

“Simon, trust me, it is the only way to get where you want to go.”

“But I always heard three rights make a left!”



The word limit for Right is 100 words, I economized to use only 99. Check out http://mommasmoneymatters.com/flash-fiction/ for the rules and to join the fun.

Also, for you Flash in the Pan folks, I want to share another Flash Fiction connection. A friend of mine named Josh Magill is starting a multi-part flash fiction serial in which 13-15 writers will add one hundred word chapters to a collaborative effort. Josh was one of a dozen writers on a similar peoject of mine. If you think this interests you check out Josh’s link.
