Flash in the Pan – Around

Flash in the Pan is not new to me anymore, but I am sure there are others who do not know. While flash can mean a lot of things, for this specific challenge it is limited to 100 words or less.  The particular word I chose for this post is Around and it is limited to only 75 words. This makes your writing of each word all the more important.

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. The deadline for this quarter’s edition is 30th of September.


The campfire was the perfect end to every day at camp. All the campers sat around the perimeter in anticipation so many different things. Some waited for the ghost stories, others for a chance at a moonlit kiss, still more awaited the gooey favorite of melted S’mores. The counselors knew their task was to keep track of everyone so no one slipped away; even though most of them were among those craving that serendipitous embrace. 


The word limit for Around is only 75 words. Check out http://mommasmoneymatters.com/flash-fiction/ for the rules and to join the fun.

There is another flash fiction for you to try. It is known as Five Sentence Fiction. Lillie McFerrin is the originator of this challenge and each week she floats a new single word prompt for those who take part to use in creating their entries. You can find this weeks challenge here.

Here are other Flash in the Pan – AROUND responses:

    No doubt. Stuck all day with kiddles makes one want adult attention. 😉
