Trifextra – Week Eighty – The Pageant Smile

I love any and all flash fiction challenges. Why? Because it makes you economize your words. It is a great way to sharpen your writing by making sure there are no extra or fluff words in your piece. Each word must directly add to the overall or it is wasted. The great thing about Trifecta is that you never know what is going to be presented, so you have to think on your feet. The collection of souls giving these prompts a look continues to grow each week, so not only do you get the chance to read some great posts, you are exposed to other new bloggers where new friends can be found.

Check out Trifextra Week Eighty if you are interested.


The day Miranda dreamed about was at hand. Five minutes until she took the stage for the Miss Delaware pagent. A piece of candy to ward off low sugar. What snapped? A tooth?


I want to point you flash fiction writers to another options. One is Flash in the Pan, where you right short fiction 50-150 words respectively to words chosen and posted each week. 250 responses will be collected and published by Redmund Productions. You can check the details at the following link: Flash in the Pan.

Can you tell from my writing I love God? I hope so because that is what I want you to know most about me. I am also a writer who loves taking on fiction prompts and crafting a story. One day you will read my work in print. Until then enjoy it here! For free!

  1. Drat. I hate when that happens and there’s all that smiling to be done on stage. What can she do?
    Fabulous choice.
