Flash in the Pan – Embark

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 Embark and it is the hot flash for August and limited to only 50 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 250 flashes entered will make the publication, so do not hesitate. The deadline for this quarter’s edition is 30th of September.


“What are you saying Doctor Kaye?”

“His injuries are too severe. The fall was more than a body can absorb.”

“He is going to die?”

“He will embark from this world before morning,” the doctor said quietly.

Tears began to collect and then slide down her cheek. 


The word limit for Embark is only 50 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.

    I’ve a tad too much on my plate already – though this does look interesting. I like what you did with an unusual word. I see that the prompt is up for Friday Fictioneers. But I can’t go there yet. I’m going to try and catch up on some e-mail, house chores and errands first. 🙂

    What did she expect when she Three-Stooged him off the ledge?
