FLASH FICTION – THE PLACE FOR NEW, ORIGINAL WRITING. WHY SHOULD YOU PLAY? WELL, THE MORE YOU WRITE, THE BETTER YOUR WRITING BECOMES. WRITING OUTSIDE YOUR COMFORT ZONE STRENGTHENS YOUR TECHNIQUE, AND WHO KNOWS, MAY BE THE INSPIRATION FOR YOUR NEXT BLOCKBUSTER NOVEL / NOVELLA. WELCOME TO THE ‘ORIGINAL’ FFF THREAD.
This week we have a photo prompt by Baccus :
Fearless Girl is a bronze sculpture by Kristen Visbal, commissioned by State Street Global Advisors (SSGA), a large asset management company. The statue was installed on March 7, 2017, in anticipation of International Women's Day the following day. It depicts a girl four foot high, promoting female empowerment. It is located in front of the New York Stock Exchange in the Financial District of Manhattan, New York City.
NB For anyone who hasn’t taken part before. All you have to do is use the prompt in any way you feel so inclined, using your innate talent, originality and imagination.
ANYBODY CAN VOTE – Allocate 3 for your favourite, then 2, then 1
That’s the challenge in 1,000 words or less. Any genre, any style, any period, any planet or any head.
Rules? - Please respect your fellow writers.
Suggestions - One - If you start reading something and you don’t like it – then move to the next one – Don’t vote but do enjoy the next person’s work and vote accordingly.
Submissions end Wednesday, August 21st at 18:00 hrs GMT when voting commences.
*submission deadline will be extended if there are less than 6 entries.
Voting ends at 18:00 hrs GMT Wednesday, August 28th.
Your chance to show us a scene, a situation, or a character related to the prompt, something good, or maybe bad, happy or sad, something related to our existence, in any sense of the word, but ALL with a brilliant display of FLASH!
