Hi there Flashers,
Welcome to the first FFF of 2018, WEEK 346!
NEWCOMERS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME.
Important announcement – Five of our subscribers to FLASH FICTION have had stories accepted for publication in mainstream competitions and online magazines. Congrats to RAS (Ron), KABIBA (Kate), Singers (Tabatha), Toppykat, Suzycue, and Sebnem. See what a weekly dose of FLASH can do for you? We wonder who’ll be next?
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, two images of conceptual photography by Logan Zillmer. You can use one or both images to create your story.
Static Square Space
Logan Zillmer is a passionate photographer with a talent in photo manipulation and an imagination to brig both of them together, in these Fantastically Surreal Images. With a background as a Film School graduate, he is able to draw his inspirations from decades of movies and from the art world, where some of his compositions have been compared to the famous Belgian Surrealist artist René Magritte. Images with messages, in some cases, different for different viewers
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
