Um...ew. Close your coat. It's not that kind of flash.

The lovely writers of Flashy Fiction are hosting a fun contest all through October. Just enter a comments section (of any post, I believe) with a short short story, and you are automatically entered in a drawing to win a $20 gift certificate to Amazon on November 1st!

And if you've never visited, hang around. Every day, one of the writers posts a prompt of some sort – picture, phrase, headline, etc – and challenges you to write a piece of flash fiction in the comments section. Very fun!

And, seriously...the coat.

  1. That picture is brilliant. Come to think of it, there was the red sock wearing bandit that frequented the subdivision we lived in back in the states. . .

  2. you can't show me a photo like that, because my brain automatically pictures the rest.



  3. Naughty, naughty Kristen...

    Wait, what?? Of course I wasn't thinking the same thing! I'm appalled you would think that!

  4. Pervs, all of you. He's clearly wearing candy-cane striped PJ's under that coat.

  5. What would we do without out beta readers and critique partners! Mine are invaluable -- both for their contributions to my books and for the chance to read their works in progress
