FLASH FICTION FUN

I'm probably a glutton for punishment, but I submitted another entry in the Indies Unlimited Flash Fiction Contest. I'm not really sure why I like participating in these fun exercises other than they give me a chance to sharpen my fictional imagination. I'm working on something that will probably take quite a while to feel like I'm making any progress, so taking on a short project like these contests are like recess for the regimented.

This week's contest was titled, "The Last Season".

This is the picture they show you to incorporate into your story... in 250 words or less.

They also provide a few lines to kick start your outline...
"This will be the last season for the old lodge. Jess is getting on in years. The money from the developers must have been mighty tempting, too.
There is another reason Jess decided after all these years to sell that lodge—and a reason he’ll be leaving soon afterward. There is something no one else knows yet."

In the spirit of encouragement, please follow the link below to read and vote for your favorite entry.

Give yourself a treat and go read some Flash! It's interesting and fun to see the diverse writing styles and different ideas when reading the contest submissions.

Having fun with fiction,
