Philip Dick reading.
Here's a flash fiction challenge to complete by February 10th from Gerald, Aldo and me. I got the idea on the Women of Mystery's blog where Terrie Moran wrote two lines that I wanted to steal.
So now we can all steal. Or get a kick start on a new flash from someone else's words. Or work in tandem. Whatever.
First, sign up to play by January 13th.
Second, write the first paragraph of a story, (say 3-6 lines.)It doesn't need to be about Valentine's Day).
Third, send your paragraph to me by January 20th (email@example.com. I will stir the pot and send it back out to another writer.
Fourth-write a 750 (or so) word story using it.
Fifth, post it on your own blog or with Mystery Dawg at Powder Burn Flash on February 10th.
Sixth-I'll let you know whose lines you used when it's over.
Just write a first paragraph, something you might use yourself--the best you can come up with, and you're off. Does this sound doable? Does this sound like fun?
I never know. Maybe it's just fun in my head.
