In Case You Missed it--with a new end date of May 3.

Spring Flash Fiction Challenge: Sweet Dreams

Maybe I'm an April Fool and there have been too many of these challenges going around lately, but I feel like writing this story-or having you write it better than I can. It's been rolling around in my head for days.

It begins in a food/drink establishment of some sort. The radio/juke box/band is playing "Sweet Dreams" by the Eurythmics. A red-headed woman in an electric blue dress comes through the door. And then what?

The story doesn't have to center on these elements. I'm just giving you the initial setting.

You can take it from there.

Stories under 1000 wrds. End date: May 3. If you don't have a blog, Mystery Dawg will post it on Powder Burn Flash. Please advise if you're in. It's only fun if we have at least ten writers. Let's see how much interest there is before we fire the gun.

Please notify me or Gerald So if you can make the time to play. Here's the tune for inspiration.

I'll try, but as April is MyNoReMo, I won't be able to start until May Day.

I'm in, Haven't started writing yet, but the story is pretty well formed in my head.

Hi Patti,

I never have time to play along, but I love reading the results.

Have fun everyone.

I've not started mine yet, but May 3 sounds good. Work has gone ballistic at the moment so the longer the better for me. :-)

Looking forward to reading all the entries.

I'm still in ~ I've reserved May 3 on Women of Mystery, so I must! Thanks for hosting, Patti! I can't wait to read what everyone comes up with...

I'm sure I could coax out a story about a devil in a blue dress. Oh, wait....that's a different song.

I'm in.
