First, let’s get to the prompts for January 2022. Then the long-winded explanation.
In the Tower of London
Involving Artificial Grass
Hi, and welcome to 2022!
I’m Jeff Baker https://www.facebook.com/Jeff-Baker-Author-176267409096907 and I also write as Mike Mayak. https://mobile.twitter.com/MikeMayakAuthor
I’m the current moderator for the Monthly Flash Fiction Draw Challenge, which was stared by ‘Nathan Burgoine a few years ago and carried on by Cait Gordon and Jeffrey Ricker. It’s a monthly writing challenge mainly for stress-free fun that anyone can play.
Here’s how it works: The first Monday of each month I draw three cards, a club, a heart and a diamond. These correspond to a list naming a genre, a setting and an object that must appear in the story. Participants write up a flash fiction story, 1,000 words or less, post it to their website/blog and link it in the comments. I’ll post the results on January 10th. As I’m no good at making videos I did it off stage and the results were the Nine of Hearts (a Western), the Ace of Diamonds (the Tower of London) and the Nine of Clubs (artificial grass.)
So the stories will be a Western,
Set in the Tower of London
Involving (or including) Artificial grass.
(I didn’t see that coming!!)
So, I’m looking forward to the results! And I promise I’ll figure out a way to post my list so we can all see what we’ve used and what might be coming up!
