Mike Mayak, AKA Jeff Baker
First, let’s get to the prompts for April 2022. Then the long-winded explanation.
A Sports Story
In a Piano Factory
Involving a Pair of Handcuffs
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 here in the comments. I’ll post the results on April 11th. As I’m no good at making videos I did it off stage and the results were the Jack of Hearts (a Sports Story), a Seven of Diamonds (a Piano Factory) and the Ace of Clubs (a Pair of Handcuffs.)
So the stories will be a Sports Story
Set in a Piano Factory
Involving (or including) a Pair of Handcuffs.
So, play ball! I’ll see you in a week!
