April 2022 Flash Fiction Draw Challenge—The Results!!! (from Jeff Baker)

As you can see from the cards, I’m the current moderator for the Monthly Flash Fiction Draw Challenge, which was started 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. 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.)

Here’s the results for April!

Thanks so much to all our participants! It’s not too late—if you want to write a story for this, post it in the comments and I’ll stick it up here! And I’ll see you on May 2nd, 2022 for the next draw!
