First, let’s get to the prompts (a day late!) for July 2022. Then the usual explanation.
Set in the Asteroid Belt
Involving a Pie Tin
Hi! I’m Jeff Baker. https://www.facebook.com/Jeff-Baker-Author-176267409096907 I also write as Mike Mayak.https://twitter.com/MikeMayakAuthor
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 every month (I paused for the 4th of July holiday!) I draw three cards; a heart, a diamond and a club. 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 and link it here in the comments. I’m a day late, so let’s go for next Wednesday, July 20th.
As I’m no good making videos I did the drawing offstage and the results were a ten of hearts (an adventure story), the nine of diamonds (the Asteroid Belt) and the seven of clubs (a pie tin.)
So, get to writing and I’ll post the results next week!
Thanks for playing!
