First, here’s the prompts for the November 2022 Flash Fiction Draw Challenge. Then my usual long-winded explanation:
A Legend or Tall Tale
Set on an Ice Shelf
Involving a Brass Bed
Now, on to the details.
Hi! I’m Mike Mayak, I also write as Jeff Baker and 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 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’ll post the results (and hopefully have one of my own written!) the week of November 14th, 2022.
As I’m no good making videos I did the drawing offstage and the results were the Five of Hearts (a Legend or Tall Tale; the King of Clubs (a Brass Bed) and the Jack of Diamonds (an Ice Shelf
So, get to writing and I’ll post the results next week!
Thanks for playing!
Oh, and a couple of notes here: I’m also posting this on my new Tribel page/account for “Mike Mayak,” and I intend to keep this going through 2023!
See ya! ———-Mike
