Flash Fiction Draw Challenge, December 2022—-The Draws!
First, here’s the prompts for the December 2022 Flash Fiction Draw Challenge. Then my usual long-winded explanation:
Set on (or near) a Merry-Go-Round
Involving a Surfboard
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 December 12th, 2022.
As I’m no good making videos I did the drawing offstage and the results were the Five of Clubs (a surfboard), Six of Diamonds (a merry-go-round) and the Ace of Hearts (a mystery.)
So, get to writing and I’ll post the results next week!
Thanks for playing!
And here’s an addenda: I now have a Mastodon page/account for “Mike Mayak,” (MikeMayak@mastodon.lol) and I intend to keep this going through 2023!
See ya! ———-Mike
