Flash Fiction Draw Challenge Draws for March 2023 from Mike Mayak. (March 6th, 2023.)

First, here’s the prompts for the March 2023 Flash Fiction Draw Challenge. Then my usual long-winded explanation:

An Shakespearian Story

Involving a Cup of Tea

Set on a Football Field

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 March 13th, 2023.

As I’m no good making videos I did the drawing offstage and the results were the Eight of Clubs (a cup of tea), the Ace of Diamonds (a football stadium) and the Jack of Hearts (a Shakespearian story.)

So we will write a Shakespearian story, set at a football stadium involving a cup of tea!. And, again, I’ve got to be crazy listing another writer’s style (like last month’s Aesop’s Fable!)

So, get to writing and I’ll post the results next week!

Thanks for playing, and I’ll see you next week!
