Flash Fiction Callenge # 24

I apologize for the extended delay in carrying on the challenge; unfortunately, real life has a way of tossing boulders in our way at times.



Flash Fiction Challenge # 24

Write a Flash Fiction story of 250 words with a lee way of 5 words more or less.  In other words, it must be between 245 and 255 words.

Have your story deal with music. It can be a musical instrument, singing, writing a song, even about records, jukebox or CDs being played. Or, any other connection with music you can come up with. Still, it does need a beginning, middle and an end.

Have fun with it; it can be humorous, serious or somewhere in-between. The choice is yours.

The deadline for entry is Jan. 31, 2011 at midnight CST.  I regret to say that any arriving after the deadline can not be counted.

The only way to enter your story in the challenge is to PM it to me.

For any new members that may be unfamiliar with our PM, you can click the speech symbol beneath my name on the left side of the screen, or click this link:

Happy writing folks. I look forward to receiving loads of stories for all of you - but only one from each of you.   ;D

There is still time to sit down and write a flash fiction story or edit a story you might has to shake the dust off of and get it entered into the current FF Challenge.

Besides, I need some short to read that match my recent (and still current) short attention span.  ;D

Glad to hear it Joe. 

Would you like me to turn the heat up just a tad to keep it simmering?  ;)
