Flash Fiction # 37
« on: November 30, 2011, 03:08:57 PM »
Hopefully fingers will now be cooling and brains resting after NANO.

So now is the time for something simple!

It's December. Thanksgiving is over and Christmas is on the way, so for this FF I want something happy.  No death, no dying of cancer, no murder, no impending doom, no sadness, no bloody vampires (unless they are happy ones).  A lot of the past entries have been sad (guilty as charged!!!) so this time it is going to be a happy story.

400 words maximum please, but on any subject you want. But is has to be happy! (The sort you would read to your old Gran and it would leave her smiling).

One person I mentioned this to said it would be hard without conflict and turmoil etc. Prove them wrong!!! or maybe it's too hard  ;D  ;D

Cutoff time is Friday 9th December at midnight UK time.

Please PM me masses of entries.

Boshman  ;D

Whoa Boshman!!! That might be the hardest challenge yet.

It's going to flex some unused muscles, for sure.

 ;D ;D ;D

Happy???  Happy?  Wow.  You do realize you're talking to a bunch of writers, don't you?

Good challenge, Boshman. 

Happy.  Jeez.  This guy is crazy.

Gee I guess it would all depend on who's death, huh?

Granny looks a little lot like Queen Elizabeth.

Say, what makes a serial killer happy??  Pondering happy.  Ponder, ponder.

Would that be Grandma Mazur? Are you Stephanie Plum's brother?
