Flashes of inspiration #6 – Challenge

Morning all, and congratulations to Jan Edwards for winning the last contest with her evocative piece, Ride, Boldly Ride. I’m going to change it up a bit this week and offer a prize to the next winner: a paperback copy of the excellent collection, ‘A Warning About Your Future Enslavement That You Will Dismiss as a Collection of Short Fiction and Essays by Kit Power.’

You know the score by now. Just write a piece of fiction or poetry for us and ping it along. 400 words seems to be a nice length, so let’s stick with that for now. You can use the image above for inspiration however you like, but you must include the following key words in some shape or form. (Guidance for variants is that they appear on the same entry at dictionary.com)




Email your entries to dion@thefinetoothed.com by midnight (GMT) on Wednesday 20th March. I’ll post the anonymised submissions up on Thursday for our readers, who will then have a week to vote on their favourites. I look forward to seeing what you come up with!

Have fun, peeps xxx

(Note – I cannot yet find the artist to credit for the image. I’ll keep searching and will give them their dues if I’m successful. Any help would be appreciated.)
