So much changed since our last challenge. Most of us are staying at home because of the COVID-19 pandemic. I thought I’d try “lighting the lighthouse” last week and to my delight, people still wrote flash fiction this month!
Last week, I drew pretty decent cards: 2 of spades, Jack of hearts, and the 8 of diamonds. That meant the genre was steampunk, the setting was an apothecary, and the object that must appear in the story was a spider!
And here are the stories from our authors. Thanks for playing and not making me feel I’m not alone!
- Iara Warriorfeather wrote Materia medica
- Jamieson Wolf wrote Ship of Fools
- Jeff Baker wrote Along Comes a Steampunk Spider
- E.H. Timms wrote Old Wounds
- Bruce Gordon wrote Clockwork Spiders
- and lil’ ol me wrote You Feelin’ Lucky, ’Punk?
The next draw is on May 4, 2020!
Hope you can join us!
