F3 – Cycle 1 – Mary Lou’s Lost Shoe

I’ve Tweeted and Facebooked about starting up Flash Fiction Friday last week, but hadn’t mention here on the Between Blog. Basically, I guess because I want F3 to be about the stories and the contributors, and not me.

Cycle 1 submissions were a little slow, so I decided to see if I could get the first story prompt to work for me.

I’ll admit. After I posted the first F3 prompt, “Why aren’t shoes ever abandoned in pairs?” I was pretty apprehensive. I had done a story years ago, in college, about the lone shoe on a highway phenomena. I got an A, but thinking back on it, it was a pretty miserable story. Not tone, it was just bad.

So last night, and way early this morning. I wrote “Mary Lou’s Lost Shoe.”

I hope you enjoy. Be sure to leave me comments, critiques.
