F3 – Cycle 6 – Cross Country

I’d been lax in contributing to Flash Fiction Friday, but since I kind of manage the project I thought I ought to give it a try at this week’s (Cycle 6) prompt that was provided by Darren Miller. The prompt was a classic starter sentice: “The train seemed unusually empty this morning.”

This is what I came up with in a quick couple hours. And it’s a little different from what I usually write.

Cross Country

Hope you enjoy. Crits and Comments always welcomed. I expect some editorial mistakes.

The Needle And The Damage Done

Steve Weddle held a writing challenge this last week in the name of Hilary Davidson. The prize her book, THE DAMAGE DONE, signed. Pretty sweet. Only requirements were that it reference Canadian Neil Young and actress Ava Gardner.

The story came quick, but went through several iterations. It doesn’t feel quite complete, but I hope it makes for a good story a good story and you enjoy.
