For the first time in a while I entered Cracked Flash Fiction weekly contest with my story The Big Bad Wolf. Like every week the opening line prompt was the line:

As you’ll notice below the break I did change the prompt a little bit but Cracked Flash Fiction were quite happy with the change. You can find out more about that and other information about the story in my Author’s Notes post coming later this week.
Last Friday I entered Microcosms for the fourth time with my tale The New World. For the first time I used the three prompt words they got from the spinner. They were:
- Character: fairy
- Setting: ocean

Last Friday I entered Microcosms 9 with my flash fiction tale Anywhere Else. Thanks to the Microcosms spinner the three-story elements I had to work with were
- Character – Servant Girl
- Setting – Castle
- Genre – Steampunk
- Of course these three elements point to an alternative version of the Cinderella story with brass chimney. You can see the story below and find how I did after the break.
