This weeks Flash Fiction challenge hosted at is a picture based challenge. He gave us a link to a website that showed us 24 truly astonishing pictures from places you would struggle to believe actually existed and weren’t Photoshop creations.

It has been a long time since I last wrote something for one of Chuck Wendig’s Friday flash fiction challenges.

This weeks Flash Fiction challenge hosted by was rather tricky. Mr Wendig gave us a randomly generated sentence which we had to include somewhere in our piece of 1000 word flash fiction. The sentence was… “A novice revenges the rhythm” It is a rather difficult sentence to use in its natural form due to a few grammatical inconsistencies. However, […]
