Re: May 2016 - 3 Flash to 1 Short Challenge - Week 3

I cannot say whether or not you should spend time in Bellevue... that calls for much more analysis than I'm willing to give at this time... LOONEY TOONEY! And I can't find the words that did not make sense now... apparently I read them wrong or my mind has turned looney as well. I think the two para...

Re: June 2016 - 3 Flash to 1 Short Challenge - Full Prompt

I'm curious if it's easier or better to know the prompts in advance rather than on a weekly basis.

Re: May 2016 - 3 Flash to 1 Short Challenge - Week 3

Interesting how you brought the two characters together. This portion of the story is a little bit scattered and I had a hard time following. There were just some areas where the wrong word was added, etc. and it distracted me a bit (I'm sure when you do a final draft, you will catch them). I"m...

Paul, your story so far has me very interested in what the heck is going on. Both of your characters are drawing my attention and I love where you're going with it even though I have no idea where we're going.

Keep it up!!

I really want to see the rest!

Nice!

More intensity and I love how it makes me anxious to know what's going to happen next... who gets saved, if anyone, and what might happen over all!

Love it. Again.. sorry I took so long to come back and comment.

Hi JB... Sorry I didn't answer this sooner. I saw it come across my screen and then life sucked me in (more specifically, 'work' took over my life). This second part is exciting! It has a lot of action and really makes me want to know what's going to happen next and how everything will come together...

I like it Paul! Kept my attention and I felt like I was in wonderland a bit. These prompts don't have to be followed 'exactly' so where you took it is perfectly fine. Now on to part two for you however... up to you if you use it but it's definitely part of the challenge. :) Week 2 - Use the followin...

Re: May 2016 - 3 Flash to 1 Short Challenge - Week 1

Hey, this is a good first flash for the challenge! I like how it leaves us wanting more but could actually be a complete flash fiction. I don't think I'm sure of which prompt you are doing... I'm guessing the first one. and if so... on to part 2... Week 2 -Write a story from the viewpoint of another...

Re: May 2016 - 3 Flash to 1 Short Challenge!!

So I forgot to mention that the first should really be a flash fiction which is a very short story. If you're have already written something longer, that's fine, but it's 3 flash fiction and then a final short combining them. Here's what I originally posted... Each week a new prompt of the challenge...
