A Picture’s Worth 250 Words

A bit of shameless self-promotion today, dear readers, but hold on, the fit will soon pass. Jason Evans, proprietor of The Clarity of Night, is running an online flash fiction contest called "In Vino Veritas." With the picture to your right as inspiration, contestants must craft a short short no longer than 250 words. There's a whole bevy of worthwhile narratives up for your perusal, including "Claret" by yours truly, which may or may not be worthwhile but somehow didn't get rejected outright. You can access the entire list of entries here and "Claret" here. Comments, critiques and revilings are always welcome.

Chilling.

Yay! Just want I wanted. Actually, I read this to my wife while she was under the weather and she liked it, which made me believe it was fit for general consumption.

It is the standard by which I am judging all of the other entries. What can I say? You da Boss.

Too kind, madam, too kind. But we're still anticipating yours!
