The Clarity of Night's "Uncovered" Short Fiction Contest


I'm a little late on this one, and for that I apologize, dear readers. Jason Evans, proprietor of The Clarity of Night writing blog, is hosting his thirteenth-annual flash fiction contest, this one inspired by Stephen Parrish's The Tavernier Stones. See that picture above? Write a flash fiction piece or poem using that image as your prompt, and you could snag part of the $290 in prize money. Email your entries to jevanswriter [at] yahoo [dot] com from July 19th to the 29th. Full details are
here.

For some reason, pictures do not inspire stories--for me, that is. Strange.

They don't necessarily inspire me either, but they do give me a starting off point, which can lead to interesting results.

This picture-prompt has me stumped, not that there aren't several obvious paths to go down, but I am not satisfied with the stories I am creating.

Except someone pointed out a string of words I had jotted and that's begun a snowball that I fear will barrel past the 250 word limit. Unless it roars to a halt unfinished.

You and me both, B.

B. Nagel said...

DID YOU STEAL MY STRING OF WORDS?!

Oh, you mean the stumping.

Snowballs are good, especially in July.
