Flash fiction winner

July 3, 2007

In other news, I entered the monthly Flash fiction competition over at Scribe‘s website again this month. Regular readers will probably remember that I managed a joint second in the comp last month. Well, I’m very pleased to say that I took out first place this month after a very close decision. Only a single vote put me ahead of the second placed winner.

The theme this month was a bit different. The first sentence was supplied, with one word missing and the rest was up to the writers. There was a 300 word limit.

The opening line to be used was:

Ella glared at ________ over her shoulder and yelled, ‘Take it off the fire before it burns!’

You can find the Flash fiction story in question on the Dark Shorts page of this site, and Scribe’s site in the links on the left.

First place
