Flash Fiction Post 60 – The Escape

Morning everyone. During 2017 I participated in a writing challenge called 12 in 12. The idea was that each participant would write a short story each month for 12 months. The story had to be a response to a ‘prompt’ like ‘The List” or ‘A White Lie’ or ‘Going Home’ and it had to be a specified number of words, delivered on a specific deadline date. Each participant also had to review at least four […]

All other infrequent post types will obviously take place as and when they are […]
