Friday Challenge for 9/9

"Red in Snow" (source unknown)
For those of us who enjoy playing Flash Fiction Friday, there was a void in our blogging lives last week when our host, PB, didn't post a Friday challenge. I e-mailed him last week to ask if everything was okay, and haven't yet received a response.

With a second week rapidly passing, I thought I would post a pic, in case anyone would like to play along. I am definitely *not* trying to tread on PB's turf - I hope he's well, and that he'll return to hosting FFF very soon.

So here goes: the challenge for this Friday is to use the picture above to write a story of 200-225 words. There's no required phrase. I won't be checking word counts, or verifying the lack of the required phrase, but anyone who wants to see me after class is welcome to come in any time. :-)

I won't be collecting links of participants, but you're welcome to leave a comment here if you're playing.

Please re-post or spread the word to anyone who might be interested in playing. And if you see PB, tell him we miss him and to hurry back!


  1. Great picture, Max! I was wondering what happened to FFF and PB. Hope all is well with him.

  2. I don't like the substitute teacher. He makes us work too hard--minimum 200 words! :p


    P.S. Thanks Max, I might have to stay after for tutoring.

  3. Thanks Max, I'll play along

  4. I'll try to play along, too. Try. ;-)

  5. Okay, I'm in too. I can't resist the picture.
