Flash Fiction Friday

Flash Fiction Friday #7

I can’t believe it is already Friday, and I’m heading into a 3-day weekend as it is 4th of July here in the states. As such, it’s an FFF theme week! I know not every is patriotic, nor does everyone celebrate the 4th, but the theme could easily be twisted a dozen different ways.

Prompt 7:

Write 100-200 words in response to the theme “Independence Day.” If you aren’t in the U.S. or don’t celebrate this particular holiday, stick with the theme of “Independence.”

Go Here to Read the Rules (because, yes…there are etiquette expectations). Then write up your story and share it here. Afterward, be sure to read the other entries and vote for the ones you like best! Link-ups will open Fridays at noon (PST) and run through the following Friday at noon (PST).

NOTE: It’s perfectly okay to NOT follow the prompt/challenge. If you want to go your own way with your flash fiction, just keep it at 500 words or less.

If you have prompt ideas or images I can use, please send them my way!

Here is the badge:

And the social media hashtag is simply #flashfictionfriday.

Thanks for playing! I hope you find the challenges fun and inspiring.
