She looks like a rabbit, twitching her nose like that. He watched as her lids half closed, and her mouth fell slack. Her breathing slowed.

This is the beginning of the second edition of Flash in the Pan. The upper limit for October is 75 words, and this entry is a mere 49 words. The word of the week is pepper.
The theme of this edition is multipurpose words. All of the words featured in this quarter’s production will be used as either nouns or verbs, depending entirely on the images you conjure when you see the word.
We will be exploring both ends of the word limits in this edition. If you are brave enough to face a 50 word limit, do let me know. Debate left this month at 75, against my better judgment.
If you are playing along for Flash in the Pan, or would like to join for the first time, visit the Flash in the Pan page to see the whys and wherefores on how to get started.
I am pleased to announce there were over 60 entries to the first edition of FTP. It will be available for download at Redmund Productions at the launch.
Thank you for your enthusiastic support of both flash fiction and FTP at the M3 Blog.
Do you have something which makes you sneeze? Do you have a surefire way of making yourself sneeze? Who is ready for the new flash fiction prompts?
