Welcome to "Flash in the Pan"

Welcome to “Flash in the Pan”

This is the first of this quarter’s Hot Flash! words. Against the 50-word upper limit, this little number squeaks in at 24. The feature word is remote.

The theme of this quarter is Boys and Their Toys. If you missed the first word, stop by Flash is Back! All deadline information is updated on the Flash in the Pan page at the left link under the header image. Join us for another full run of flash prompts!

Happy Flashing!
