This is the final flash for this edition of Flash in the Pan. It comes in on the money at precisely 125 words. Tonight’s word is splash.
Everyone interested in playing along with FTP need only pick one of the featured words, write a flash (staying under or at the maximum number of words for the month), and link back to the post where the word is featured. If you would like to get ahead or catch up, the words are posted on the Flash in the Pan page where your flashes will be linked.
