Hot Flash


“I’ll always be here for you.”

At the sound of his voice, the wine glass slipped from her hand over the balcony. Wistfully, she entertained following it, so he would be truthful.

Welcome to "Flash in the Pan"

Welcome to “Flash in the Pan”

The new quarter is here! This month’s Hot Flash word is wine. Rules are the same: Word limit 50. This one weighs in at a mere 32.

If you are new to the game, click the sign and be transported to the Flash in the Pan page for this quarter. All the others are linked under the FTP button beneath the header.

This quarter’s theme is From the Bistro. The Redmund Production of FTP has two books currently available. The first ebook has always been free. Today, in celebration of the new quarter, the second ebook is free, too! Double up and pay nothing. Visit RedmundPro and use the discount code FTP2FREE. (Yes, CAPS count.) This is definitely not an April Fool’s joke.

Grab them both and find out why flash fiction is addictive for readers as much as for writers! By the time you are done, you will be chomping at the bit for FTP3: Wave of Emotion, out on 01MAY13. Since there are three authors whose words have never been published on the net, I can guarantee you are in for some surprises!

Happy Flashing!

Why is what he says untrue? What would she do differently if she did follow the wine glass? Are you getting in on this quarter’s flash?

    I’m am thrilled that you started following my blog.
    I am most certainly captivated with your websites and have book marked them.
    You are a woman with a tremendous amount of character and strength and I for one look forward to getting to know you…

    • Welcome, Amber. Stop by the Green Room (on the top menu) and leave a link to your new blog. There are others in The M3 Readers who will enjoy what you have to offer. xxx

  2. Um, following the wine glass means she won’t hear what he has to say, people tend to go splat. Of course I’m picturing her twenty so stories up…

    • I did, too. I was seeing balcony of some corporate dinner party. Yes, if splat would make it true…

  3. I think I’ll ‘have a go’ this quarter, Red…

    • I would love it! Grab the words on the FTP page. The more the merrier! Starting early is a good thing.

      • OK, I’ve entered my first piece, Red, 49 words. Hopefully I’ve done it correctly…

        • I did not get a pingback. Did you link back here?

          • I did (I think)! I’ve just followed the link from my post and it brought me here, to this page… but I’ve probably missed an important step, which was why I left the comment as well, to make sure…!

          • Found it. It was not here when I loaded comments, but when I refreshed, it was wiggling in the net. I got it. Go see. You are the first one on the new page!

  4. What a waste of good wine and going splat might hurt. She’s not a happy woman but this is a delightful flash.

  6. I love this! I think though she is hearing a voice from her past, a voice no longer in the world.
