Flash in the Pan

“Go down to the hardware and turn down Chestnut. Then, go down ’til you see the big oak tree that got hit by lightnin’. Go down that street past the big yella house on your left.”

“Is it much further?”

“No, just go down the next street for a couple miles. Take the left fork and go down Pearl Avenue. It is down past the water tower.”

“Would that be Satan’s ice water tank?”

Welcome to "Flash in the Pan"

Welcome to “Flash in the Pan”

This directionally-challenged flash comes it at 74 words against a 100-word upper limit. In a twist of unusual fate, the flash word appears seven times: down

This quarter’s book is called Finding the Path. All of the words are themed by directions. Have you seen them? Stop by the Flash in the Pan page to get ahead or catch up. The Hot Flash for July is already out!

Happy Flashing!

Do you know someone who gives girl directions? Why is the water tower Satan’s? To you, is south the same as down?

  2. Hi Red, I’m back once again! And I’m trying to get my writing mojo back as well with this attempt:
    I have a few more flashes, but one a day will suffice for now… hope you are well!

    • This is a great way to get your mojo back. There are a few other authors who are using FTP to springboard back into writing all the time. Glad to see you back.
