Flash in the Pan

Eileen’s hand shook as she reached for the sugar bowl. Her movements were erratic as she spooned the eighth teaspoon into the demitasse. The inky liquid neared the brim.

She absently lolled the spoon aroud before dipping it back into the sugar. When she put it to her lips, she gagged on the syrup.

The coffee slipped down the drain as she thought of the last time she remembered eating. “What day was he here?”


Welcome to "Flash in the Pan"

Welcome to “Flash in the Pan”

The first month is over. That means a 75-word upper limit. This flash comes in on the money featuring the word erratic.

CoversQ313Did you miss the post yesterday? Finding the Path is out! Stop by RedmundPro to pick up your copy of the book and see who got a country of their own.

How many flashes have you done? Have you been to see some of the newest flashers? Drop by their places and tell them I sent you. Do wipe your feet. It is only polite.

Happy Flashing!

Who is he?

    I will definitely take a look at the newbies, just kidding I am sure that all that take part are brilliant writers. I am well behind this quarter but never fear, the words offered will be completed before the deadline of December 31st 🙂

    I know that I have already thanked you but again, thank you for adding me to the front cover of ‘Finding the Path’, it is an honour my great friend.
