March Flash Fiction Draw Roundup

The stories are in! First thing first? Huge appreciative thanks to everyone who took part. Recent events in queer romance have us all a little dented, I think, so focusing on a romance flash fiction piece might have been some pretty awful timing, but I’m so happy to see such wonderful stories. You’re all amazing.

So, what is this?

Well, the Flash Fiction Draw is basically a randomized card-draw that spits out a genre, an object, and a location, after which writers have a week to come up with up to 1,000 words that fit the criteria. It’s meant to be for fun and inspiration, rather than for serious competition. I do a draw on the first Monday of every month (the next draw will be April 2nd, if you want to join in) and post results the following Monday, updating the post as I find new stories writers have written.

These were the cards drawn (and what they meant):

Given “Romance,” “A VHS Cassette,” and “A Fire Watch Tower,” are you ready for the results?

Here they are, alphabetically by contributor:

Lilly Amadu wrote “Light My Fire.”
Jeff Baker wrote “The Men Upstairs.”
‘Nathan Burgoine (that’s me) wrote “Where There Was Smoke.”
Alex deMorra wrote “Everything Was Fine.”
Cait Gordon wrote “I Wont Fogget About You.”
Elizabeth Lister wrote “Scrabble.”
Ralph Seligman-Courtois wrote “Guard on Duty.”
E.H. Timms wrote “Flapjack and Fire-towers.”
Jamieson Wolf wrote “The Colour of Our Love.”

Did I miss your entry? Let me know and I’ll add you to the list! And by all means join us next month, when I do the draw again on April 2nd. And if you want to see what people came up with for previous stories? The round-up for January (which was “A Fairy Tale,” “A Tattoo Machine,” and “A Prison”) is here. And the round-up for February (which was “A Crime Caper,” “A Compass,” and “A Soup Kitchen”) is here.
