Flash Fiction Month 2016  
At the moment I'm taking part in Flash Fiction Month over on DA - writing a story of 55 to 1,000 words each day of July.

Here's links to the first batch, if anyone wants to have a look:

Noir Comedy

Dream Job

Blue Fairy


Red Herring

The Hearing Aid

Underneath the Stars

Laura's Debut

Author's Pick: Noir Comedy! A humorous crossover between Commedia dell'arte and Detective Noir. (Oh, there was some Googling that day...)

You know I'm a big noir fan and yours was wonderful. I also like masquerade masks (Inky will lend you his Plague Doctor one if you need another.). I don't have an account on that site, so I can't comment there, but I'll collect them and leave them here.

I read them all. Very clever. I like the herring one after the noir one. And I'm impressed that you gave somber a go in the last one. And a shout out to the city nearest me in the undercover one.

Thanks so much for reading them ^_^

I do think Noir Comedy is my best one so far. It's the wonderful thing about FFM - you get all these weird challenges and think: "Crikey, I can't do that." And then you do have a go and sometimes you get something really good out of it ^^

I used that particular city because it is mentioned in connection with Kate Warne and her work. But I have to say I have a lot of affection for the place because of Homicide: Life On The Street ^_^ I loved Andre Braugher's character - I so looked up to him.

Enjoyed reading these, impressed with your range and ability to twist things around so neatly.
Liked noir comedy and Laura's debut best, then Blue Fairy...but all raised a smile

Thank you very much ^__^ I'm particularly pleased you liked Laura's Debut - I was a bit unsure about that one ^^

Odd. Other people seem to be able to access them, but the only ones I can are Noir Comedy and Blue Fairy. Great last lines for both!

Sorry - I don't know what's going on there ^^" I've just checked all the links and they're working for me. (I'm using Google Chrome, if that makes a difference.)

But thank you so much for reading what you were able to access, and thank you for your kind words ^_^

Sorry, just catching up.

I particularly enjoyed Red Herring.

Thank you - and thanks for taking the time to look at them in general ^__^
