Flash Fiction Month 2016: Part 2  
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 my next batch of stories, if anyone wants to take a look:

Planning is Key

Rock Vs. Paper Vs. Scissors

Find The Missing Word

Um and Er

Away With The Fairies

It's Tea Time

The Power of Laughter

Lock Up Your Daughters

Kissers and Cakeholes

Or you can find all my stories grouped together here.

Author's Choice: Find The Missing Word! A wordplay mystery in the form of a 369'er - that is, three separate but interrelated stories of exactly 69 words each.

All the creativity that goes into these is very impressive. And that you sink that much into it day after day is just remarkable. Even finding names would exhaust me.

I did like The Missing Word and Rock vs. Paper vs. Scissors and the parasol one. Nice to see you working through your issue with the tea one and getting your apiology on in the bee one.

I would say you're coming up with exactly the same amount of creativity each day for JWP - even without having to choose the character names ^_^

Thanks so much for reading the stories - and bees are getting everywhere, aren't they? ^_^

Maybe thesmallhobbit said it better. It just seems very complex. The prompts aren't just a word or phrase and all the different genres and forms. Anyway, all the kudos to you.

Thay're all brilliant! I can't really say one is the best, but, while I agree 'Find The Missing Word' is a most moving fic with socially redeeming value, there is something about 'Lock Up Yur Daughters'...

Thanks ^_^ Lock Up Your Daughters does make me smile ^^

I was talking bees a little with someone, and linked her to LUYD. Passing on her wonderful.

Very productive! My favourite is Lock Up Your Daughters

I'm totally impressed with all you've done - especially as the prompts and additional sections can be quite complex.

The challenges do give your brain a workout ^^" But I've learnt they're never quite as complicated as they appear at first sight - it just takes a bit of planning.

And I'm glad you liked Lock Up Your Daughters - I like that one too ^_^

Awed by your inventiveness...particularly explaining the birds and the bees to a bee or two
Franklesscfrankles on July 17th, 2016 09:45 pm (UTC)
Thanks - that one seems to be the most popular ^_^

I don't know how you keep this going.
