A few weeks back I mentioned the picture prompt writing contest that Tamela J. Ritter was running on her blog; submissions for that closed with some very good very short stories submitted (read them here).
While Tamela hasn't announced the winner yet (*FINGERS CROSSED FOR MY POST-APOCALYPTIC LOVE STORY ABOUT THE FROZEN GIRL...*) there's another one of these going on, at Porscha Coleman's blog (on Porscha Coleman.com).
Porscha says she is a writer, poet, and occasional radio show host. She's posted the picture prompt and welcomes your submission (including poetry, if you are so inclined) until October 31. Check it out. These things are fun, and trying to write from a prompt is a good way to challenge yourself and stretch your limits.
Here's the picture she's using.
And you'd click here to go leave your story.
And don't forget to pick up The HORROR Issue of our magazine to see the flash fiction horror stories that scared the IWM writers enough to put them in that issue.
