Welcome to Flash Fiction Friday and the one hundred and second in this series.
If you’re a regular viewer to this blog (thank you! – if you’re not, welcome / welcome back!), you will know that these stories usually go up on a Friday evening (UK time), but I have changed the format so I am only posting a main item once a day (7am UK time). There will still be the writing prompts every weekday and 5pm Fiction, which will also be weekdays only, returns from its summer break on Monday. This will cut down on my workload but also on the amount you have to get through here each day, and hopefully have more time to read some of the older posts you might have missed. So, thank you for being here and I hope you enjoy your stay.
Back to business… this week’s FFF is the second bunch of 6-word stories by a variety of authors, together with their 6-word biographies! These stories will be podcasted in episode 33 (with three <500-word stories)) on Sunday 3rd November.
