Winner 55 Word Challenge
Lisa was correct when she said this was a difficult batch of stories to choose from. With a story of only 55 words, every word counts even more than with the “average” flash fiction story. So, that being said here are my picks:
Raymond C. Morris – This story had a very creepy post-apocalyptic feel to it. Wish you’d have had more room to flesh it out a bit.
Rebekah Postupak – This story appealed to the prompts on both a literal and figurative level. Not all monsters are imaginary is a good reminder here.
Afsaneh - This story mated with the photo prompt well. It would have had even more impact with less repetition of phrases. Again, in a 55-word story every word has to count.
Ryan Strohman – Though several of the stories revolved around this photo, I felt yours had a very nice flow to it, combining longer and shorter phrases to set a pace for the read. I also liked the way it approached the prompt in both a literal and figurative level.
Here is Ryan's winning story!
