Friday Noir: A Real Cool Killer Car
I often pass her.
Had no idea what her story or history was.
The overgrowth, the ravages of life just strangling her…
Kinda sounds like the start to some contemporary crime fiction / noir, eh?
Truth is, I often pass this car. Don’t know it’s story or it’s history. I’m not even sure what kind it is (though I think it’s in the mid 1970’s era Gran Torino family)
So…to flesh it out a bit more…to create said history,,,I enlisted some professionals to help me. I put it out there to a bunch of my writer friends:
Here’s your story starter. Give me a story. Flash fiction style, 1,500 words or less.
Three came home. Read ’em below.
Wait! Before you go a-clickin’ and reading…these stories aren’t for all. There’s crime. There’s violence. There’s words you won’t hear in Sunday school (though maybe in the 700 Level of the old Vet Stadium in Philly.) Be forewarned.
But these gents put together stories of this car. Around this car. As this car.
My challenge to you, dear readers, is to read these stories. And by power of the comments section, the story that gets the most votes, that author will get a 16×22 JerseyStyle Photography print of their choice.
Their fate (and their potentially bare walls) is in your hands.
So, give a read, and enjoy some delicious crime fiction as we fling off summer to start this long holiday weekend here in the United States.
Boys…the JSP blog is yours.
There you have it. Three tales. Tell me below with one you like best and that guy gets the goods.
And if your comment is exceptional as to why you like a particular story, you’ll get a print as well.
A real cool deal, no?
(By the way…the title of this post…a riff on this classic…)
