Winner Winner Flash Fiction Dinner
Remember way back when I posted this photo as a story starter for any hardy soul that wanted to craft a piece of flash fiction around it?
Two writer, Bill Baber and Ryan Sayles, took up the gauntlet and wrote two stories. After tallying up the votes…..Ryan Sayles won with Nearly Fifty Years Ago. (PDF of story)
It’s interesting to me that both writers kind of played off the same theme and idea of two men and revenge. And both are noir-ish sort of tales, though I didn’t ask for that genre specifically.
The reason I thought this would make a good story starter, though, are the two people in the right-hand corner. To me, that’s where I had questions: Who were they? Are they arguing? Discussing something? Getting together? Breaking up? And what’s with the white couch on the curb?
Anyway, good stories both. Congratulations to Ryan. He wins a JSP print (not a dinner, as suggested in the title here.)
I also promised a print to someone who left a comment on the original post. After a painstaking process to select a winner (ok, I wrote the names on slips of paper and put them in my Stone Pony baseball cap, and pulled one out…) the winner is…
See, I didn’t even look at the name on the paper until after the photo was snapped. Didn’t even have it right-side up.
(Bruce is a really good writer himself. He and I appeared in Dark Corners Vol 1 Issue 3 last year. )
Bruce, contact me at email@example.com and we’ll discuss how to select and get your print.
Congrats to Ryan and Bruce. Thanks for joining in the fun, everyone!
