Flash Fiction Friday That Wasn’t

Hey Readers, Writers, and Friends,

What can I say? The day just got away from me. I had a school function for my kids, I had to get to the store early in the day to keep away from the rush (turns out the snow birds have descended early which means the rush is always), I pulled prompts, and then realized it’s a half day so I had to go pick up my kids. It was a crazy day, but a good one. It just means that #FLASHFICTIONFRIDAY is going to be Sassy Fiction Saturday.

I will sit down to do some free flowing short fiction tomorrow. Promise. (crosses heart)

If you are wondering here are today’s prompts: Someone who wants respect, deadline.

Feel free to play with these, and we’ll do another one tomorrow.

In the meantime, read well, write well, be well.
