Thanks for the mention, Anne! I have to say that excitement does seem to be mounting. Last contest had 41 entries. We'll see about this one.

Anne is a bad, bad person. Now I have gone and embarrassed myself and everything.

Gosh, last time I wrote fiction... I don't remember it being fun, like that. What happened?

Thank you, Anne & Jason. :)

emeraldcite: i loved your entry! great mood and description.

bekbek: really nice! i don't envy jason one bit. this will be tough.

it is fun, isn't it? i became addicted to flash fiction this winter. i thought i would need shock therapy to get over it.
