Today is the last day of February. The 28th.
Even though it is NOT a leap year
we invite you to write a piece of Flashy Fiction
that involves a leap of some kind.

You're dodging a bullet.
Making a leap of faith.
Jumping for joy.
Or you're just plain jolly. 

Even a jump to conclusions could be considered a leap.

Treetop Travelers

  A bridge between trees.  Who built it?  What's it span?  How'd you get here?  Write a little Flashy Fiction that incorporates the who, how, or why of the bridge.

Julie Andrews

Mary or Maria?  Nanny or almost Nun?  Julie Andrews captivated audiences as both Mary Poppins and Maria Von Trapp, helping The Sound of Music become the 3rd highest grossing film of all-time based on price-adjusted box office receipts.  Today, write a little Flashy Fiction based on Mary, Maria, or one of the other characters Julie Andrews played...or re-write part of one of the stories to reflect how you think it should have gone down.

Write a little something!

I've got your back

Use the line, "I've got your back" somewhere in your fiction today.  Create any scene you wish where someone steps up and covers for someone else... or saves them.

Whao, Nelly!

What's your story about today? Soothing a savage beast? Breaking a wild stallion? House training a puppy? Maybe you don't have time for that and you just need to mount up and ride.  Write a little Flashy Fiction about interacting with the animals.

(Short) (Love) Story

February 14th, Valentine’s Day, is coming…so today, tell us a love story. Eternal devotion or extreme heartbreak. Puppy love or ain’t nothin’ but a hound dog. Happily ever after or see ya, sucker. 

But here’s the catch, Love: tell it in just 14 words or less.

An Excerpt to Insert

As I walked through the wilderness of this world, I lighted on a certain place where was a Den, and I laid me down in that place to sleep: and, as I slept, I dreamed a dream.
