Get Your Flash On

News Flash: Vote for my story!

Today I am co-hosting the Get Your Flash On blog hop with the amazing CherylAnne Ham. Here is how it works:

Read my awesome flash fiction piece below starting with the word Thwack!.

Some time before the end of the day next Friday write your own flash fiction piece starting with the word Thwack! (in 500 words or less), post it on your blog and use the linky thing-a-ma-jig to link up the post.

Hop around to to all the other linked up blogs to check out their Thwack! flash fiction.

Also, grabs this totally cool button that yours truly made and slap it up on your blog.

That's it. Easy and fun right?

You can also hop over to CherylAnne's Blog and check out her post. The linky thing-a-ma-jig is magic so you can link on either blog and it will show up on both. You can also grab the thing-a-ma-jig and share in the blog hop fun.

Flash Fiction


Thwack! Thwack! Thwack!

Mary swung the board down on the fist sized remains of the furry, eight legged monster.

"Mary!" Jane called. "Mary!" She repeated when Mary did not respond.

Mary looked up and said, "What?!"

"I think it is dead." Jane told her. "You can stop now."

Mary looked back at the crumpled mass of spider. She swung the board down one more time.


She dropped the board and walked away. "Now it's dead."


  1. What a fun piece. I love it. Mary is smart to make sure that spider is extra dead. LOL I hate those creepy buggers. :D

  2. Hey, are you familiar with LDStoryMakers? It's a guild for LDS authors, and they have a BIG conference every spring. 2012 is set for May 4-5 in Provo. I am trying really hard to make it this coming year. You can read more about the conference and past years here:
    The classes (and food!) sound amazing!!!
