Mid-Week Blues-Buster Week 28
Welcome to the Mid-Week Blues-Buster Flash Fiction Challenge, Week 28.
This is a flash fiction challenge. The prompt is a song. You are not required to write about or even mention the song. It’s there only to get the ideas moving around in your brain pan. If you want to write about the song (or the video- it’s all good here) go for it but don’t feel like you have to.
500 words, but it’s a slushy 500, meaning you can go up to 700 or as low as 300.
Post your entry right in the comments section of this post.
MAKE SURE TO PUT YOUR TWITTER HANDLE NEXT TO YOUR WORD COUNT AT THE BOTTOM OF YOUR POST. IF YOU’RE NOT ON TWITTER GIVE ME AN EMAIL ADDRESS OR SOME OTHER WAY TO GET A HOLD OF YOU!
The challenge starts whenever I post this on Tuesday and ends at 4:30PM Pacific Time on Friday. You read that right. Pacific Time.
I’ve decided to stick with the movie motif for this week’s song prompt.
We’ll be using a tune sung by Italian crooner Fiorello, with Jude Law and Matt Damon riding shotgun, ably backed up by the Guy Barker International Quartet, from, “The Talented Mr. Ripley”.
The song is; “Tu Vuo’ Fa L’Americano”. Here’s the link; http://youtu.be/MXtxR1gHZIk
This week’s Judge is author, mentor, and friend, KD McCrite!
So you’ve got all the particulars. The challenge is open from the moment you read this post until 4:30PM Pacific Time on Friday August 30th.
Now go write!!!!!
