Mid-Week Blues-Buster Week 2.30
Welcome to the Mid-Week Blues-Buster Flash Fiction Challenge, Year 2, Week 30.
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 MIDNIGHT Pacific Time on Friday. You read that right. Pacific Time.
This week’s song prompt is a great tune by indie rockers Cowboy Mouth.
The song is… “Man On the Run”. Here’s the link; http://youtu.be/cmLmWBPcs7I
Due to problems my European friends are having with the YouTube link I’m going to post some alternative ways to hear the song;
For Spotify users; https://play.spotify.com/album/3czlqmZ7ujWQEQymURqK4h
A very, very rough live video from YouTube; http://youtu.be/Nwr9f-Qs0ao
And… a link to the song lyrics if you’d just like to read them; http://lyrics-keeper.com/en/cowboy-mouth/man-on-the-run.html
Hopefully, at least one of these solutions helps.
This week’s Judge is editor extraordinaire Karmin Dahl!
The challenge opens the moment you read this post and runs through MIDNIGHT PACIFIC TIME on Friday December 26th.
Now… Go write!!!
