Mid-Week Blues-Buster Week 2.51 – The B.B. King Memorial Edition
Welcome to the Mid-Week Blues-Buster Flash Fiction Challenge, Year 2, Week 51.
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.
We lost a music legend last week with the passing of blues master B.B. King.
B.B. is just too big a figure in the music world to pick just one song for a prompt so we’re doing something special in his memory.
This week there will be three song prompts. You can choose one, choose two, or find a way to tie in all three if you like.
The tunes and links are;
“Three O’Clock Blues”… https://youtu.be/nPeTtg3fTB8
“The Thrill is Gone”… https://youtu.be/buP4ZjXjOgA
“There Must Be a Better World Somewhere”… https://youtu.be/V__g_D8TLTI
This week’s Judge is author, theatre addict, and music aficionado… Mona Bliss!
The challenge opens the moment you read this post and runs through MIDNIGHT PACIFIC TIME on Friday May 22nd.
Now… Go write!!!!
