I have not paid much attention to flash fiction, because it is hip, and I am the polar opposite of hip. But we dabbled in it a bit at Magna Cum Murder and now I am feeling all “with it.” One of the really cool micro-flash fiction categories is the Six Word Story. It will not be a surprise that at the conference our goal was to craft six words into teeny weeny mysteries. And because I can actually get six words on paper fairly regularly, I am debuting Six Word Mystery Friday. Mine will be illustrated, because I get a twisted pleasure from portraying an ordinary image a creepy context. You’re welcome.
This one is Halloween-themed, so pretend this is last Friday.
