*Inexplicably I can’t find the Ambulatory Molusc’s post. Actually this might not be inexplicable, as since about Wednesday our household has been in a tail spin. We won’t bore you with details of our grief, but I think we’ve reached a point we can function again. And while I normally use Sunday for indie work and sometimes even a few hours off, today I need to work, to compensate for the days I missed. So, I’ll be by now and then. – SAH*
So what’s a vignette? You might know them as flash fiction, or even just sketches. We will provide a prompt each Sunday that you can use directly (including it in your work) or just as an inspiration. You, in turn, will write about 50 words (yes, we are going for short shorts! Not even a Drabble 100 words, just half that!). Then post it! For an additional challenge, you can aim to make it exactly 50 words, if you like.
We recommend that if you have an original vignette, you post that as a new reply. If you are commenting on someone’s vignette, then post that as a reply to the vignette. Comments — this is writing practice, so comments should be aimed at helping someone be a better writer, not at crushing them. And since these are likely to be drafts, don’t jump up and down too hard on typos and grammar.
If you have questions, feel free to ask.
Your writing prompt this week is unlikely.
