ATA Flash Fiction Winner


Our 2018 - Week 14 Winner is ...

I am honored and grateful for everyone taking part in this challenge. I can't begin to tell you how much I enjoy watching you stretch your wings, try something new and sometimes step outside the bounds of what you thought you could do.

Flash fiction allows you to hone your craft in small bite sized pieces, and I am honored to be a part of that.

Thank you, as always, for sharing your talent with us.

The Prompt:

The entries:

Our first entry is a tricky thing. There is a reason most people do not write in 2nd person, while it can be used to great effect, sometimes it's just hard to read. When it is used properly, as it was in this story, it can have a very profound effect. If you have ever had that moment when you look at yourself and think "I'm going to work. just like a real adult" you'll understand what I'm talking about.

Our second entry is an interesting reflection on taking what you have for granted that brings to mind an old Helen Keller quote, "I cried because I had no shoes, until I met a man with no feet." It's a stark remind that what is normal for you may not be for someone else and its easy to see when someone is looking down on you, and hard when you realize... there's some of that person, in you.

Winner - Jostein Wolff "Let them Eat Cake"

This story skips in time in a person's memory and you don't really realize that it is a reflection until the end Very well done
