Below are the links to the last two times I've participated (over a year ago, yikes!):
God flash fiction is extremely difficult, and I think this is exactly what I need to work on that will strengthen my writing.
For this week, we had to do the following:
- Use the below photo
- Incorporate a marriage proposal into our piece
- Word count between 140-160
Here's the photo prompt:
