To be honest, I wasn’t going to participate in this round. I hadn’t a single flash of inspiration for it. None of the terms spoke to me (last time the word ‘stillborn’ not only inspired my short story ‘The Feud’, but it also brought Delaney into existence). But Merrilee asked if I was writing anything (we both lamented the lack of an idea), then I told Tama about it, and the bastard called me out.
So, I’m writing something. Thank goodness it’s flash fiction! 1,000 words at most, though I have a feeling mine won’t make it that far. I only have a couple hundred words, but I won’t need long to knock the rest out. Then it’s back to Skaazi and the invasion of earth. Fun times.
Anyways, go check out the search terms, maybe an idea will spark. I’m looking forward to reading what other people have come up with.
Obviously I’m feeling somewhat better. I’m still coughing lots and my voice comes and goes, and I’m still dizzy. But otherwise? Just dandy 🙂
