F-F-F #14, The Stories

Rowdy Girl is all jacked up for this week's Friday Flash Fiction...

...Look at her, she can hardly contain herself, or her dentures.

Well, before everyone settled themselves into a comfortable rut, I posted the starter sentence- Well, how did I get here?

With the conditions that, "The story cannot center around a crime and it cannot be set in a post-apocalyptic world. It also cannot be a pseudo-existentialist piece."

"Why?" do you ask? Because what I wanted us to do is, "less Raymond Chandler, less Richard Matheson and definitely less Sartre, with more Raymond Carver. The whole idea is to push each and every author here, out of their genre comfort zone."

Let's see what happened-

Randal drops us off in the Old West.

Dave Barber shows the all too wrong side of a popular cultural icon.

Doc relates a tale of a character that has everything come to him, slowly.

The Professor spins a yarn of someone who would probably want to forget everything.

Freida's narrator debates the values of therapy.
