F-F-F #8

Like a pumpkin-stuffed crocodile at the Sam's Club in Guangzhou...



...Friday Flash Fiction puts you on ice, with a new starter sentence. The poll is in and the people have spoken-

Randal came up with, "Warning: choking hazard, small parts, not suitable for children under 3 years was what the Li'l Edgar Allan Poe Posable Figure box said, but Johnny didn't listen because he was almost thirteen so he ripped off the head and ate it."

You know the deal, if you are in, please say so. Have it done by Tuesday @9 AM Pacific, November 3rd, okay? Don't back down from a real challenge, because this is it, Kenny Loggins. One way or another.

Starter Sentence Poll #5

Well, I hate to be mean, but I am slightly disappointed at the lack of sentences this week.




So much so, that I will unleash The Great Pumpkin on you, if you don't try harder the next time because we need that special sentence to kick things off.

Doc says let's try JJ's slogan, "Sick with a p-h."

MRMacrum says, "She may not have known where she was going, but apparently somebody did."

Randal says, "Warning: choking hazard, small parts, not suitable for children under 3 years was what the Li'l Edgar Allan Poe Posable Figure box said, but Johnny didn't listen because he was almost thirteen so he ripped off the head and ate it."

And I've brought back Übermilf's, "How could that have grown overnight?"


Now, there will be no poll next week, so expect the unexpected and The Spanish Inquisition.

You say you can't sleep?

You say that you're counting sheep?




Don't bother, they are stranded in Austria and it looks like they won't be jumping over your bed, anytime soon. Why don't you try coming up with a starter sentence, instead?

Here is a little insight...you see, back in the day, JJ's slogan was "Pugatorian. Sick with a "p-h."

So when I say, "Good night, good luck and keep plucking those chickens with a 'p-h?'" That's what that is about.



Now, Giant Toryan Robot says that you are all on fire, so keep it going with not one, but two starter sentences to choose from! Yes, it's the first ever tie in Friday Flash Fiction poll history!

Beach says, "The strange man dressed as Carmen Miranda walked into the bar and demanded to know who had taken his pet iguana."

And-

The Professor says, "On the sidewalk, fallen between the cracks was..."

You know the deal, if you are in, please say so. Have it done by Tuesday @9 AM Pacific, October 27th, okay? And if you don't? I'd suggest flame retardant underwear, because Giant Toryan Robot will find you!

Mel and his singing...never mind.

Starter Sentence Poll #3

Ante scriptum- Voting ends on October 16th @ 9 AM, Pacific Time.

I'm running little late today and what, no jpeg? No jpeg, just a straight-up poll.

For a starter sentence, you have a choice of the three that were submitted, plus I brought one back from the past to even things out.

Doc says, "You know Javier, poets say that in the spring a young man's thoughts turn to love, but I think they're wrong."

Paulie Decibels says, "Wait until the moon falls," said Alan. 'Just you wait...'"

MRMacrum says, "She decided to go anyway."

Patti Abbot says, "Uncle Ted's pants has deep pockets."

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to come up with a starter sentence for the poll, before the cat-head mannequins take over this blog.








You have until Thursday morning, October 15th at 9 AM, Pacific Time. Good luck, Jim! This post will self-destruct...eventually.

Saddle up cowgirls and cowboys, it's time to ride!



Please, think up a new starter sentence...for next week. This week has been hectic and my writing deadlines have hemmed the rest of my free time for the next few days. So I've come up with the starter sentence: "Come with me, if you want to give..."

F-F-F #4

MRMacrum has come up with the starter sentence and...



...don't cry about it, you can write through this. Have faith in your writing.
The starter sentence is: "Hanging on with one hand, he considered his alternatives."

You know the deal, if you are in, please say so. Have it done by Tuesday @9 AM Pacific, October 6th, okay? And if you do well, I might throw you a salmon or two. Jeez, you writing polar bears are sooo sensitive.

Starter Sentence Poll #2

Voting ends October 2, 9 AM.

As always, when submitting, I ask that you please limit it to your three strongest choices. If you have more than three? Save 'em up.

Let us try not to use songs or other people's stories unless they are pretty much ingrained in our popular culture and language. It would not be cool if we had an outstanding session that had to be pulled, because some overzealous lawyer decided that they have to prove to a music corporation or publisher that they are working.

Beach Bum came up with-

"Jacob had been flushed with satisfaction over his five month self exile aboard his sailboat sailing the Caribbean completely separated from all civilization but now drifting in Charleston harbor looking at the smoking ruins of the city he was utterly lost wondering what had happened."

MRMacrum says-

"Hanging on with one hand, he considered his alternatives."

Doc hollers-

"What do you mean you won't take plastic? It's only $5000 for bail!"
