Bravo, writers, for another outstanding round of stories in our third flash fiction challenge! Are you ready for another?


Your inspiration this week comes from the American Memory Collection at the Library of Congress (photo c. 1948 by William P. Gottlieb, in the public domain). Let your imagination take you where it will, and post your story – 500 words or fewer – on your blog or tumblr or someplace you’d like the rest of us to visit. Drop a link in the comments here, and head off to visit other participants’ posts. As usual, we’ll include a roundup of entries with the next challenge. All are welcome, and it’s all friendly, so be bold and jump right on in!
