Flash fiction challenge: 1000 words, "Don't cry over spilled milk."

The phrase was uttered at work today, and it stuck with me.  The connotations are many, this could be literal or figurative, after all.  So!  Let's let the phrase sink in and inspire us!  1000 words or less, inspired by the phrase, "Don't cry over spilled milk."  Story, not essay.  We'll start today, September 8th, and you'll have one week to get them to me.  So as long as they're in by midnight (MST) 9-15, they count.

Let's make this first one just a fun self-challenge, and see how that goes!

Let's see...  how to submit.  I think having huge stories in the comments area would take over a bit, so please post on your own blog and link the posting in the comments.  If you don't have a blog or your own site, go ahead and post here!

Happy writing, and calm down, now.  It will be alright.


  1. OK, here's mine, in case you missed it:

    994 words.

    Where's yours? :)

    Here ya go Ms Becca! I finally stopped teasing you about it. Still a rough draft though (I think all things are probably pretty rough drafts though)

  3. Tonight at midnight is your last chance to post yours, if you joined us! :)

  4. Since Kat and I were the only ones doing this, our winner would be Kat!! <3 Thanks for joining me! Hope you can think of something for this week's awesome spiderweb one! :)

    In random other thoughts, why don't the links in the comments work? Stupid blogspot.


You may use html tags to post links, if you like! HTML code help, if you need it.
