Flash Fiction Challenge: Shoe Tree

Welcome to the second weekly flash fiction challenge of December!  You have one week to submit yours if you want to be included in the runnings for "my favorite" of the week.  I'm going to offer a copy of either my short story, Nothing Lasts Forever, or a copy of my giant book of poetry, Bony Fingered Limbs, to the winner.  Just let me know which you'd prefer, should you be chosen!  :)  It will come to you via email as a PDF file, DRM-free, so you can send it to whatever e-book-reader-device you may prefer. 

Get me your submissions by Midnight next Friday morning, 12-16-11, Mountain Standard Time.  Link us your story in the comment area!  If you don't have a blog to post it on, you can use the notes on your facebook page.  Just be sure it is marked "public" so we can all see it!  And if you don't have a blog, you could start one up pretty fast and easy, here at blogger!  

This week's challenge will be using the picture above.  You can click on it to make it bigger if you want to see it better.

I call it Shoe Tree.  Tell me your story inspired by this picture in 1500 words or less.  You have one week!  Go!  Write!  The universe demands it!


  1. I hope it makes sense because i am sleepy as heck and i might just possibly be Sleep Writing.

    Title: "Shoes don't grow on trees, you now?!"


  2. Going to go with Sandra Leigh's this time! They were all very good, just like last week, though! Keep up the good work guys!

    Sandra, just let me know which you would prefer, the short story or the poetry collection, and where you'd like me to send it! :)

  3. Rebecca, I've sent my e-mail address to your e-mail address. Thank you again. Now to read everyone else's story. I was so busy writing, I haven't had time to read!


  4. You should have a reply now, Sandra! :)

  5. Nicola wrote a story too, though it was a hair past the time frame to be considered for the contest, I figured it should be linked here too!
