Today is a Momentous Day…
It is the Birth of Tuesday Tales!
Spread the word and join the fun
Tuesday Tales is a 100 word flash fiction challenge that is based on a photo I take and post as well as one secret word to be included which is chosen by the current week’s judge! They say pictures are worth a thousand words, well now it’s time to condence down to the most important 100 of them all.
To Enter, just post a comment with your 100 word Tale and add your word count then your twitter name.
The winner will be bestowed with theAWESOME BLOG BADGE! To be displayed with pride and honor on their blog, twitter pics or what not. Where ever the winner feels their awesome sauce should get the most praise, worship and of course minions. (In recognition of this week’s judge, I have added blood to the badge representing gloom and of course… vampire goodness)
By entering, every contestant agrees to shamelessly promote and praise the winner on twitter.
For all discussions about this challenge use hash tag #TuesdayTales
This Weeks Tuesday Tales Judge is:
Steve Montano @DaezarkianAuthor of the BLOOD SKIES novels. Post-Apocalyptic Military Dark Fantasy. With Vampires. http://bloodskies.com
Our judge has decide to make the first week of #tuesdaytales difficult or as he calls it obnoxious with the word:
Definition: mournful, dismal, or gloomy
But he also said the words …”obdurate”. Or “nadir” would also do. So says the judge and it will be so.
So choose a word… but choose wisely. The best use of his chosen word “Lugubrious” will be given an honorable mention… but feel free to use one of his substitute words instead but then you may not get honorable mention by the judgemaster.
Today’s Picture is of lovely dead roses… sitting quiet alone on a black table… dried, sagging, browning, and stray leaves fallen. Use this as inspiration: You do not necessarily have to take it literal but metaphorical, the flower can be used to describe something or literal where the flower is involved in your story… It doesn’t have to be in a vase in your story… Just a dead and dying flower.
Now on with the Tales!
Ready…. GO! [guns blaze and flags wave] Contest closes at 9pm EST or 6PM PST today Aug 9th 2011
