This week’s prompt at the Flash Factory is “twilight.” Sometimes a story comes right away for the prompt, but that’s unusual. More often, the prompt has to roll around for a while and see what other ideas are attracted to it. Memories and other things are “filtered” through the lens of the prompt. In a way, it’s sort of like the process of clustering, only not on paper.
So far, the ideas presenting themselves are:
1. A nudist wedding my husband arrived at, not knowing it would be a nudist wedding.
2. Insect repellent
3. Bagpipe music (it actually was a hand fasting).
4. A framed T-shirt, which reminded me of the “in case of emergency, break glass” type of alarms.
That’s the fun thing about flash: a few ideas like this, and it almost seems to write itself. We’ll see…
