  • Flash Fiction Challenge: Sub-Genre Mash-Up, With A Twist

    Last week’s challenge — “The Body” — exists for your ocular and psychic pleasure. I love the sub-genre mash-up challenges. Which, if you’re not familiar with them, is when I hand you a list of sub-genres and you take two of those sub-genres and smoosh them together like two different colored blobs of Play-Do, and […]
