Friday Flash Fiction - week 29



12/12/12

Your life as you know it is about to end. Yes you, I’m talking to you. Haven’t you heard of 12/12/12? If you haven’t, where the hell have you been? I’ve been around the world telling everyone about it and you know what? Some people don’t believe me. But that’s their problem. Or it certainly will be. I know I’m right. She has told me. Yes, the one and only Mother Nature. And let’s face it if anyone knows, it’s her. Yes, she told me to tell you and everyone else on my list that on the 12th of December 2012 the world is going to explode. Now don’t panic. Stay with me. You’re going to be fine. There are a chosen few who will be saved and you’re one of them. If you can just fill in this form and transfer five thousand pounds to this bank account, you will definitely be saved. Hail Mother Nature!

Flash Fiction diary

Needless to say this was inspired by the theory that the world, as we know it, is going to end on 12th December 2012. Well, apparently it didn't. Phew. Oh, but now the date's been moved to 21st (21/12/12), so watch out! 


If you missed last week's third installment of Flash Fortnightly on the Artipeeps website, click here for A Burnt Orange Sari, inspired by a photo I saw on facebook. I don't know the woman, but the sari was beautiful and I had that in mind when I wrote the piece. 


Last week I set up a facebook author page and I've already had loads of 'likes'. If you haven't yet, I'd be very grateful if you could 'like' the page! Click here for Laura Besley Writer

I've also stepped, rather gingerly, into the 21st century and have set up a twitter account! If you'd like to follow me, I can be found bumbling my way through this technology @laurabesley

Flash Fiction is short enough to read whilst you're waiting for the kettle to boil. It's fairly quick to write too, but with it being so short, every word has to count. 

On 4th May 2012 I decided to embark on a project: to write a piece of Flash Fiction every day. I'm hoping this will keep the creative juices flowing and ultimately help me hone my craft. Every Friday I'll be posting 'the best of the week' onto my blog for you to read. If you have anything to say (good or 'constructive'!), I'm open to comments.  

Thanks, as always, for reading.

  1. Will set up the transfer immediately. Five thousand pounds of septic will do, right?

  4. I'm surprised there hasn't been more of this type of thing going around. Still a week to go, of course...
