So WordPress seems to have decided my comments are spam. If you joined Three Line Tales last week and you’re in the upper half of yesterday’s round-up, it might be worth checking the comment spam on your dashboard. I gave up when I realised nothing I wrote got published, mind.
Now, I don’t know how WP (and/or Akismet) decide what constitutes spam. And I won’t be able to find out this week because of course this happens while WP are away on their annual get-together.
Just as I was going to ease myself back into blogging regularly, as well.
I need your help. I stumbled across Damon Wakes’ Flash Fiction Day earlier and couldn’t resist signing up for it (Doesn’t it look fun? You can still sign up, too, if you fancy it).
I don’t know how many stories I’ll manage to write. I’d like to write at least twelve. None of them longer than 100 words (obviously), but it’s still a lot. I’ll need plenty of inspiration. From you. A single word, a starting line, photo prompts, a (fictional) response to a recent post of yours – anything you’d like to see me use during my story marathon, pop it in the comments, please.
I am not going to promise I’ll use every prompt. But I’ll try.
We moved five weeks ago and there’s still no broadband in the new place. BT Openreach is being utter rubbish… My unlimited mobile data plan isn’t much use, either, because this building is a superb mobile signal killer.
Why do I tell you this? Because all this means I am not reading any of the blogs I enjoy – I haven’t abandoned you, I’ll be back. Once I have a useable Internet connection.
FlashFlood is open for submissions again, but only until 23.59 (BST) on Wednesday 24th June. So I suppose I’ll have to carve out some writing time even though I’m still on holiday. I hope many of you will submit, too.
