Ad Hoc Fiction winner!

I woke this morning to some fabulous news. I won this week’s flash fiction challenge over at Ad Hoc Fiction!

The prompt word was ‘Earth’ and you can read the story here:

I took the prompt word, did some brainstorming around uses and meaning of the word and then whilst I was thinking about it the first line popped out, fully formed. After that the story seemed to fall into place pretty quickly. I gave it to my husband to read, who offered some feedback and a few tweaks and before I could back out I pressed submit!

I love the process of writing flash fiction, weighing up every single word – like writing poetry. And it makes a nice break from chipping away at an 80,000 word monster!

  1. Congratulations on the win, enjoyed your piece! I’ve been submitting to Ad Hoc for ages and no wins yet (as you can see from my blog where some non-winners can be found)! I like it for the short deadline to get me writing, sometimes I develop them into longer pieces afterwards.


    1. Thanks! Good luck. I’ve been lurking on ad-hoc for a while, but that was the first time I submitted – I’m still pretty shocked! It’s nice to take a break from novel writing and do some flash-fiction and feel like I’m actually capable of finishing something 😉
