January 1st, 2017 – Day One

welcome to 42 flash challenge for 2017.

I’m a little late getting this up, but…

For those of you new to the challenge – it is based on  a friend (Michaela Eaves)’s 42 sketches challenge – the idea is that it takes 6 weeks to develop a habit – and if you’re going to build a habit, why not something creative – something that lets you express yourself and create something others can enjoy.

The other side of the challenge, of course — is for people who like to read – please join us for the next 6 weeks as we try to write a flash fiction a day –

If you’re writing, please share your stories either here or with a link – you con’t have to use the prompt – if you’re writing for something else -please feel free to share it here.

If you’re reading, please leave comments – this challenge is about growing as a writer.

Grinches and trolls need not apply.

Today’s prompt: Beginnings
