Flash Fiction Foray-‘Skinny Love’

It’s that time of week again, and this week there are five entries to take a look at, based on the song Skinny Love covered by Birdy. I was on a prolonged hiatus so apologies to the contestants for not commenting on their pieces. This week there were four entries.

The entrants here were Ritu from But I Smile Anyway… who had a chilling piece highlighting the dangers of a consumer society. Rich from wafflemethis contributed in the form of poetry, with a medley of the lyrics which echoed the song’s melancholy meaning in contrast with Kritsa Yvonne‘s piece, which contained more than a hint of optimism and reassurance. Finally, Curtis Bausse‘s piece took less of a focus on lifestyle, but still contained several subtle comments on society-not to mention the imparting of some interesting facts about chicken…

Ritu’s post: FFF #17 – Skinny Love

Rich’s piece: FFF #17

Yvonne’s piece: Flash Fiction – Skinny Love

Curtis’ piece: Daddy Plump

Flash Fiction Foray will, all going to plan, continue regularly as before with summary posts on Monday and new challenges on Tuesdays.

  1. Sweaty palms, furrowed brow, racing heart, yes the fear is taking hold… will I be up to creating a 100 word story based on Matt’s musical prompt tomorrow after a long break? Bring it on, Matt and I’ll do my best. It’s fabulous to have you back. X

  2. I never fail to be amazed at how different we interpret the same things. This site is pretty educational for writers to observe that principle. I did NOT know that song at all. I learn something new every time I come here! Enjoyed them all.

    1. It is amazing what a range of emotions and feelings one piece will provoke within different people; I wonder what prompts those particular reactions within people? Glad you enjoyed the participants’ writing, it’s always a joy to host!
      Best, Matt
