Flash Fiction Contest

Well, I am 235 words into my entry for the August 2017 flash fiction contest.  I have chosen a humorous take on the near future and the rapid growth of technology.  I don’t want to give away too much yet because I am still setting up the punch line.  Also, the actual thematic part of the plot may be only a third of the story, which means I will have to try extending the story with relevant setup material and dialogue.  I have a bad habit of focusing on the meat of the story and struggling to give the world and characters a life of their own.  Many of the short stories in my “Mystics and Misfits” collection are expansions of such tales.
