“I have decided to start the Fabulous Flash Award to spotlight some folks I feel deserve recognition for their, well… fabulous flash fiction.”

I can’t tell you how honored I am to be given this, there are so many talented writers on #fridayflash.  Thanks to Sam Adamson @futurenostalgic and Laura Eno @lauraeno for giving me the award, and for their kind words and constant encouragement of my writing.  My own four picks for the award are below, after the rules. Time to share the love! 🙂

Fabulous Flash Award:

  1. acknowledge receiving the award in a blog post
  2. link back to the person who awarded it
  3. select four other fabulous flashers to receive the award to keep spreading the joy
  4. write one or two short lines explaining why you’ve chosen each recipient
  5. optionally (I know not everyone is on Twitter) tweet, “I just gave the Fabulous Flash Award to (name). They’re worth reading.” Include a shortened URL back to your post in the tweet.

I’d like to give the Fabulous Flash Award to these four excellent writers:

Monsterbat – The youngest member of our community, and incredibly talented!  His stories and poems make me smile every time.  I’m so glad he (and his mom @ganymeder !) have joined us at #fridayflash!

Catherine Russell @ganymeder  – Not just an awesome mom who is encouraging her boy to write, she is a fantastic writer as well.  Very smooth writing, easy to read and always fun.

Jeff Posey @AnasaziStories – I have been reading his Anasazi stories since I first found #fridayflash, and they never cease to amaze me with how well they are written.  I get pulled into their world every time.

Alex Carrick @alex_carrick – A very funny writer, his lists have had me in stitches for weeks!  Always good to see some humor amidst all the plot twists and dark endings in flashfic.

Go! Read!  Leave comments for these fabulous flashers!  You’ll be glad you did 🙂
