Riddle me this... What's black and white and has seven rare and unusual words woven in? That's right, a Word Vault flash fic! The Word Vault is a feature in the Writer's Beat Quarterly, our forum ezine. It highlights interesting vocabulary, and challenges you to use that vocab in flash fiction.
This quarter's Word Vault Challenge can be found in full in Issue 23
, page 15 (pages 8-9 of the pdf). Then you can also see what won last time! However, if you can't download the file for any reason, a full word list for this cntest can be obtained for a minimal bribe
price. Just PM me with cookies and hot chocolate!
Once you've expanded your vocabulary with the new words, put them into action by writing a piece of flash fiction. Your story can be in any genre or on any theme, but it must contain at least one of the words appearing in The Word Vault
Maximum word limit is 250.
