Flash! Friday # 24

Yeeehaw! Flash! Friday Round 24 is now closed. Thank you so much for coming out to ride with us this week. Please don’t forget to read & comment on the stories–your input is such an encouragement to all these fine writers. The judge’s results will post tomorrow (Saturday ET). See you then!

HOWDY, y’all, and welcome to #FlashFridayFic Round 24. Got somethin’ in your craw? a hitch in your giddyap? Well, shoot, we gotta prompt fer that! This round, Flash! Friday goes all western all day. {{And by “western” I mean, quite obviously, aliens ‘n’ cowboys, or Lancelot-meets-Zane Grey, or Agatha-Christie-meets-Louis-L’Amour, or the heartwarming Laura Ingalls/Janette Oke, or whatever direction your  marvelous Muse leads you. Just one rule: HAVE FUN! (Oh, all right, technically slightly more than one rule; here are the guidelines). }}

Round 24 posse leader/circuit judge is none other than the cool cowboy himself, SVW member Dan Radmacher. (Be sure to check out his judge page to see how to steer clear of the noose.)

And now… draw on three. 1… 2….
