Adverbially Challenged Vol. 4 – Release March 2019

The first month of 2019 has almost ended and although I haven’t written as many works of flash fiction I’d expected, especially over the holiday period, two new pieces is better than none.

If you haven’t read these, I’ve included the links to each below.

January has been all go, whether it’s been at work or at home and all for the better. In addition, the latest volume of Adverbially Challenged is in production for release in March 2019, (TBC closer to the date) and as a contributing author “Golf Swing” will be joining 99 other adverb-riddled stories.  I’m thankful to the people who organise these challenges and put in the work to get the anthologies published.

 


Proceeds from book sales are donated to First Story, a UK charity that helps improve literacy in low-income communities.

All I receive is some exposure for submitting my flash fiction to the challenge, which will appear alongside 99 other authors whilst helping and providing awareness for First Story.

If you fancy helping to raise LOTS more for good causes, take part by submitting your stories to the challenges or buying a copy of the book, which will be available as a Kindle eBook or in a printed format.

Golf Swing

Adverb Writing Challenge: Max 100 words (excluding name and title).

 

Golf Swing

by Gavin Biddlecombe

Gripping the club tightly between incredibly tired, sweaty hands Joe stood eagerly over the tiny, pimply white ball hidden snuggly in the long grass. Crazy eyes stared longingly at it as the club was drawn menacingly up high behind his head. Pausing momentarily at its peak, the club swung down in a sweepingly wide arc.

Joe gazed searchingly into the distance where a minutely, teeny round object would blend easily into the infinitely expansive sky. He turned smugly to his companion laughing heartily behind him.

“Nope still there, mate,” declared Andy amusedly, highlighting his friend’s hilariously failed attempt.

 


Golf Swing is my second contribution to the adverb writing challenge, previously covered on this site (link above for more info). The story was submitted for Volume 4 of the challenge.

The first was Cinnamon. Having received 100 submissions for the Volume 3, the third collection of stories by the 100 different authors is currently being produced with an expected release date of March / April 2018. Further details closer to the date.
