Flash fiction picture prompt for Father’s Day

bowtie pic promptIn Australia, Father’s Day falls on the first Sunday of September, so we are still a long way from celebrating.

Wrong dates aside, when I saw this picture prompt over at Indies Unlimited, it reminded me of the bow ties my Dad used to love. He’d wear them with black, or sometimes white tails when he went out busking with his violin. He was something of an icon in Melbourne. 🙂

Anyway, one thought led to another, and after weeks of utilitarian thinking [mostly about work and finances], I suddenly felt a creative tickle coming on. The result is a 246 word flash fiction story about ties and Dads.

You can find the story here :

…along with other great stories by fellow Indie writers.

The Indies Unlimited Flash Fiction Competition is open to everybody, so if you have a creative itch to scratch come join us. 🙂

cheers
