November 2013 Flash Fiction Contest!
So, I know, I know. Most of you are going to be as busy as bees writing your NaNoWriMo novels, and those of you who are not will no doubt be busily growing moustaches (I know I will). But this is Flash Fiction - a mere 1000 words (or less!) of tight, to-the-point storytelling. That doesn't take long, right? You just need that flash of inspiration... you just need...
The Perfect Day*
On the perfect day, when conditions are just right, you can do anything. Anything at all.
So, you have until Tuesday, November 26th 2013 at midnight wherever you are to bang out 1,000 words (or less!) of speculative fiction (fantasy/scifi/horror/weird/etc.) riffing on the theme of "The Perfect Day". Please be sure to post it in the Stories sub-forum, and post a link to it in this thread.
* RIP, Lou Reed!

Highly appropriate prompt. It's not on my list, but I think I'll give this a go.
Do, do-do, do-do, do duh-do-do, do-do, do-do, do duh-do-do...

And just to derail the thread before it gets going: this (on YouTube) is from 1986, England's iconic TV series The South Bank Show on The Velvet Underground. It's fascinating, occasionally cringe-worthy, and also highlights another sad loss: that of the quality television documentary. I recommend everyone curling up with their significant other, two glasses of wine and a nice plate of cheese, then watching it from start to finish. I particularly liked it when Delen from Babylon 5 turned up.

Let's see if I can get back on the train. Noting down some ideas and rough prose now.

Here's what popped from my head: Now and Then
I'm going to be out-of-pocket during the voting period with limited access to the Net. If that disqualifies my entry, that's fine but I'd appreciate any feedback.

I decided not to let NaNoWriMo stop me from writing a quick flash
It is a tad disturbing I suppose, I really don't know where this came from, but neither am I afraid to put it before you.

*looks at the clock*
I wrote most of this this afternoon. Let's see if I can make it coherent in the next two hours!

All right, I'm throwing a last minute story your way. I'm not all that sure it matches with the theme very well, but I figure it can't hurt to have you guys mock my ability to write for a theme.
