I like writing from prompts, so when Nina sent me a photo as a writing prompt for her Ladies in Horror monthly challenge, I was ready for the challenge. Having supposed to have written a poem or flash fiction up to 300 words, I of course, went on to write a 1,100 long flash fiction. Luckily, she still accepted. So click the link to Nina’s site and read my story “The Purple Hex Society.” Leave a comment and let me know what you think. I’m thinking of expanding the The Purple Hex Society (the organization) into a larger piece or series of work.
Thanks so much to Jason Parent and Dustin LaValley for pre-reading and offering great advice and to Tim Busbey for editing it. A special thank you to Nassem, my 18-year-old son for his advice which made me re-think the end and turn it into something special.
