Every week, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields (thank you, Rochelle!) hosts a flash fiction challenge, to write a complete story, based on a photoprompt, with a beginning, middle and end, in 100 words or less. Post it on your blog, and include the Photoprompt and Inlinkz on your page. Link your story URL. Then the fun starts as you read other peoples’ stories and comment on them!

The artist beckoned.
‘Ya wanna try? I’ll show ya how…’
Crimson with excitement and delight, Dale nodded her head vigorously.
‘Yeah! Oh, yeah!’
