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!

“You’re leaving him? Thank goodness.”
“Yes. Tomorrow. Thank you for so much support, Jenny.”
“Take care as you drive home, Sarah.”
