We’re gonna get pungent on all y’all’s asses this week. But, you know, the good kind of pungent, rather than the kind of pungency that knocks you flat when you’re forced to use the restroom at the Mobil station on 6th and IH-35 North.
“Piquant” is a multi-talented word, and just a whole lot of fun to say. But don’t forget about definition #4 (archaic or not): “Sharp or stinging, especially to the feelings.”
Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to write a piece of flash fiction using any form of the word piquant. As always, keep your story to 25 words or less, write it out in the comments section below, click “Notify” to keep abreast of your competition, and feel free to use a pseudonym if you’re shy. We’ll announce the winner in this space next week (maybe), and we’ll give a shout-out to our favorites on Facebook and Twitter.
“What’s the prize,” you ask. Cripes, can’t we just play for the love of the game? Or for a DVD copy of For Love of the Game? No, both of those ideas suck?
Okay, then. Best entry in this week’s Micro Fiction Challenge wins … WriteByNight library checkout privileges from now until the end of 2013. (Normally available only to members.)
