Today’s Picture Prompt

Today’s Word Prompt!

The following may be used as a sentence in your story OR provide a basis for it:-

disgusting demise

Read on for the rules!


  • You may enter as soon as this post appears.
  • Post entries in the comments – you may simultaneously display them on your personal blog etc but please show a link back to this competition post.
  • Stories must be 150 words – margin of 5 words either side – AND based on the picture and written prompts.
  • Entry titles do not count towards the word count.
  • Only one entry per entrant.
  • End each entry with word count and name/twitter handle – if you forget these REPLY TO YOUR OWN COMMENT with them before judging closes!
  • Monday 11am GMT is the usual closing time for entries – BUT the competition will be open until I put a ‘competition closed’ comment so you may be able to slip something in (because I’m extra kind like that). Got that?

If you do not comply with these rules your story will be disqualified from judging. Good spelling and grammar will also help to make a better impression on judge/s – the odd typo, however, will be overlooked so please don’t worry about that.

For tips, read through the critiques from last week’s entries.


There will be ONE OVERALL WINNER and THREE RUNNERS UP. After that there will be THREE CRITIQUES of three stories that didn’t make it.

– It would also be nice to those participating if you could promote your fellow competitors and those who win.

The Judge

This week’s judge is…


That’s right. This week it’s me.
Sorry to disappoint, but if you are interested in being a judge like Doctor Mike Reddy or Nicole Wolverton (especially if you’re releasing a new book or having a giveaway and need blog tour stops) have been then please send me an email on the address supplied on my contact page.

  1. I don’t talk about how he died, though I visit his burial site every month. I put flowers by his little tombstone, a little Angel meant to remind us of him.

    He was so impetuous, and impatient in life. Always racing around in his car, trying to get someplace before he left. Driving after a couple of drinks. Driving all night to be someplace the next morning.

    That’s what did him in. He was driving up the Eastern Shore. Just north of the Tyson chicken plant. Fell asleep at the wheel. Plowed into a waste truck. Broke his neck on impact. Managed to bury the car and himself in an ocean of waste chicken. Feathers, skin, and guts.

    They said you could still smell the chicken guts on him when you viewed his body at the funeral. They said it made you want to puke.

    It was a disgusting demise.
