Liberally sprinkle your entries with well placed clichés or make them the twist to your tale.
Make it the twist on the punch line to your story. Or make it a witty observation: e.g. Rachel's Holiday by Marion Keyes (1997) He kept touching his hair, which, as well as being dyed to within an inch of its life, was blow dried flicked and rigid with spray.
You may choose whichever idiom you like, such as 'The cat that got the cream'; 'As cool as a cucumber'; 'As good as gold', 'Kick the bucket'. Max 400 words for Flash Fiction.
PLEASE PUT THE LOGO ON YOUR SIDEBARS AND LET OTHERS KNOW ABOUT THE FEST.

Good luck everyone! Take care
This looks intriguing. I may even have something starting in the back of my head, she says as she rolls her eyes at the prospect . .ReplyDelete
I'll post this in my sidebar.
Just signed up. :)ReplyDelete
Bless you all. Max word count 400 for flash I guess.ReplyDelete
Ok!! I've just written a most godawful poem that's not even witty as stated in the rules but yeah, I'm in! LOL!ReplyDelete
Have posted about the Blog-Fest today on my blog. Sounds like a cool fest.ReplyDelete
Old Kitty, Can'r wait to read your lovely poem ;O)ReplyDelete
Golden Eagle, Donna, Old Kitty - Yay, glad to see you all linked up.
Rachna, Bless you and thanks for the idea about extending the theme. It seems to have been a winner! x
I swore blind no more blogfests, but I'm intrigued to see if I could do something for this.ReplyDelete
Hi Madeleine. I'm in of course. Can't resist a good cliche. Hey, my life is a cliche!ReplyDelete
I'm itching to have a go, simply can't wait and absolutely biting at the bit.ReplyDelete
Thanks for doing this Blogfest - and on my birthday too :-)ReplyDelete
Just signed up to have a go
Might take my mind off the big five o!!
How exciting! Karla glad we're celebrating your big 5 O birthday. I have one in 2 yrs time...ReplyDelete
Denise and Patsy, I'm glad you are excited by the challenge.
Sarah I'm thrilled that this blogfest is wetting your interest.
Hi Madeleine, despite our best efforts at promo i think writers are so scared of cliches they're not game to have a go!ReplyDelete
I'm with Denise; but perhaps I didn't promo enough. I'll do a post in a few minutes, just to advertise it.ReplyDelete
I even thought of posting mine today instead of tomorrow just to give an example. Mine is, most definitely, "liberally" sprinkled with cliches.
Hope more people turn up tomorrow.
Great idea. I want to play this game even though Monday isn't my normal day to Blog. Fun! I wanted to write a piece called "Keep it under your hat" but my blog is mostly MG so I can't follow that line of thought ;)ReplyDelete
