>The annoying family Christmas letter prompt

>Imagine one of those annoying family Xmas letters you get too many of. Where everything seems incredible, unless you read between the colorful lines. Write your main character as a family members who feels cheated by the way it’s worded about her/her. Maybe the mom writes the letter in a way that subtly puts her husband down (I’m just saying). Your narrator will be that person, the one who gets put down. Or your narrator can be someone observing this chronic seasonal abuse!

Here’s some prompt words to get you going:

wide
Ann Landers
crazy
waving
renter
patch
baggy
fidgety
curb
growl
squeeze
numb
brows
big deal

About smokelong

Our Mission: SmokeLong Quarterly is dedicated to bringing the best flash fiction to the web on a quarterly basis, whether writtenwidely published authors, or those new to the craft. The term "smoke-long" comes from the Chinese, who noted that reading a piece of flash takes about the same length of time as smoking a cigarette. All the work we publish is precisely that—about a smoke long.
