Themed Flash Winners Dec 2016

Many thanks to everyone that entered the last themed flash competition of 2016; and also for your patience in waiting for the results, which after a lot of tooing and froing over which one should have the top spot and which one the runner-up, are:

Winner: Ticking by Gwenda Major

A whole new world very deftly created in so few words. We liked how the reader realised the truth long before the character did and how she would react when it dawned on her kept you reading with baited breath until the end.

Runner-Up: Lunacy by Tracy Fells
