You can join the linky list here and submit your flash fiction at any time during this week. Your flash fiction piece can be ANY form of writing as long as it's under 400 words and includes the 5 mandatory words...
Black
Machete
Magic
Skull
Tombstone
It's not too late!!!! It's never too late.
And don't forget... Prizes!!


This year I have opted for a poem which is not my forte, but I figured, why not? 


Soothed

Black machete,
Magic skull.
A tombstone has risen,
And now shall fall.
The caskets laid,
And earths been moved.
My soul is at rest,
And has been soothed.




Wham bam, thank you ma'am! Hope you guys have an awesome week and thanks for stopping by.

EYM - A Song For A Lifetime

Express Yourself is a weekly meme. It's goal is to help our fellow bloggers get to know one another better, to help motivate one another, laugh (or cry) together, in other words – stalk.



Sept. 26-30: You have to listen to ONE song for the rest of your life, what would it be?

This one is so hard cause my music changes with my moods and I can be "moody" when it comes to my music.

But I think I would either choose:

Sail - AWOLNATION
or
If I Had A Heart - Fever Ray


Hope everyone is having a great Autumn so far and is as excited as I am about October!!
