Fridge Flash: The Rise of the Witch

March 26, 2015

The Rise of the Witch: Witch Lamby

by Stella Urbanski

One day she planned a party for the evilest witch. They had a big, big ball. Afterwards she won the biggest, strongest, baddest idea and contest. And the biggest meanest thing in the world: the witch’s concert! And the mean wizard that lives with them (that’s where they get their power from); he throws it down by magic wand, the big lovely spring thaw. He couldn’t think what was happening to them. He said “Stop me, it’s so scary! Man, I told you, the bravest one.”

The witch’s cracks filled the air with mean collapse, so windy, a loud scream. Everyone is standing back and then…that…saved. Finally, she went to her friends. It was a magical ride from the wizard’s powerful magic, because the world had ended by all the witch’s powers and means.

The badder, the badder the witch’s powers made her, the badder the land had struck, the badder the Witch Lamby’s bad, the badder the loved.

SmokeLong Fitness--The Community Workshop

Next Date to Join: January 1!

On September 1, SmokeLong launched a workshop environment/community christened SmokeLong Fitness. This asynchronous community workshop is happening right now on our dedicated workshop site. If you choose to join us, you will work in a small group of around 10-12 participants to give and receive feedback. Each Monday, you will receive a new writing task (one writing task each week) designed by the senior editor team of SmokeLong. The core workshop is asynchronous, so you can take part from anywhere at anytime. We are excited about creating a supportive, consistent and structured environment for flash writers to work on their craft in a community.
