Patti Abbott's La Ronde Challenge: Part 1 by Patti herself

The first installment of Patti Abbott's round-robin flash fiction challenge, titled "The Dish Ran Away with the Spoon," now awaits your reading pleasure on her blog. This is a great little story, and fine start to the challenge, which continues next Tuesday at Dana King's blog, One Bite at a Time.

It works like so: Patti's protagonist is envious of a fellow-schoolteacher, a super-successful dude named Grady Disch. Next week, Dana's task is write a tale about Grady Disch and someone he is jealous or envious of. And so it will go, for as long as writers choose to take up the task. I'll be chiming in for Part 7 on November 16, and we currently have folks lined up to go as far as December 28. Want to play?

The extremely cool image above is by an artist called midian from the website Worth1000.

That's a great piece of art. Can't wait to read your story but at this point, we have no idea who your characters will be. I was the lucky one to pick both characters.
