In my last post, I revealed a Flash Fiction Challenge my coworker and I underwent. We created a 350-word (or less) story per day based off of Dictionary.com’s Word of the Day. The word had to either be mentioned in the story somewhere or the story could be centered around the word.
I’ve shared three of my stories. Here are three of his.
Do you receive Dictionary.com’s Word of the Day? I do, and I’ve thought for awhile now that it would be really awesome to do a flash fiction story with the Word of the Day.
I recently convinced my fellow writer friend/coworker Joe to embark on a 10 Days of Flash Fiction Challenge with me, so I thought I would share a few of our favorites. I’m including three of my stories here, and three of his in the next blog post.

Like last week’s Difference Between, this one is taking a look at a couple of well known beverages. We’re investigating the difference between chocolate milk and hot cocoa. Shout out to my coworker and friend Joe for suggesting this one.
There weren’t too many surprises when I started researching the difference between orange juice and Sunny Delight, or as it’s sometimes marketed, SunnyD. But what I didn’t expect was what a horrific reputation Sunny Delight has.
Looking for cherry tomatoes at the grocery store and finding grape instead? Wondering what the difference between the two is? Today we’re taking a look at these delectable little members of the tomato family as we find out the difference between cherry tomatoes and grape tomatoes.
Recently, I commented on a Facebook post about a study citing that spanked children are more likely to be violent with future partners. In my thoughts, I mentioned the book What to Expect the First Year, and someone respondedbasically dissing me for reading parenting books.
