Write a blog post in 200 words or less, excluding the title. It can be in any format, whether flash fiction, non-fiction, humorous blog musings, poem, etc. The blog post should:
- include the word “imago” in the title
- include the following 4 random words: “miasma,” “lacuna,” “oscitate,” “synchronicity,”
If you want to give yourself an added challenge (optional and included in the word count), make reference to a mirror in your post.
For those who want an even greater challenge (optional), make your post 200 words EXACTLY!
Here’s my exactly 200 word entry with all the important words italicized:
The drunken old woman swallowed Marvin McFly. I don’t know why she swallowed a fly. Perhaps she’ll die—of a crash, not from swallowing a horse. Pure synchronicity, of course.
In case you’ve lived as sheltered a life as my husband and didn’t recognize the song lyrics, here’s a link to a Muppet Show video circa 1977 with Judy Collins singing:
Now if my story made you think of another famous McFly and the twist smacked you in the teeth, please vote for Imago Fly Away (I’m a go fly away, get it?) on Rachael’s Second Campaign Challenge. I’m number 52 on the linky list, right here. Click “like” under me, not above. This time, there are no judges. Your vote decides who wins, so if you like my entry, send your friends to read and vote too. Thanks.
