If you've come from Katherine Givens blog, you'll already know we're doing something different this week on Romance Writers Weekly! We’re each writing a piece of flash fiction using three words – candle, chocolate and scarf. I went with the first images that came to mind, and wrote something that is nothing like the “voice” I normally use in my writing. There's a real sense of poetry about it to me.
He tightened the scarf about the wrists she held up to him, the silky material not as soft, not as luscious, as the pale, fragile skin soon to be marked by his bonds. Her melted chocolate eyes watched him, wary arousal flickering in their depths. The candle flame guttered in the breeze from the open window, scented wax trickling slowly, painfully down its slender column.
What do you think?

Steamy! I wondered with these three words how steamy these stories would be. So far, pretty hot.

Hmmm, Such a short passage to have evoked so much emotion. Well done!

I agree with your self-eval, Brenda. I like both your voice, which is more straight-forward and this passage which is more lush. Nice work!

So few words to handle such impact. Loved your flash fiction :)
