Welcome to the February Flash Fiction Carnival. I want to thank the writers who ran with the theme and sent in stories after just a week of writing time. I had no idea if this theme would work or not, but I'm very gratified that you all gave it a go.
Now then, to business. Two stories are being hosted here at the FFC 2008 blog and the others are posted in the respective author's blog. Please read all of the flashes and make comments where they are open. As we have fewer than ten writers for this theme, commenting should not be an overwhelming task. I know I don't need to remind you, but it's my job so to do, please be constructive with your comments NOT destructive. Comments in this blog are now being moderated and will likely remain so indefinitely. I apologize for this inconvenience, but I promise that I will post comments with as much alacrity as I can muster.
In order of receipt, I present to you the flashers bold enough to address COWARDICE:
Cowardice by Unfocused Me in The Unfocused Life
A Tough Decision by Kathleen Oxley in Kathleen Oxley Erotica
Five Simple Words by Gwen Mitchell in Gwen Mitchell Fiction
15-and-4 by Arachne Jericho in Spontaneous Derivation
