If I Could Talk to the Animals*

We’ve been promoting Patti Abbott’s latest flash-fiction challenge for a couple of weeks now. The results are finally being posted today.

The task for writers was to create a new tale--not necessarily rooted in either crime or mystery--set in a zoo. “The zoo can be incidental to the plot,” she explained, “but that’s the setting.” Stories were also to be limited to 1,200 words in length.

Abbott’s own entertaining yarn, “At Large in the Monkey House,” appears in her blog, along with a list of this challenge’s other participants. Go check them out, when you have a chance.

* Rex Harrison had the right idea.
