Forty Fourth Friday Flash: The Puddle

Hi all,

A little change from normal this week. Haunted Waters Press accepted my piece The Puddle for their Spring issue. So please click through the link and have a read. Please comment on the story here. Comments on the magazine itself seem to be disabled. Feel free to read the other stories in the issue too.

Also have a special Friday flash next week with an original art piece.


  1. Congratulations on the pub, Craig, The layout over there looks very neat. Unfortunately I can't get their comments to work at all. 'COMMENTS' is greyed out and doesn't respond to clicking. Does one have to sign up for an account?

  2. Congratulations on the publication. I too couldn't leave a comment there, but I thought it a good story, very entertaining. We could all do with a puddle like that one! ^_^

  3. Congratulations Craig.

    I wonder where on earth that pink elephant got to? I mean, it's not like losing a set of door keys, is it? :)

  4. Congrats on the publication. And thanks for following my blog and the comment. I really enjoyed reading your story. Where did the pink elephant go? :)

  5. Congratulations on the publication! The puddle is such a fresh idea and I like how he uses it with a childish delight. Too bad about the drunken neighbors.

  6. Congrats and nicely done!

    I could use one of those puddles. Turn me into someone without a gut or gout. :-D

  7. A simple idea beautifully executed - it's usually the simple ideas that make the best stories. Congratulations on being published in such a well presented online magazine

  8. Great fun! Loved the wife turning up as Brad Pitt. The journal is great and so well presented. Well done Craig!

  9. @Helen Thanks and I fully agree!

    @Steve Thanks! Haha I wonder too.

    @Tim Thanks!

    @Marilyn Thank you. I suspect the magic wore off and the transgressor woke up with a major headache.

    @Aidan Me too, so much fun cut way too soon.

    @Larry Thanks! I will let you know if I come across one ;)

    @Gail Thank you. I love it when they work nicely.

    @flyingscribbler thank you! I enjoyed that bit too. Agreed, I hope to be published with them again sometime soon.
