Want to Join a Fire Sale Blogfest?

Is this what you think of  when
you hear "Fire Sale Husband"?

One of my friends dropped this phrase, and I can't get it out my head. Fire Sale Husband.

I can't write the bloody thing, either. Maybe you can.  Anyway, I want to read it.

If you'd like to join in a blogfest here, write a post using that as your prompt. 1000 WOL please, 500 WOL is probably ideal - any genre, poems are good too, but somehow it's got to tie back to the theme of Fire Sale Husband.

It can even be non-fiction, if you've got a nice, juicy, true-life story.  Better yet, a nasty, juicy, true-life story.  [rubbing hands together and chortling]

or, is this what goes through your head?

  1. Leave a comment, below, if you want to participate.
  2. Extended Deadline!!  Publish your story on your blog on or before midnight, Friday, July 29.  You don't have to post it on a specific day of the week, but you do have to post it.  It makes me cry sad tears, desperately crave brownies - or both - when I follow a link on a blogfest and the writer hasn't posted on the subject after all.  So, if you don't post, you don't get linked, babycakes.
  3. Send me your direct link to that post by Wednesday, July 27 to bevdiehl(at)gmail(dot)com.  (Why old school style, you ask, rather than some slick linky thingy like everyone else in the 21st century uses?  See #2, above, brownies and tears.)
I'll put up the links on Monday, August 1, so we can savor everyone's stories.

Prizes?  Uhhh... the warm response and appreciation of your peers.  Someday, I may do a contest with prizes, but someday isn't here yet.

And neither is your blog link.  What are you waiting for?  Get writing!

You want more inspiration?  Okay, how about this?

Are you on fire yet?
