Challenge: Write a 55-word story that’s a tragedy or a comedy. Optionally, combine the two and make the story a tragicomedy.
The blood spatters all over the murder scene formed a circus — clown faces, animals, the whole shebang. There was someone crying in the other room, but I couldn’t help admiring the work. It was like the splatters might start moving if someone started playing circus music.
I put the music on and move they did.

N. WS. Jokela, more commonly known as WindySilver, is a Finnish IT student and a hobbyist artist fighting a war against procrastination on the losing side. When her free time is not taken up by things like reading, procrastination, video games, watching series or more procrastination, she mainly writes sci-fi fanfiction and original flash fiction of various genres. While she dabbles in a lot of things ranging from digital art to jewelry to plants to whatever catches her interest, writing is her persistent forte.
You should not give her yet another crazy flash fiction challenge to take part in because she simply cannot say "no" to it.
