Well, I was hard at work, writing my Emma series, when I noticed that I was at Fortynine ficlets! So I thought to myself, why not make my fiftieth a challenge or something? Not that anyone else had ever thought of that! Haha just kidding. So here’s my challenge:

Write me a story containing all these things: AA batteries, spanish phrase books, an express train, post-it notes, a girl named Umblefumble, and two glass porcupines.

Yes, I know, I’m crazy.

There won’t be any deadline or judging or winners, as I want to see how this goes without all that for my first one, and I’m confident that every story will be great, so picking one winner would be super hard. This is just for fun!

Ok, well, that’s all! Thanks for listening (and hopefully entering)! Bye!

    Saved to clippings so I can make this one of my next ficlets when I sit down to write.

    It’ll be hard, as the objects are random and a name is already chosen, but I’ll do my best.
