Outliers and Misfits: My @etherbooks #FlashFortnight Flash-Fictions

Slide10A couple of weeks ago, Ether Books announced its latest contest: The #FlashFortnight Challenge, and being a sucker for a challenge, I couldn’t resist, so last week, I wrote one flash-fiction a day for seven days (each one based on the daily theme) and sent them off.
