And that's it, fellow flash-fictioneers, the end of the the deluge, the end of this issue of FlashFlood and the end of the first ever National Flash-Fiction Day.
Things will continue, with more competitions on their way and other events still to come, so don't worry, this isn't the end of everything, just the day.
Thanks for reading the stories and for all your comments. We all hope you enjoyed them.
Keep writing your flashes, we hope to have more issues of FlashFlood through the year, and roll on NFFD2013!
All the best,Calum, Susi, Shirley, Nettie, Caroline, Susan and Cassandra.
