Patrick Shawn Bagley over at Hillbillies And Hitmen wrote a comment in a recent post with an excellent idea.
It would be an interesting exercise to write flash fiction based on random mugshots.
I couldn't agree more.

So, gentle readers, below are a series of booking photos, delicately culled from the nation's databases, of the lowly, the degenerate, the downright funny lookin'. Use one or more of these for inspiration.

Email me your mugshot inspired flash fiction, 500 words or less, and I'll post it here throughout the remainder of November.

Have fun.
