Our latest Flash Fiction challenge was to write about a dumpster. And include five random words. My words were: wise, office, ocean, friendly, and lop-sided. My story was short of the 1000 limit, at only 878.
This week's Flash Fiction prompt was to write about a random place - chosen by Google Street View. I got this location, a country road in Romania. I 'stood' there, looked around me, and turned on the imagination. I also threw in a few cliches. It's 904 words.
This week's challenge, it being June and all, was wedding related. We were to include the traditional 'something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue'. My version is a happy occasion, for some. A little over the 1000 word limit, at 1024.
This week's challenge was to write about a random character. I got "A seasoned trobiaritz is trying to get a date". After some browsing via Wikipedia I discovered a trobiaritz was a female troubadour, in the 12th and 13th century, in Occitan. Which is, and was both a region and a language in southern France, as well as part of Spain and Italy. I decided at that time'seasoned' would be any unmarried woman over 25, and dating, being pre-Tinder, pre any social media, might be a challenge. Mine took a while to get going on, but is okay. It's 995 words, just under the limit of 1000.
