The latest FF challenge was also part of a NYC Midnight Flash Fiction contest - round 2. Each group was asigned a genre, setting, and object, and give 48 hours to write a 1000 word (max) story. Our group got fantasy, an antique shop. amd a goldfish. My story was 995 words.
This week's prompt was to write about sending someone, or something off to school. I started this late, as I couldn't think of a good premise. But, I did manage to pull something together. It could do with some simplification I think, a better focus. Difficult prompts are good prompts, right? 941 words.
This week we had to write a story about a needy pet. And not a dog or cat, but a mythical creature, chosen from a list of 10. I got a Minotaur, so did a blend of Greek myth and my imagination. It was fun to write. 1000 words.
This weeks FFF prompt was based on an eerie photo of a lake in the mist. The challenge was to write a romantic story, not a scary one. No knives, blood, or zombies. I think I succeeded, at just under 900 words.
I also reformat each story, adding info on the prompt and my blog, and print it to hand out to friends. Here's the last one, for download.
