I really enjoyed the short story I posted about yesterday in the Reading Room, and it definitely inspired this weeks’ prompt:
Write a flash-fiction story (under 600 words) that takes a familiar trope (zombies, vampires, princesses in distress, twenty-something shopaholics with boy problems, space cowboys…) and have a little fun with it.
You can write long and edit down to 600 words
Don’t try to do too much in such a short story
Do consider having a twist at some point in the story (as with yesterday’s story, where the ‘victim’ was anything but)
1. You should use the prompt in your story.
2. You must write the story in one 24 hr period – the faster the better.
3. Post the story in the comments — if you’re brave enough.
4. Find something nice to say about someone else’s story and leave a comment. Everybody needs a little support!
