Day Three! How’s it going?
You should be cruising into your writing by now and it probably hasn’t become either a habit or a chore yet. You might have finished stories on days 1 or 2, or you might have discovered that it’s quite hard to finish a story in one day.
Today’s prompt is the perfect one to use to create a flash fiction story: a short story (less than 1000 words). Some tips: start in the middle of the story; use unusual imagery and word choices to really make it ‘flash’; try to think of an ending that runs against our expectations. Make us FEEL.
Also, today’s prompt is a great example of why you should delve into writing communities. Kylie and I met at a conference and hit it off immediately. We write different kinds of stories, but it’s lovely to have a connection with someone who treats their writing with the same level of respect that I aspire to.
I highly recommend you make some writing friends and meet a Kylie of your own!
