[Write on Wednesday] Bring The Funny

I really enjoyed the short story I posted about yesterday in the Reading Room, and it definitely inspired this weeks’ prompt:


The 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)



The Rules:

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!

Optional Extras:
