FLASH FICTION CHALLENGE: SECOND CALL

Friday, August 23, 2013


Flash Fiction Challenge: MICHIGAN MAN'S TASTES GETS HIM INTO TROUBLE.

This time the prompt comes from a headline from 1913 in a Detroit paper

MICHIGAN MAN'S TASTES GET HIM INTO TROUBLE.

I have no idea what the story was about because the print is so tiny. And I don't want to know, nor should you. Make it your own story. Feel free to change Michigan to whatever state or place you want. In fact, I suggest it. Maybe the places will factor in heavily. So the title of every story will be the same except for the place.The locales can make it zing.

The story should be 1000 words or less. If you have a blog, I will post the link. If not, I will post the story. Fall is a busy time so let's make the end date Sept 26th.

Let me know if you plan on writing a story and let me know again before the date. Please don't post it ahead of time if possible. I know some of you can write a story a lot faster than the rest of us, but it's more fun if they all get "birthed" the same day. 

Are you in?

I'm going to say IN. It's on my calendar and I've got a few ideas that would fit the prompt well. Mine'll be a Chi-town tale.

Great!

A great prompt. But I will sit back and enjoy what others write.

Shucks!

I have a draft I like; have to trim about 100 words. I'm thinking articles are in danger. Maybe modifiers, too.

Don' t sweat a hundred extra words.

My mind is humming, but who knows if the tires are just spinning.

I'm possibly in. I've got some things floating around, but nothing's settling yet.

I'm in. Have a story written I quite like and am letting it sit before a final polish.
