The Chuck Wendig Flash Fiction Challenge for this week is called The Magic Realism Bot’s Revenge. It’s an easy on: go to Twitter and look at @MagicRealismBot. Pick a tweet from their feed to use as the prompt for a story. I used this tweet:
Last year we did this same challenge and I wrote a story called The Wind That Wasn’t. Today’s story is connected to that one, sort of.

Please to enjoy, and as always, feel free to comment and let me know what you think.
