This week, we got the Slasher Movie Edition of the Chuck Wendig Flash Fiction Challenge, in which we were given 1,500 words to hearken to slasher movie culture or narrative in some way. I immediately thought of the first time I watched Friday The 13th Part 2. That thought led me to the following story. I used 1,087 words. Please to enjoy “The Bloody Scrum”.
The Chuck Wendig Flash Fiction Challenge for this week is entitled Inspired By InspiroBot! We were challenged to go to InspiroBot, which is a website that generates random inspirational images. Once we got one we liked, take it and use it as inspiration for 1,000 words or less. Mine came in at 963 words. My InspiroBot image is below. Please to enjoy my story.
This week’s Chuck Wendig Flash Fiction challenge is called, “Here are your five word titles.” Last week, Chuck asked us to submit five word story titles, then picked ten for us to choose from. I chose “Ghosts of the Sea Queen.” There seemed only one real place to take it, and if it seems a little cliched, it’s okay. It’s supposed to. We had a 1,500 word limit, and I used 1,483 of them. Please to enjoy, and please leave comments if you are so led.
This week’s Chuck Wendig Flash Fiction Challenge is Ten Random Titles. Pretty self-explanatory. He gives ten titles, we pick one and go, up to 1,000 words. I chose “The Nobody” and wrote 241 words. My first instinct was to make it a poem, then decided that wasn’t pretentious enough, so I upped the ante and made it a flash piece that is supposed to feel like a poem even though it isn’t. How did I do? Did I succeed in my o’er-weening literary whatever? Please to read and enjoy and let me know!
