Flash Fiction Challenge (21.05.16)

Time for a shorter challenge again! With the warmer summer months looming, I know it’s hard for some people to put aside enough time to write 1,000 words for a flash fiction challenge. It’s hard enough to set aside time to write that much for your own personal projects, let alone for something entirely different.

I’m not going to give you a one line challenge this week, as that’s too short. But I’m not going to give you a word count, either. No, this week I want a paragraph. For this week’s challenge, I want you to write something in a genre you’re comfortable with (whatever that might be), and I want you to write something useful for yourself.

What I mean by this is that I want you to write a paragraph for your next book or short story. Just something that maybe doesn’t fit just yet with your current project, but maybe that you’ve had in your head for a while. This week I’m giving you an excuse to write something just because you want to and not because you need to.

Just one paragraph, but you can write a bit more if you’d like. Feel free to use this as a jumping off point to get your juices flowing.

You have until noon (PST) on Friday, May 27th

Write the paragraph and post it on your blog, website, whatever you use to share your writing online and comment with a link to it here on this post so that everyone can find it. This is also open to anyone who wants to create a poem rather than a story. So if you’re more a poet than a storyteller, feel free to join in as well.

Go write some awesomeness and get back here with your link!
