Good evening, humans!
Just a quick check in post. I took a little break from work and completed this week’s flash fiction challenge. 🙂 This time, I went super-short and banged out the first thing that came to mind.
THIS WEEK’S CHALLENGE
For this challenge, we’re giving you a “finish the story” prompt.
Rather than a piece of dialog to build on,
the prompt sets the stage for the premise of your story.
As humanity sends its first manned
expedition beyond the orbit of Earth,
it discovers humans are immortal,
but “Mother Earth” is actually a living organism
that has been consuming their life force to survive.
For those unfamiliar, with a flash fiction challenge, you’re given a prompt to build a super-short story around it posted on Wattpad. For example, my first challenge ended up finishing out at 1,669 words (most novels are 40,000-80,000 words long). See? Super short. 🙂
If you enjoy writing, whether it be as a hobby or professionally, you should consider joining! It’s a quick little activity every week to keep your writer brain in shape. It’s totally FREE and a lot of fun. 🙂
(It only takes about 30 seconds.)
