My Fast Fiction Challenge

I’m going to attempt a fast fiction challenge.  You may have seen other people trying this, but I’m going to try putting my own spin on it.

Here are the rules for this challenge:

In the comments, give me a 4 word title and an object to be involved in the story.

I will then write a story of 250 to 300 words with that title and that object.  Each story will be part of a larger narrative, so each story will be an episode of that plot, but self contained.

Start putting your comments in now.  On November 5th I will start writing and posting a story a day for 30 days or until the title suggestions have run out.

You can post as many titles as you can think up and stories will be written in the order they are suggested.

Let’s see how this goes.


Challenge Now Closed.  No More Titles Being Taken.

Thanks to everyone who sent one in.
