Flash Fiction Challenge: “The Numbers Game”

The Torch — last week’s challenge — is large and in charge and demands your eyeballs.

Here’s a number’s game for you.

I’m going to give you five words.

You must choose three of these words and incorporate them into a story.

That story may not be more than 100 words long. I didn’t say 1000. Rather: one hundred.

The five words, chosen by Random Word Generator:

Enzyme.

Ivy.

Bishop.

Blister.

Lollipop.

Again, you have 100 words only.

You may post your story directly in the comments if you so choose. Alternately, feel free to deposit them in your own post and drop a link to said post in the comments. Your call, Cochise.

You have until next Friday, September 23rd, at noon EST.

I will pick three of my favorites. Those three will get my short story collection IRREGULAR CREATURES (with thirty-nine 4- and 5-star reviews at Amazon) in either Kindle or PDF format.

Choose your three words. Spin them into 100. BTFO, emmereffers.

EDIT — WINNERS:

I can’t do it.

I can’t choose just three.

Thus, I pick… er, five.

Shut up.

The winners:

SUE ANN JAFFARIAN

BRIAN LINDENMUTH

CHRIS MACKEY

YOJIMBOJAPAN

JO EBERHARDT
