Flash Fiction Challenge: “Corporate Abuse”
Last week’s worldbuilding challenge –“The Gods of Blackbloom!” — is still open. Going to leave it open until 12:01AM on Friday, so when I wake up, I will choose the gods and begin a new worldbuilder challenge.
Yesterday I talked a little about the Occupy Wall Street movement and how that relates to writers (Writers Are The 99%). And there I talked about the power of fiction to act as lies that deliver truth.
And then I also tweeted something about how, in a way, the OWS movement is (ideally) trying to prevent the worst corporate cyberpunk futures — and even the dystopia of The Hunger Games. (Though one could argue there the abuses are more governmental.)
Just the same, corporate abuse makes a nice theme, then, for this week’s challenge.
So, that’s your task.
Any genre is apropos.
Write at your blog and link back here. Make sure we all know how to get there and read it.
You’ve got one week: 11/11/11, at, well, noon.
