Flash Fiction Challenge: “I’ve Chosen Your Words”

Last week’s challenge — Song Shuffle! — is alive and absorbing your gaze.

Forgive the lateness of this — but yesterday, my PC took a shit-bath and now I’ve gone and pulled the Mac Mini from off the television and am using that as my current ‘puter.

Here’s the challenge:

This past week, I talked about word choice, so it seems only fitting I choose words for you.

I have, in fact, chosen 20 words.

You must choose 10 of these words and use them throughout your ~1000 word flash fiction story.

Might be tricky, but hey, that’s why this is a challenge and not, say, me tickling your privates with a feather.

The ten words:

Beast, brooch, cape, dinosaur, dove, fever, finger, flea, gate, insult, justice, mattress, moth, paradise, research, scream, seed, sparrow, tornado, university.

You’ve got a week. Friday, 15th, by noon EST.

Post your stories online (not here in the comments, please) and link back here.

Now go and gnaw on the words I have chosen.
