Flash Fiction Challenge: Eight Random Words


Last week’s challenge: One Random Sentence (winner will be picked later this afternoon).

On a bit of a random kick, so let’s go with that, again.

This time, I give you eight random words:

Saw

Milkshake

Bath

Flowerpot

Wheelchair

Bully

Zoo

Heretic

And you must choose four of these and incorporate them into a piece of flash fiction no more than 1000 words long, posted at your blog or online space by Friday, June 8th, at noon.

Post links here so we can all read.

Get to writing.
