Last week’s challenge: “They Fight Crime”
I’m going to a random word generator.
There. It has chosen ten random words.
Those ten words are:
You will choose five of those words.
You will include those five aspects — not just as words but as actual components of the story — in your 1000-word flash fiction this week. As always: post at your blog or online space, then link back here so we can all read it. You’ve got a week. Due by Friday the 29th, noon EST.
Pick words. Write story. Go.

For this I chose cube, chisel, envelope, satellite and undertaker. (Despite trying really hard not to chose undertaker!) If there’s a main aspect, it’s cube; if there’s a guest aspect, it appears to be dreams.
At 523 words, I present Little Boxes: http://blog.icarusmortis.co.uk/2013/03/29/little-boxes/

I will admit this is not my best work. Words chosen: Ethereal,Dolphin,Undertaker,Storm,Envelope.
I missed a couple weeks, but I’m back on the wagon now! Er, off the wagon?
I chose five words and got nowhere, gave the random number generator some work and ended up with four of the five I did not choose, made one substitution and used Envelope, Ethereal, Dolphin, Replay and Library to make “Second Chanced.”
Library, storm, envelope, chisel and undertaker.
Had a little trouble with the chisel–not really a significant element but it is in there. And the library is really more about the librarian.

As always, something fucked up. The satellite. Now that was a tough one to invent, but really liked the things I did with these guys.

Again, a couple of hours late. In my defense, it’s not yet noon here. 😀
