Flash Fiction Challenge: Smashing Sub-Genres

Last week’s challenge: “Five Random Sentences

Below is a list of 20 subgenres.

I want you to roll a d20 twice — or click a random number generator twice between 1 and 20 — and that will give you two subgenres. (Sure, you can choose them instead, but that means YOU HATE FUN.)

Smash those two subgenres into one story.

Write that story. Around 1000 words. Post at your online space. Link back here through the comments. Due by next Friday, May 17th, at noon EST.

  1. Men’s Adventure
  2. Splatterpunk
  3. Fairy Tale
  4. New Weird
  5. Space Opera
