Flash Fiction Challenge: Must Contain Psychic Powers
Last week’s challenge: “The Random Fantasy Character.“
Right now I’m neck-deep in the next Miriam Black book, which of course features the aforementioned Miriam: a psychic girl who can see how and when someone is going to die just by touching that person. She’s angry and vulgar and dangerously proactive and — well, she’s a lot of fun to write.
Psychic powers are a hoot, really.
Hers is pretty subtle — lots of psychological horror.
It’s not like she’s setting people on fire with her mind.
But maybe you want to write about that.
So, here’s how this works. I’m going to list 20 psychic powers at the bottom of this post. Feel free to roll a d20 to pick a random one or just grab the one you think it most awesome (though let’s be honest: random is more fun). If you need to know what it is: well, Google is your best friend. And your prom date.
Your story must include one — and only one — of the psychic powers mentioned.
You have one week, as always. Due by May 31st, noon EST.
Write ~1000 words.
Post on your online space.
