Flash Fiction Challenge: Choose Your Random Words

All right! This week’s challenge is late — I’d written one to post on Friday but WordPress… ate it? I don’t know. It was there one day, then the next it wasn’t. And by then I was at BEA partying with Grumpy Cat, so, it was too late.

Just the same, I’ve had a few folks email me and ask me to still do one.

SO HERE WE ARE.

Your challenge this week:

Pick three words from the list of ten.

Incorporate these words into your story.

Ready?

  1. Scarecrow
  2. Mint
  3. Epidemic
  4. Tongue
  5. Republic
  6. Scorpion
  7. Divorce
  8. Moon
  9. Holiday
  10. Legend

Again: three words. Incorporate into the tale. Which doesn’t mean simply using those words — it means making them parts of the plot, characters, or motifs found within. You can choose these words randomly (d10 or random number generator) or eschew chaos and hand-pick ’em.

You’ve got (less than) one week.

Due by Friday, June 7th, noon EST.

Write ~1000 words at your online space. Link back here.

CHOOSE YOUR WORDS AND WRITE.
