Flash Fiction Challenge: Choose Your Setting

You know the drill: Random number generator or d20. Roll it. Grab a setting from the list below and go forth and write yourself around 1000 words of fiction set in that location.

Due in one week, by September the 6th, noon EST.

Post at your online space.

  1. I haven’t participated in a while–I know you missed me. Why the sudden change? Well, I find myself out of a job. I’ll be joining in as long as the electricity and internet connection lasts.

    I’ve had enough random in my life these past few weeks–I wanted something I had control over for once. I was going to go with Lost in New Jersey, but Ancient Sumer is basically the same thing.

  2. I’m going to miss the deadline, but dammit, I am going to finish and submit. I have learned an invaluable lesson. If I am going to make it as a writer, I must balance my time and respect guidelines. Lesson learned. I will be late, but I will finish. Thank you for this blog!!!
