Flash Fiction Challenge: Roll For Your Title

Last week’s challenge: “Cooperative Cliffhanger, Part Two.”

This week?

Easy. All you have to do is randomize a title from the two columns. Each has ten items, so, roll a d10, or throw open a random number generator. Pick one from each column, and [Column One] [Column Two] is your title. You can throw “The” in front of it if you’re so inclined — e.g. “The Horse-Drawn Lighthouse,” or without it, “Crimson Bride.”

Then, write a story.

~1000 words.

Post at your online space. Link back here.

Due by Friday, October 11th, noon EST.

Your columns are:

Column One

  1. Forgotten
  2. Crimson
  3. Remote Control
  4. Horse-Drawn
  5. Dead Girl’s
  6. Labyrinthine
  7. Orichalcum
  8. Ink-Stained
  9. Apocalypse
  10. Infinity

Column Two

  1. Bride
  2. Mechanism
  3. Library
  4. Hive-Mind
  5. Slave
  6. Orchid
  7. Island
  8. Shame
  9. Lighthouse
  10. Sailor

    • I did a second roll and got Orichalcum Slave, and chose my first, but I think I will write the other another time. That being said, I had to look it up too!

  1. So I spun the dial and settled with “Apocalypse” and “Shame”. Combining these two choices I wrote a story whose theme is the exorcism of inner demons. Thematically touching on that theme is the reason I think some of us spend countless hours of time constructing word and sentence. I call it, “Apocalypse – Shame: A Prose of Loss Lament”. As always I am very interested in your honest feedback.
