Flash Fiction Challenge: Random Title!

Last week’s challenge: 100-Word Stories.

Once again: the title challenge rears its gorgeously weird head.

I love this challenge and it usually get a lot of play, so let’s do it.

Way this works is: you’re gonna randomly throw together a title for your story.

Use a d20 or a random number generator to consult the table at the bottom of the document to roll for a story’s title. It’s a two-part title (meaning, two random numbers 1-20) and whatever title you get must fit the story you write for it. (Examples: “The Dead Boy’s Doghouse,” “Shotgun Promise,” “A Key For Helix.”)

You’ll have 1000 words, par usual. Post at your blog, link back here. Due in one week — June 6th, Friday — by noon EST. And so, the title tables are (note that you’re free to put the word “The” in front of your title or pluralize words as appropriate):
