Flash Fiction Challenge: Rise of the Phoenix

So, I figure while I’m at Phoenix (presuming this challenge posts and doesn’t give me any issues), I think it’d be nice and thematic to stay with the Phoenix motif.

Except, forget the city.

Let’s go with the mythological creature.

Or, at least, the ideas or visuals or powers surrounding the Phoenix.

So: write 1000 words of fiction that ties in some way to the legend or theme of the Phoenix.

You can interpret this as loosely as you choose.

Story due in one week, by the following Friday at noon EST.

Post at your online space.

  1. First-time commenter, long-time reader. Never participated in a flash fiction challenge before, but I figure, anything to get me writing again. I present to you the simply-titled “Phoenix,” written about…ten minutes ago, as of this writing. It’s about 82 words over the mark, but I wasn’t going to stop till I had an ending that satisfied me.

    It’s kind of auto-biographical, in that some of the smaller details in the beginning of the story are based on my life five years ago. Would love to hear what you think of it.
