Flash Fiction Challenge: From Sentence To Story


Last week, I said, “Hey, write a really great sentence.”

And you did.

Lots of you did.

This week, I’m saying, okay, go check out those sentences in the comments, pick one of your favorites, and use it in a new short piece of flash fiction, ~1000 words long.

Post that story at your online space.

Link back here so we can all see it.

Make sure to identify which sentence you used!

Give credit both in comment and your posting.

Due back in one week: by next Friday, noon EST.

Go. Pick. Write.

  1. So this is my first time publishing a challenge. I’m excited about it. I chose OzFenric’s sentence: She rises through black waters, leaving the city behind, and as the light above glimmers and grows, she knows she will need to remember how to breathe.
    I changed the tense but I thought this was just a beautiful sentence. My first version was Disney but I’m more of a Grimm water. Enjoy.

    • I enjoyed this a lot, Alice. A series of random jaunts in every direction that left me right where I started, but a little wiser for the journey.

    • This is pretty freakin’ brilliant. I’m a sucker for any story that mentions Lagrange points, and the sentence folded in seamlessly. I struggle with humor in writing, and this was one of the funniest things I’ve read in a while, so… props and respect.
