Flash Fiction Challenge: Random Phrase

This one’s pretty easy: click this link for a random phrase, and then take that random phrase and use it inside a piece of flash fiction that you write.

Simplicity personified.

You have the standard 1000 words, which you should post at your online site and — upon completion — link back here so we can all read it. This is due by Friday the 24th, noon EST.

That’s it.

Getcha random phrase.

Writecha story.

  1. Okay fellow pen monkeys, my phrase was “cleanlier impurity” and this is what I came up with:


    I don’t write very much flash fiction, and when I first wrote this piece, it was over 1,200 words. I did a lot of work to cut it below 1,000, and it was a worthwhile exercise to see which details were necessary, which weren’t, and which were just weak. It has a few kinks in it, but I’m pretty pleased with how it came out.
