Flash Fiction Friday: Seven Deadly Sins

This one is pretty easy.

Pick one of the classic seven deadly sins:

1. Lust

2. Gluttony

3. Greed

4. Sloth

5. Wrath

6. Envy

7. Pride

And then write 1000 words of story based around that sin. In some way — how you interpret that is, obviously, up to you. Any genre will do.

You can choose to randomize it, too, using random.org to pick a random number between 1 and 7, and that’ll give you a random sin.

Post your story at your online space.

Link back here in the comments so we can all read it.

Due by March 11th, Friday, noon EST.
