Flash Fiction Challenge: It Starts With A Bang

It starts with a bang.

That’s all the inspiration you need.

I want you to write a short story with that in mind — the tale must begin with a bang. You can, erm, interpret that how you choose, but it definitely means we begin in the middle of the action.

Length: ~1000 words.

Due by: June 3rd, Friday, noon EST

Post on your online space.

Go forth and go bang. Er. You know what I mean.
