Flash Fiction Challenge: The Fix

So, every good story has an argument.

It has more than a point-of-view — it has a point. Maybe it’s one you intend, maybe it’s one that crawls up out of the wet goop that is your unconscious mind. Who knows? Either way, the story exists and the story says something. It’s not an obvious thing. It’s more the plumbing behind the walls than the walls themselves. But it’s there. Whispering its message through the vents.

That’s a story’s theme.

Today, I’m going to give you a theme.

And you’re (duh) gonna write a story using it.

That theme is:

“To fix something, you first must break it.”

That’s it.

You have 1500 words.

Due by: Friday, 9/22, noon EST.

Write it at your online space. Link back here. Etc.
