Flash Fiction Challenge: This Time, I Pick The Lyric

Okay, last week, you got to pick a song lyric you really liked, and you wrote a story based on that bit of song poetry. Right? Right.

Cool.

This week, I’m giving you the lyric.

It’s from Sza’s “Drew Barrymore.”

(Lyrics here. Video here.)

The lyric in question is this line, the opening line the song:

“Why is it so hard to accept the party is over?”

The song has a lot of great lines, but that’s the one we’re going with. Take from it whatever inspiration you choose. Base a theme on it. Make it literal or figurative. Any genre will do.

Length: ~1000 words

Due by: Friday, January 26th, noon EST

(Note: I’m gone next Friday so there may not be a flash fiction challenge. Lately I’ve been getting a WordPress error when I try to schedule posts, and they don’t actually show up when they’re scheduled? I assume a variety pack of gremlins is to blame.)

Post at your online space.

Give us that sweet sweet link.

Go write.
