Flash Fiction Challenge: SubGenre Shake-And-Bake, Baby
And we return with an old favorite.
We shall mash subgenres up and write the weird stories that result.
I will give you 20 subgenres. You will pick two from the list either using a d20 or random number generator (or use monkey knuckles or coffee grounds or whatever), then you will write a short story that mashes up those two subgenres.
Length: We’ll say 1500-2000 words.
Due by: Next Friday (2/9), noon EST.
Post at your online space.
