Flash Fiction Challenge: New Life

Two words:

“New life.”

Lot of power in those two words, and a lot of ways to interpret them.

I want you to take those two words, and use them as the basis for this week’s challenge — write a story using those two words as a springboard. Again, feel free to get creative — you don’t need to interpret these words in any one way, but however you choose, using whatever genre you like.

Length: ~1000 words

Due by: Friday, April 6th, noon EST

Post at your online space.

See you on the other side.
