Flash Fiction Challenge: Stolen Titles (Stephen King Edition)

Here’s the challenge this week:

I want you to take the title of one of the following Stephen King books, and write a short story based on it. The trick is, your story should be entirely different — you’re divorcing the title from the novel from whence it came, and writing Your Own Damn Thing. (Bonus points if you assume an entirely different genre — not horror at all.)

Get it? Got it? Good.

Choose a title randomly (random.org) or just pick.

1. The Stand

2. Mr. Mercedes

3. Under the Dome

4. The Shining

5. The Colorado Kid

6. The Talisman

7. The Dead Zone

8. Desperation

9. Bag of Bones

10. The Dark Half

Length: ~1000 words

Due by: Friday, April 13th (oh shit!), noon EST
