Last week’s challenge? “The Fairy Tale Upgrade.”
A few weeks back I was playing with that random sentence generator used in another flash fiction challenge, and I got what was, for me, a truly fascinating story-inspiring sentence.
“The noticed android walks past a wondering chamber.”
I don’t know what the fuck that means, but I like it.
So, your flash fiction challenge should utilize this sentence.
In fact, it should be your opening sentence.
After that, you’ve got up to 1000 words to tell the story, whatever that story may be.
Post online at your space, then drop a link here so we can all see it.
Due by Friday July 20th at noon EST.

Needs a lot more polish (talk about feeling sloppy & amateurish…), and there’s more to it than this, but… it’s 3am, and at this point it’s well past time to sleep AND I wanted to get this done before the deadline (already bent one rule, not breaking that one)… This was a surprising turn, to be honest.
