Last week’s challenge — “The Body” — exists for your ocular and psychic pleasure.
I love the sub-genre mash-up challenges. Which, if you’re not familiar with them, is when I hand you a list of sub-genres and you take two of those sub-genres and smoosh them together like two different colored blobs of Play-Do, and from the monstrosity you create, a story of 1000 words or less is born.
Moo hoo ha ha.
Ah, but this time, there’s a little twist.
I’m going to give you a theme.
Just one theme. You cannot choose another.
This theme must apply to the story that you write.
(Not familiar with theme? Let me direct you to: 25 Things You Should Know About Theme.)
That theme is:
Love demands sacrifice.
Mmkay? Love demands sacrifice. There you go.
Story must be under 1000 words.
Due by noon EST on Friday, 11/16.
Write at your space. Post a link here.
Now, for your sub-genre mash-up, take two of the following and call me in the m… I mean, and mash them together. Or, if you want to randomly choose, roll a d10 twice or use a random number generator. Enjoy.
