Flash Fiction Challenge: 200 Words At A Time, Part Two


First round is right here.

The rules are simple:

Look through the 200-word entries from last week.

Pick one.

Add another 200 words to the story.

(Easiest way forward is to copy the chosen 200 words to your own blog, then add the next 200. Don’t forget to link to your now 400-word story in the comments. Someone may want to continue the tale next week, for part three.)

You do not need to have participated in the first round to participate in this one.

Do not choose your own 200 words, because, c’mon.

Do not finish the story. This is a five-part fiction experiment: we’ll end the year with several 1000-word stories, each built out of 200-word chunks by you guys. This is a collaborative game. It is Whisper Down the Lane. It is Telephone. It should be very interesting by the end. One hopes.

You’ve got one week.

Due by Friday, December 6th, noon EST.

Join the narrative chain.

  1. To make the final day easier….anyone who hasn’t had their first 200 word entry picked up….reply and post the link here. It may be easier for other writers to get the rest of the first round picked up. I guess it’s OK to do more than one….Lets get everyone into the third round.

  2. To make things challenging I choose an entry randomly, but I’m fortunate to have found such a fun and creative excerpt, which makes excellent use of mood and structure to build tension and create suspense. The excerpt was written by rccross at http://apocryptica.wordpress.com/2013/11/25/390/

    The story takes place at a deserted dock in the dead of night. There’s a man with a gun. He meets a malevolent creature who wants something from him. What could it be? And what do they want from each other?

    The excerpt that contains the original and my addition can be found at: http://jeremiahboydstun.com/2013/12/06/another-200-words-12613/

    Hope someone adds!

  3. Here is a continuation of your great start…..I had to delete 150 words from my second part…got in to it a bit too much. Hope its OK. click on my name for the story.
