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. Did everyone from the first round get picked up? it would be a shame to have missed anyone’s starting piece. This has been such a great exercise – I can’t wait to see where we wind up on some of these!
