Third round: boom, right here.
And we’re back.
This experiment has been kinda totally awesome so far.
This is the second to last part. Only one more round to go after this…
The rules are simple:
Look through the 600-word entries from last week (round three, linked above).
Add another 200 words to the story.
(Easiest way forward is to copy the chosen 600 words to your own blog, then add the next 200. Don’t forget to link to your unfinished 800-word story in the comments. Someone may want to continue the tale next week, for part four.)
You do not need to have participated in the earlier rounds to participate in this one.
Try to continue a story in which you have not yet participated.
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 20th, noon EST.
Join the narrative chain, won’t you?

I’m about to try my hand at wrapping this one up! Should be posting a link before the end of the night. : )
[…] down the home stretch in week four (of five) for this odd task in Chuck Wendig’s Flash Fiction […]
There seem to be multiple versions of “Joe’s Bar” circulating — so be it. This is the version started by The Urban Spaceman, seconded by Rebecca Douglas, and added to last week by Jim Franklin. I’ve stuck my fourth segment on it at:
Great addition, Another one I must see completed.
Thanks for the great lead in! It will be fun to see how all of these get wrapped up next week.
This was a great read. Can’t wait to see how it ends!
Thanks, it’s a lot of fun collaborating like this. Next week should be fun.
Part four of Jersey City, with Michael D. Woods, Andrew Linder, and Emmy Jackson.
Part Four of “The Corner”. Begun by Heather Milne Johnson, continued by Susan Penland and murgatroid. https://www.facebook.com/notes/mildred-achoch/the-corner/10151854834786527
It has been a helluva week people and I was going to try to whip a continuation out this morning…but find myself swimming (and sinking) in this legion of comments. Anybody got one they know hasn’t been done that they were hoping to see continued quickly?
How about this one? 🙂 http://pilcrowsandcedillas.wordpress.com/2013/12/02/chuck-wendigs-flash-fiction-challenge/
Hmmm, looks like The Padded Castle already got that one. We are on the fourth round, right? I have to admit, I’m feeling a bit dim here because all of these links everywhere are making my head spin…so let me know if I’m wrong about that! 😉
You’re right on both counts. 🙂 The Padded Castle got it and the links can make one’s head spin!
Oh wait! Sorry about that. It’s already been done. http://thepaddedcastle.wordpress.com/2013/12/15/challenge-part-four-200-more/
To my knowledge, no one has picked up mine from Round 3, if you’re still looking for one. http://reneeelizabeths.blogspot.com/2013/12/flash-fiction-200-words-at-time-part.html
I’M ON IT! 🙂
I gave a go at “Joe’s Bar” by Mr Urban Spaceman, Paul Baughman, and Wanderer.
Here is my addition to a story about a lecture hall with two people who aren’t quite what they seem.
Begun by David Kearney, part 2 by Mark Gardner, part 3 by Renee Elizabeths, and part 4 by me.
Thanks for picking this one up. It’s so much fun seeing where these stories go!
Ooh! Ooh! I’m gonna finish this one!
I’m not entirely sure of the provenance of this piece. The previous author didn’t have links to the previous authors.
Fae! Wolves! Knives! Pacts!
Birthed by Strange Corners, schooled by mckkenzie and bought a first car by Justice, this piece has now been gainfully employed by me:
Who’ll be the one to retire it?
I would like to give this an ending.
Nicely done 🙂

Coming in late again! My part 4, which I’ve titled From Within, started by boydstun215, coaxed by Adrienne and turned tantalising by momdude:
Great addition. Now it’s ready for the final 200!
Picked up Kirsten Bruce’s story, because it needed some love!
Oh! I’m going to finish this one 🙂
Yes, thanks! 🙂
