Last week’s challenge: Must Contain This Sentence.
At Buzzfeed (yeah, I know):
50 Completely Unexplainable Stock Photos No One Will Ever Use.
Except, we’re gonna use ’em.
You’re going to pick one of these photos.
And you’re going to write 1000 words of flash fiction using that photo as inspiration.
Tell us which photo (by number) you’re using when you link to your story below.
Due by May 30th, Friday, noon EST.
Go forth and get weird.

[…] week’s Flash Fiction Challenge is a doozy, as you might have guessed from my title. In short, there’s a Buzzfeed article […]
I eliminated all of the pictures that everyone else had taken, then did a random pick of the rest. I got #24, which took me to places I didn’t expect. A bit long, but as much fun to write as anything I’ve done in weeks and weeks!
VERY nice! I had the same pic and here’s what I did with it: http://sixgunwizard.blogspot.com/2014/05/the-legend-that-is-nipple-clamps.html

The random number generator gave me No. 24. I now give you, The Legend That Is Nipple Clips! http://sixgunwizard.blogspot.com/2014/05/the-legend-that-is-nipple-clamps.html
Rolled an online random number generator.
Got #21: ‘Your Grandma Double-Teaming Some Popsicles’
Now, I know I write weird shit / erotica, but, seriously…WTF?! Oh well, here’s my shot at it, based from a semi-true story in my life: http://ankhprophecy.wordpress.com/2014/05/30/popsicles/
Enjoy strangeness! I will have to edit it better when I get back from rushing off to the bank. I just kinda woke up, saw the prompt, rolled the randomizer, and went for it until I hit 1000 words. Will have something slightly better, slightly edited when I get back from banks, food and giant lizards. 😀
Okay that was awesome!

Don’t know if I’m too late or not (time zone wise) but here’s my blog post including story: http://brainsandwriting.wordpress.com/2014/05/30/short-fiction-challenge/
Thanks for the inspiration! Go number 15 cake-man!
I’ve actually been doing one of these a week for the last three weeks. https://scottrocheauthor.wordpress.com/tag/stock-photo/ I’ll keep it up until I do them all!
