Last week’s challenge: A Story in Three Sentences

First things first, some administrative.

I was going to pick my favorites of the three-sentence stories, but you did almost 300 of them, and I’m besieged by some emergency stuff this weekend.

So, HA HA HA HA I’m going to make you pick your favorite.

Here’s what you do.

Go to the post.

When you find your favorite — just one! — reply (don’t just comment, but click that magic reply button) and write “+1” in the replying comment. That is how you vote.

I’ll pick the five top choices (i.e. those with the most “votes”) and give out The Prizes.

You’ve got until the end of the weekend — Sunday night at 11:59EST — to get in your votes.

Okay. That said, time to do this week’s challenge. So. I’ve used a random sentence generator to pluck interesting random titles from the ether. You will choose one of these ten titles and write a short story using that title — you can choose directly, use a random number generator, or grab up a d10 and roll that motherfucker.

Then: write 1000-word short story.

Post at your online space. Link back here.

Due by August 8th, noon, EST.

The ten titles:

  1. The Tempting Havoc
  2. The Equal Amateur
  3. Breathing Around Our Abandon
  4. Such Supervised Luck
  5. What The Highway Prefers
  6. The Miraculous Archive
  7. The Saint Stalls The Scum
  8. The Enemy Rule
