Flash Fiction Challenge: Ten More Titles

We’re going to ape the challenge from last week because honestly, that website came up with so many rad titles I want to keep forcing you to use them. And I’m also lazy.

Never discount the fact I’m incredibly lazy.


Here’s how this’ll work.

At the bottom of this post will be ten titles randomly selected at this website — you must choose one of them and write a flash fiction story (~1000 words) using that title. Any genre. Post it at your online space. Link back to it in the comments. Due by next Friday, January 29th, noon EST.

The ten titles are:

The Incubus’ Tale

The Manor Above

The Dancer And The Shattered Shell

The Hero Will Not Be Automatic

Ring of Bullets

The Music Box of Manhattan

These Damned Insects

Tiger, Burning

A Cold Opportunity Without The Kingdom

The Apocalypse Ticket

  1. And just in case my comment with the link is stuck in moderation for a long time, I used an RNG and got “The Dancer and the Shattered Shell.” Find it at ninjalibrarian (dot) com

  2. Mine appears to be stuck in moderation as well. If you want to see my take on Dancer please go to sambrady.wordpress.com and check it out!

    • Yep, mine’s been stuck for over six hours now, but then, it’s Chuck’s sleeping time. I did try logging out and signing in again, but to no avail. 🙂 To see my take on These Damned Insects go to jemimapett.com

  3. Looks like Mr. Wendig’s internet is down. That is officially No Way To Live.

    I will henceforth refer to comments awaiting moderation as being “stuck in the Chuck-hole.” I intend to start using the expression in my office, too. HR has a sense of humor, right?

  4. I seriously edited my story. My first time submitting to a challenge like this was not thought through carefully when I was excited and posted the first draft at nearly 4am. Oh well, now I know. This version should be better. http://wp.me/pz8TL-sr
