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
A Cold Opportunity Without The Kingdom
The Apocalypse Ticket

Here is my take on “The Dancer and the Shattered Shell.” I hope you enjoy it. 645 words.

I liked The Apocalypse Ticket.

I did “The Hero Will Not Be Automatic.” Here it is!
I also got “The Dancer and the Shattered Shell” from the RNG.
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
I’m not the only one that gets stuck in moderation, then!
I had a lot of fun with this one. It’s not precisely under 1,000 words, but it was such a good prompt, I’m not going to apologize.

Did post but can’t see my link so apologises for reposting. Really enjoyed the exercise, thanks.
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
Title: The Hero Will Not Be Automatic
The Dancer and the Shattered Shell
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?
I enjoyed your take on this title. Left a comment.
Why thank you. It’s nice to get feedback before it’s even posted in the comments.
I took a stab at The Incubus’ Tale. http://jana-denardo.livejournal.com/194310.html

I’m new to your blog and late to the game, but better late than not at all…I worked with “Tiger, Burning.” Thank you for the prompt!

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
Going to assume comments are closed but what the hell. Here’s mine, http://tomahawk.net.au/the-manor-above-short-story/
Very late, I know! Story was done by saturday, but no chance to post it sooner.
I took ‘ring of bullets’, and am pleased how it turned out!

I don’t know why this one came out poetry. I don’t really write poetry anymore.
