Flash Fiction Challenge: The Dragon

Today’s challenge is deceptively simple.

Your story must include a dragon.


wait hold on don’t leave.

There’s more.

You might be saying, “But I don’t want to write fantasy.”

Okay, so what does a dragon in science-fiction look like?

And I’d encourage you to think outside the scaled, fire-charred box. Who said the dragon has to be a literal dragon? What about a serial killer called the Dragon? An MMA fighter or wrestler? The name of a boat or spacecraft? The name of a disease? In fact, I’d encourage you to think beyond the literal here as much as you can. Get creative.

How do you include a dragon that isn’t really a dragon?

You have, mmm, let’s say 2000 words.

Due by Friday, April 8th, noon EST.
