I think we’ll ape the same challenge as last week, just to see if we can LUBE THESE STORY GEARS. Hopefully we’ll get a little more uptake in actual participants? Maybe? Jump in, the weird water is warm.
Same deal as last time: I’m going to give you several prompts.
Five, this time.
You can pick any one of them.
From there, you can and should write ~1000 words of fiction based on that prompt.
Do not post your fiction in the comments.
Deadline is one week, next Friday, the 19th.
Post it at your requisite online space, and drop us a link to that online space in the comment section below so others can read it.
Any genre is acceptable.
Let us know what prompt inspired the flash fiction you wrote.
For extra bonus points that don’t exist, USE ALL THREE.
Here we go:

I wrote this in a very weird mood. http://andreaspeed.com/2022/flash-fic-blood-and-mud/
Nicely done. I love the concept of a blood drinking flower.
Is google docs okay? I don’t have a blog or web page.
I used the second image – the two characters somehow triggered an interchange my daughter and I used to have on a regular basis: https://mosquitoinyourwhisky.wordpress.com/2022/08/16/clacker-and-cracker-flash-fiction-story-inspired-by-the-chuck-wendig-weekly-challenge/
Ooh that was creepy with a great twist. Though I can’t help but wonder how it reminded you of an interaction with your daughter? Lol
One went with an idea I’m working on, so I went with that.
Nice start to your larger piece. I have to admit I was a little disappointed you didn’t provide an ending. You had my interest. I hope you keep going.
Ending up writing something that had little to do with the image I chose. The two… elves, I think? Looked to me like they were having a catch-up. And it took me here: http://grahamwrites.com
I accepted the challenge and wrote the following:
I used four of the prompts, all with the exception of the the first (figure in green setting).
I’m relativity new to prose fiction, therefore any feedback is great appreciated. I hope you enjoy the read.
Hi there! Long time watcher from the shadows, first time poster. I’m hoping to participate in more of these Flash Fiction challenges.
I chose three pictures: The first one with the mysterious man, the picture of the two laughing individuals, and the red flowers.
First of all, thank you, thank you, thank you our benevolent word-meister! I used the final prompt since it started talking to me and telling me a story after about five minutes. Not sure if that’s normal, but who am I to question the decidedly spooky? I hope some enjoy it.
I went with pictures 1, 3,4. Those are the ones that jumped out at me the most and gave the immediate concept for this story. I hope you all enjoy this piece.
I hope I made it on time since it’s still a few minutes from midnight here in the West Coast.
I picked the 4th image with the robot looking thing walking over the city. Thanks for the challenge!
