Wednesdays at Buffalo Elliot are going to be devoted to a rotating cast of features! You can expect a little pick-me-up on hump day in the form of writing prompts, book reviews (I’ll occasionally poll you for book suggestions!), interviews with up-and-coming authors and editors, and the random flash giveaway announcement!
Today, I thought I’d offer you a writing challenge! Ready for it?
Write a flash narrative no longer than 600 words, incorporating at least three out of these five elements:
- a catering company
- a stolen necklace
- feelings of resentment
- the fall of Rome
Another one for the flash folks! This time, write a flash narrative in which the main character either dies or exits the narrative in the flesh in the first 200 words.
Write a story that is ultra-flash! Only 26 sentences long. The first line must begin with the letter ‘A’ and each line must begin with next consecutive letter of the alphabet (This one I borrowed from Warren Wilson College’s website)!
Okay, guys! Get those pens scratching! I would absolutely LOVE to read your stories an/or hear your thoughts When you’re done messing around! Pretty please?
