Welcome to the very first Flash Fiction Friday!

Every week for the foreseeable future Jeff and I will be posting flash fiction writing challenges. For our inaugural week we used The Storymatic. As per the rules of the “classic” version we pulled two gold and two orange cards. The cards we chose at random were:

  • motivational speaker
  • world record holder
  • historical re-creation goes awry
  • box of hair


Oh boy.

There are no hard and fast rules for this particular challenge. No limit on length, just make sure each of the four elements appear in the story somehow. You can play along too! If you’d like to share, just add a link to your creative missive (posted at your online home) in the comments section of this post. All stories are due by 9/5/14. Check back next Friday to see what Jeff and I come up with.
