Welcome to #FlashMobWrites Week Forty
Come one, come all! This is an open flash fiction challenge with a musical inspiration, hosted by authors Cara Michaels (formerly of #MenageMonday, #WIPflash, and #RaceTheDate) and Ruth Long (of the wicked fun #LoveBites and #DirtyGoggles challenges).
NaNoWriMo is done for another year. To all those who attempted, succeeded, or cheered on your fellow writers, we salute you. It’s been a good while since we handed out a prize to our winner, so to celebrate 40 weeks and the close of NaNo, we’re giving a one-month subscription to One Stop For Writers (@onestop4writers).
- The challenge begins: Fridays @ Noon EDT (Eastern USA)
- And ends: Saturday @ Midnight PST (Pacific USA)
- Word count: 300-500 (no less, no more)
- We love you and wish to heap praises (and random prizes) on you, so be sure to include your name (no, it doesn’t have to be your real name) and a way for us to get in touch (Twitter handles are encouraged)
- A prompt choice is offered by each judge. Choose one (or both!) and include it in your story as given.
- The prompt may be split between sentences, but no order change or dropping words.
- Words may be added before or after, not in the middle.
For your musical enjoyment only. You do not need to reference the video or song themes in any way for your story.
Cara Michaels: “shape this world”
Ruth Long: “lay your bones”
