Litstack’s Flash Fiction Challenge

The fine folks over at Litstack have posted their 7th flash fiction challenge. This time, the prompt is one of my photographs, Through the Grille, taken in Huế, Việt Nam.

The rules of the challenge are simple: Using the photo as a prompt, let your imagination go crazy. Write a story in 500 words or fewer. Post it on your blog. Leave the link in the comments under the photo, and do be sure to check out the other participants’ posts. In the words of the Litstackers: “All are welcome, and it’s all friendly, so be bold and jump right on in!”

    How cool! Congrats on getting your photo up there! I didn’t see a deadline for getting this done, any idea? How often do they do these things, is it weekly?

      Hi DD, thanks! There is no set deadline, but the next prompt won’t go up for probably two weeks. If you want to enter, just post a story on your blog, then post your link in the comments under the photo on Litstack’s site. Hope you’ll write something!
