Flash Fiction: day three

Daily Prompt #19: A Given Scenario

Let’s use this plot generator to give us a scenario to write about. This is a great site when you’re struggling for ideas, but feel the need to write!

For ten minutes, start writing a short story using this scenario.

Before we move on, let’s share some of our writing inspired by yesterday’s two-sentence stories.

Today, we’re going to try our hand at 50-word stories. Let’s look at some samples to get a sense of how long that really is.

The key to writing a 50-word story is this: write about a brief moment in time, and don’t worry about the word count. Once you’re done, go back and edit until you get to 50-words. This activity teaches you to discipline yourself as a writer, including only the words which matter most.

Find a partner and write a 50-word story together. We’ll be sharing a few with the class. 

Need help with an idea? Use the plot generator, or any of your flash fiction from this week!
