So I entered the NYC Midnight Flash Fiction contest for the second year. Flash fiction is a short story that uses 1,000 or fewer words. I made the finals last year, but failed to place. More importantly, it was a fun way to generate some solid story starts in a variety of genres.
Here is story one from this year’s contest.
The required prompts were
- Genre: Historical Fiction
Must contain a: Corkscrew
I had to pull the story for reasons I’ll explain later. I’ll put it back up if I can, but hopefully I won’t be able to do so.
