If you want to do some whimsical writing and find yourself pondering the need for a prompt, then go visit Mr. Chuck Wendig and his latest “Flash Fiction Challenge: Smashing Sub-Genres”.
The clever concept is to utilize his random number generator to roll the dice, selecting by random two numbers that correspond to twenty sub-genres. After finding out your flash fiction fate, it is up to you to meld, weld, melange, and combine your two sub-genres into a flash fiction piece of 1,000 words.
Yours truly was the lucky winner of Southern Gothic and Steampunk. Feel free to google/wikipedia those terms. This fun flight of fancy comes to a close in a week’s time, so get to work. And read the rest of Chuck’s entertaining and enlightening blog.
