    Announcement Themes/Prompts for Flash Fiction Contest

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Flash Fiction Contest' started by thirdwind, Oct 3, 2016.

    Post any ideas for themes/prompts for the flash fiction contest here. I'll choose from the ideas members post here.

    Also, if any of you are artists/photographers and want me to use your picture as a prompt, let me know. I think it would be a great way to promote artwork from some of our members here.

    Prompts/themes:

    The spoiled brat.
    Death.
    First coffee of the day.
    Infomercials.
    I'm a writer!
    Get over my depression?
    Stripping naked.

    You're flash fiction must contain the following words--you can change them to nouns, adjectives, etc.: forlorn, sombre, bright, happy, difficult, hard, normal, house/home, storm...

    Thanks for the suggestions, @20oz. I'll use one of them for the upcoming contest.

    If anyone else has other suggestions, please post them in this thread.
