Wednesday Words #92 (9/28/2016)

Welcome to Wednesday Words!  Every Wednesday I will post some sort of prompt for a flash fiction piece.  The prompt will go live just after midnight Eastern time.

The prompt might be a picture, or it might be a list of things to include in a story, or maybe a phrase or a question or something from a “news of the weird” type thing, or a… who knows?

After that, it’s up to you.  But if you do use the prompt to write a bit of flash fiction (say, 500 words or so) I’d love to see what you came up with, so comment below with a link to where it is on your blog (or on WattPad or wherever).

(And a pingback to the post here where you found the prompt would be appreciated but isn’t necessary.)

Oh, and this isn’t a contest or anything.  It’s just a (hopefully) fun thing for all concerned.

And, hey, if it inspires more than 500 or so words, run with it!

This week’s prompt:

You are an alien, the first of your race to discover/visit Earth. Write a report to send to your home world.

And, as always, I’d love to see what you come up with!

    • There’s never any rush. No deadline on these. Feel free to read old ones and see if they spark anything too.

      • Thank you! I really appreciate you taking the time to give us all of these prompts! (bows) This week, I ended up writing a couple of short letters at and (I’m not sure how to do links on someone else’s blog. How is everyone else doing it?)
