Wednesday Words #107 (1/11/2017)

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:

a snowman
a park bench
an empty bottle

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

  1. I’m sorry I missed last week’s! (I got sick, before I could write anything!) This one looks good, too! Thank you as always for offering up these prompts!

  5. Here’s mine. It’s a drabble—precisely 100 words—rather than the suggested 500-ish, but it uses the 3 prompts. :-)
