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 drunken goose
a little rowboat
(A bit of explanation about this week’s prompt. I noticed the date was 3-6-9 (well, 19, but still…)
Three six nine
The goose drank wine,
The monkey chewed tobacco on the street car line.
The line broke.
The monkey choked.
And they all went to heaven in a little rowboat.*
(*alternative line is “They all went to heaven on a billy goat” but I learned it as rowboat as a child.)
And, as always, I’d love to see what you come up with!
