QuickFic 12/06/15

Why, good morning to you!

It’s time to play QuickFic. It is! We are so very happy about that.

Before we give you this week’s prompt, let’s have a little refresher: those pesky rules. They’re ever so simple, though:

At 9.50am each Friday, we provide a prompt. An image or some words. Sometimes both. You have a look at that prompt, then promptly pull a story, of 250 words or less, from your magical inspiration hat. You send that story – after bestowing it with an appropriate title – to us at academy@faber.co.uk by 2.50pm this very day, and not a second later.

At 3.30pm, we announce the winner and the winner wins books. Hooray!

So let’s get right down to it and look at this prompt, shall we?

Here it is:


Ooh. Vintage.

And those books we mentioned? Well, this week they are these:


L-R (sort of): The Killing of Bobbi Lomax, Danny Boyle: Creating Wonder, The Temporary Gentleman, Forty Acres, Stage Blood

Ready… Set… Create!

We’ll see you back here at 3.30.

By entering our QuickFic writing competitions, you’re granting us non-exclusive worldwide permission to reprint your story on our website should you win. The winner will also get a chance to win a place on one of our Start to Write one day courses, because at the end of the year we’ll be choosing our favourite of all the winners – the champion of champions, let’s say.
