Hi there. A very happy Friday to you!
We’ve got our third QuickFic prompt of 2016 coming up for you in a second (and it’s our very first first line of the year too!) – but before that, let’s just have a reminder about how this thing works.
At 9:50 on a Friday morning (now!), we give you a prompt (it’s at the bottom of this page). You have a look at that prompt, and then go away and write a teeny piece of fiction (250 words or less) inspired by it. Send us that teeny piece of fiction to email@example.com by 2:50 this afternoon and not a second later.
You might win this lovely selection of Faber paperbacks!
Right then. Let’s check out that prompt, shall we?
Here it is:

See you back here with the winners 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, basically.
