QuickFic 09/09/16

A very good morning to you.

We’ve just about recovered from all the playlist fun last week, and we’re back with another QuickFic prompt. This one’s a photo, so you can fill your ears with whatever you fancy for the day.

A quick reminder of the rules, in case it’s your first time playing:

You’re about to see a prompt. We’d love you to write us a very short story, of 250 words or less, inspired by that prompt. You can send those stories, in the body of an email, to academy@faber.co.uk, and you should do so by 2:50 this very afternoon. No later please! Please also include a title and your wordcount.

There will be a winner, and that winner will win these books:


Right. Here we are then – this week’s prompt:


See you back here at 3:30, when we’ll announce the winner…

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.
