Remember remember, the 2nd November, when Jade-Louisa gave you all a new prompt…Yes, fresh off the heels of Halloween, we’ve got another themed edition of our #QUICKFIC flash fiction competition! This one is Bonfire Night themed. Or as I like to call it, Celebrating the Time a Crime was Narrowly Averted with Fire and Mayhem Night themed! The first is catchier, I’ll grant you that.
But before we get to it, a rules refresher:
- Use the prompt below to write a story of 250 words or less.
- Pop the story into the body of an email, including the title and the word count, and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure it’s in the body of the email, not as a separate attached document!
- Do all that by
2:50 pm3 pm today
And if you do, you’re in with a shot of winning these criminally good books:
And with that, here is your prompt:
Bye until 3:30 pm!
