Last week I entered a story into the Finish That Thought contest (a flash fiction contest that challenges you to write a story of 500 words or less using a set first line). I won the challenge for the week with my story “Prophet”
As winner I got to set the first line and special challenge items for this week’s contest. The prompts were as follows:
Your first sentence for FINISH THAT THOUGHT #2-19 is:
How did you get in [there]?
Your SPECIAL CHALLENGE from the judge is:
Include a strange addiction AND the names of at least two games (but not as games).
I got 7 amazing entries, which can be found in the comments below the contest post.
Coming up with the challenge was relatively easy. Deciding the winners, less so. But all the entrants rose to the challenge, and I has a great variation of stories to choose from. Last night, I read and re-read, and finally came up with my winners. Check out the results of the contest here.
