Flash Lit #4: The Abandoned Chore

The prompt: The Abandoned Chore.
The go time: 12 a.m. Sunday, Feb 10.
The deadline: Midnight Tuesday, Feb 12.
The word count: 500 max.

Beginning, middle, end, and maybe a twist, all in 500 words or less. It’s harder than it looks, and a good exercise for the creative mind. We give you three days to think about it, sketch out a rough draft, and polish it just enough to make deadline.

Want to play along next time? Join To Live and Write in Alameda on Facebook to stay informed and/or come back here in June; we’ll be doing it all over again with fresh prompts and a growing list of participants.

Flash Lit Feb is all about quick storytelling with minimum editing. Be it poetry, prose, stream of consciousness, or cartoons, just have fun with the theme and show us what you got.
