I entered this in the Battle of the Bards competition, under the title, “The Commodity,” so it has a bit more polish than most of my flash fiction. The stipulations were a 300-word limit and it had to contain the words “day” and “night.”
This week’s writing prompt resulted in more of a fragment than a full story. Who knows? Maybe it’ll lead to something bigger.
The prompt is “That is disgusting,” Christina shook her head.
The writers group I participate in starts out every meeting with a writing prompt exercise. Someone grabs a random book from the shelves of the library where we meet and picks out a page. The first sentence of the page becomes our writing prompt and we have five minutes to come up with something. Every now and then, I actually come up with something coherent, so I’m happy to share it.
Today’s writing prompt is the sentence, “That’s the park.”
