Flash Fiction Faction-Due April 12, 2012

Shown below is a flash fiction prompt...a fun exercise.  I have decided to participate in two such exercises every week.  This one is posted by Quill Shiv at http://quillshiv.com/
The rules are:

  • The flash fiction prompts will go live on Sunday.
  • They will be due each week on Thursday.
  • The prompts will vary week to week. Some will be photos, others a word, a phrase, a sentence (that you may incorporate or draw inspiration from,) a scenario, etc. We will shake it up!
  • The pieces should be between 101 words and 1000.
  • I will post my Flash Fiction piece under the heading Flash Fiction Faction.
  • Leave a comment and link to your Flash piece.
  • Please, everyone, do your best to read and comment on everyone’s work. Leave your link wherever you go.
  • Tweet! #FlashFictionFaction and others. Promote your work. You worked hard to create these pieces, they deserve to be read.
  • And have a great time creating in whatever genre you choose. Have a fantastic time this week and I’ll meet everyone back here on Thursday morning EST! 

A young girl is playing in her bedroom when she hears her mother call to her from the kitchen, so she runs downstairs to meet her mother.

As she’s running through the hallway, the door to the cupboard under the stairs opens, and a hand reaches out and pulls her in. It’s her mother. She whispers to her child, “Don’t go into the kitchen. I heard it too.”

Use the above paragraph as a basis for your Flash Fiction this week. Feel free to change the gender and relationship of the two characters. You can mix it up entirely. The only thing which must remain is, “I heard it too.”

Now to write a story to go with the prompt...any ideas..come on...anybody?  =)

Check back on Thursday...I will post my flash fiction to this prompt Thursday morning.  So you don't have to remember to 'check back', sign up to receive an email in your inbox when posts are uploaded.  Only takes a moment to sign up.

Thanks for reading.
