Here is the idea. Nickelbee suggested this in another thread, and I tried my hand at it only to realize I don't have writer status... argh!!
I like the idea of keeping the stories extra short. Nickelbee's story was a terrific piece. Try to keep the story to a power of 2, ie 32, 64, 128,
256 words. I even thought of a new twist, the words at positions that are powers of two should create a phrase that is related to the theme of the
work. This adds an additional constraint making this an interesting challenge/puzzle.
two for the price of one (64 words)
all practical purposes, the
only real family Beverly had. If the price
on her head had been any lower,
she would have considered staying. "Have you heard of
the Flock?" her brother asked, "They can hide you!"
"I'll... look into that Mikey," she said as she set the twins down. Two loud cracks split the night. Mikey was now alone
Okay, so it's not a great story, but you get the idea! I look forward to lots of creative submissions!
