A Writing Prompt

I think it is about time for another writing prompt. Ready to stretch those writing muscles? Here goes!

Write a flash fiction story (300-800 words), starting with this opening line:

"You did WHAT?"

If you'd like a little more info on what flash fiction is, click here to see a previous post about it.

When you are finished, email it to me at I can post it here, with your permission, of course, or if you'd rather not, that's okay too. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Blessings to all, and as usual, happy writing:)


  1. Wow Karen,
    This is great. For a few weeks I've been agonizing over ideas for other essay topics for contests from which I could actually win money and have come up empty. Now, I read your prompt and immediately something comes to mind. It was fun...totally out of my comfort zone...but fun. I'm sending it on for your opinion.
    Hope you get more than mine.

  2. Carol, I look forward to reading it! Glad it inspired you:)

  3. Carol - P.S. For further inspiration, I have other writing prompts from past posts if you care to take a peek.


Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts. Have a blessed day!
