Welcome to this month’s Mid-Month Short Story Challenge. We’re only one prompt away from the 10th one in this series, which is exciting in its own right. This month’s prompt focuses on excitement and tension felt by the narrator. How will you choose to guide your narrator’s story?
Your prompt is for this month below. Your story should be posted on May 1, 2018. Be sure to link back to this post so I can see your story and share.
- Suggested number of words: Max 2500 words
- Seven words to work into your story: Brunch, window, foggy, jade, lynchpin, evidence, alternative
- Genre: Your choice
- Rating/Content Limitations: Ideally not G rated…whatever you want to do beyond that is your choice
- Topic: Your narrator slowly realizes throughout the story that they’re part of a film noir-style movie…and that they’re the bad guy’s next target.
