Today's story is set in a gym. Why is your protagonist having blurred vision? Is she pushing it too hard? Why? Trying to tone up for a fast-coming date/deadline/competition? Maybe he doesn't know how to take it any slower than push-til-you-pass out or he's crying over a break-up. Gas leak in the gym or something more nefarious, like poisoning? Write a little Flashy Fiction that explains the blurry vision at the gym.
We all know the story of Snow White. Wicked witch... magic mirror... poison apple... true love's first kiss... the seven little guys... Becocme one of the Seven Dwarves and re-tell the story from your new perspective. (Of course, the seven were Sleepy, Sneezy, Doc, Bashful, Grumpy, Happy and Dopey)
A stream flows peacefully among beautiful flowering trees. Write a little Flashy Fiction set in this idyllic locale. How'd you come to be here? What's your purpose...romance, tranquility, or something a bit more nefarious?
Or, more precisely, the name, Morning Glory? Do you recognize the flower in the picture? It's a Passion Flower. Do you know the story behind the name? For today's prompt, write a little Flashy Fiction that explains the naming of a flower. The flower could be one newly found by your protagonist, or a fictional account of how a real flower got its name.
This is a photo of one of the graceful statues which ring the old hay barn site at Duke Farms. The area is now a small oasis which is great for a quiet moment of contemplation, as well as something pretty to look at when bike riding or walking the grounds.
While some statues are the stuff of a scary Dr. Who narrative, others have an interesting backstory. So...is her story about finding peace and being still...or was she bewitched (and turned into a statue, where she still remains to this day?) How will her tale end...or will it ever end?
Tell us about it, because everyone - yes, everyone - has a story to tell.
The band is playing your song. What do we hear? Is the soundtrack filled with classic rock or modern hip-hop, classical or something like Thunderscape by Erik Morales where the music paints a thunderous rainstorm? Write a little Flashy Fiction that lets us hear the music.
