Here’s a challenge for you. Write a 100 word flash fiction, any genre. You must have a main character, beginning, climax and ending. If you will send them to me at shirley_mclain.net, I will post them on my blog. When you write a story using only 100 words it is really bare bones, no fluff. Let’s see what you can come up with.

I look forward to reading your stories and sharing them.
