Title: Flash Fiction #84 - Unfortunate News
Post by: DistantSun on May 04, 2014, 10:00:24 AM
The challenge I'm setting this time is for you to create a piece of flash fiction that shows unfortunate news being conveyed.

How you - and your character(s) - decide to interpret and react to the news is up to you. Whatever the news, at least one character should consider it something they were not wanting to hear.




No more than 550 words. PM entries to me by midnight EST on Tuesday May 13th.

We all get news we really don't want to hear at times in our lives. So this should be doable.

Good challenge Sunny.  ;D
