Secret Sunday – Writer’s challenge

Since creating my blog, I’ve had the opportunity to take part in some really fabulous writing challenges. I have worked within the confines of prompts, limited word counts, word lists and even tried new genres. These challenges have helped sharpen both my writing and editing skills.

I decided that I would in turn issue my own challenge. If you are up to it and are not too busy with your own work in progress or the other wonderful challenges out there, I welcome you to participate.

So here it is:

Write a flash fiction piece having no more than 500 words. You can write in any genre you want but the story must include a secret of some sort. Publish your story on your own blog and then paste a link here in the comments section. I hope you have fun with it and I can’t wait to read what you all come up with.

The challenge ends Saturday, May 7th.

  2. Hey there. I wandered onto this challenge and thought it could be fun. So I tried. (I think this may be a bit too subtle. Or not subtle enough.)
