500 Club (9/15)

Hello Thursday! It’s time to play the 500 Club!

Here’s the rules, before we dive into the fun:

  1. Choose one of the prompts below and write a 500-word flash.
  2. Post your newly minted story on your blog.
  3. Drop us a comment here, pasting in the first line or two (the hook, if you will) of your story with a link to back to the rest of it.

Note: If you don’t have a blog, you can simply pop your 500 words into the handy little widget over there in the right column and send it to us.

Today’s prompts are almost-autobiographical.

1. Write a story about something that, as a child, always struck you as magical.


2. Write a story about the little old man/woman you hope to become.

Have fun!
