500 Club (5/17)

This Thursday I find myself ready to melt into the concrete. With some luck, maybe we can also thaw a bit of that creative glacier with a few writing prompts. Who knows where the word-runoff could lead.

Here’s what to do:

  1. Write 500 words based on one of the two prompts below.
  2. Post it to your blog.
  3. Give us a small taste in the comments below along with a link to the full text.

As always, feel free to change the name and sex of the characters as you see fit. After all, it’s your story.:

1. Finish this opener: Only one left. The first two were wasted.

2. Flashback Challenge: Write 500 words where the last half is a flashback. The first half should stand on its own, but have the flashback change the way the reader sees the first half.
