New Short Story up on Every Day Fiction: Take the Risk

EDF

A couple months ago Chuck Wendig posted this prompt in one of his Flash Fiction Challenges on his blog:

FLASH FICTION CHALLENGE: RISE OF THE PHOENIX

So, I figure while I’m at Phoenix (presuming this challenge posts and doesn’t give me any issues), I think it’d be nice and thematic to stay with the Phoenix motif.

Except, forget the city.

Let’s go with the mythological creature.

Or, at least, the ideas or visuals or powers surrounding the Phoenix.

So: write 1000 words of fiction that ties in some way to the legend or theme of the Phoenix.

You can interpret this as loosely as you choose.

Story due in one week, by the following Friday at noon EST.

Post at your online space.

Link back here in the comments.

RISE AND BE REBORN, SQUAWKING FIRE BIRDS.

I don’t do writing prompts and flash fiction challenges nearly as much as I should, but I had an itchy idea in my head already about a day laborer looking for a job. With this prompt, my brain said “BINGO!” Day laborer works on a Phoenix Breeding Farm.

I sent that puppy over to Every Day Fiction and they were nice enough to publish it.

Here’s a link, in case your curious and want to read it for yourself: Take the Risk, by K.B. Sluss

    I like the story. It is a slice of life with a potential romance, mythical creatures, and a curious fashion choice. 😉 Chris
