Walk The Plank: New Voyages!


Walk The Plank is all about writing Flash Fiction - in other words, short snippets that make the biggest impact. And the goal: Write a flash fiction story in 250 words or fewer, excluding the title, around the monthly theme. (We upped the word count this month to give you a little more wiggle room) 

And this month's walk the plank theme:

New Voyages!

This time of year is all about new things! It's a time for firsts. New school, first kisses, new hopes & dreams. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Think you're up to the challenge? All you need to do is write a short flash fiction story in 250 words or fewer, excluding the title, around this month's theme of New Voyages.

For an extra challenge begin your story with the words:

"It was the first day of..." 

These words will be included in your word count. And for an even bigger challenge, end your story with the words: 

 "I feel ___ about the next day..." 

You get to fill in the blank on that one. (But it still counts in your total word count. Don't worry, we gave you some extra words this month.) 

Don't forget to post your Flash Fiction submission on your blog then come back and share a link to your submission in the comments below!

Note, for each challenge you hit, you'll be awarded more entries in our monthly drawing! Please see  Walk The Plank for all of the official rules. And don't forget to fill out the Rafflecopter form below when you've completed your Flash Fiction story!
