Walk the Plank : A Love Story


Roses are red,

Violets are blue.

Join our Walk the Plank challenge.

We hope that you do!

It’s all about sharing the love this month, and our Walk the Plank flash fiction writing challenge is no different. The challenge is to write a 200-word (or less) short story, using the beginning and ending prompts we provide. It won’t be easy, but we hope you’ll give it a try.

To begin, start your work with:

"Everything I know about love, I learned from…"

Of course, there’s more to it! If you feel really ambitious, try ending your piece with:

"That’s what happens when you follow…" 

To prove you LOVE to write, include both of those phrases and make your fiction exactly 200 words.

Share your flash fiction story either in the comments on this post or on your blog, and use the Rafflecopter form to earn giveaway entries for your efforts.  Please see our Walk The Plank page for the official rules.
