There's nothing quite like relaxing.

Alright, it’s been March for a while now, and I know a lot of you college students are on spring break.  I hope you have a great time and enjoy it! Monday means that it’s time for another story challenge, and we’re still doing themes.  Just in case, here are the rules: You must write a story of at least a hundred words, and not more than five hundred (if you want to post it as a comment – if it’s just for yourself, then it can be as long as you want).  The story must be about the theme given in this post.  So,  if the theme I give you is Life, don’t write a story about the lord of the underworld.  If the theme is War, don’t write a story about a farmer planting his crops.  Themes are very broad, so it really shouldn’t be hard to stay within a given theme, but I teach, so I know that some people have trouble with this.

Your theme this week: Relaxation
Write me a story about relaxing.  This could be a story about spring break, or a story about coming home after a long day of work.  Just as long as it is about relaxation.

  1. My take here.

    I only came across flash fiction a few weeks ago, and last week’s effort was my first attempt. I am finding it interesting to write, particularly the 100-word genre I’m now exploring. Constructive criticism is welcome (on this or any of the other stories).

    Thanks for the challenge.

  2. The exact word count of any kind of fiction is a moving target, but generally speaking Flash Fiction is counted at 1000 words or less (1001+ being a short story). Fiction of 100 words or less is becoming more common though, and will probably soon have a name all its own. And you are correct, it is very difficult to write a story that short. However, I think that it is a challenge worth accepting.
