Welcome to Storybook Corner, a monthly flash fiction prompt held on the 21st of each and every month. This post will give you this month’s prompt.
Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to write a story based on the prompt below.
The goal is to end up with a story with a beginning, middle, and end that falls anywhere between 300 and 500 words in length.
Make every word count, but don’t fret too much if you can’t hit the word count. Sometimes stories refuse to be constrained. Sometimes those are the only stories worth telling.
Try to read as many of the other stories as you can in the time you have available. We all work hard on our stories and like to share our work with as many readers as possible.
This month’s prompt will be the following image:
Happy writing, minions.
