Sorry I’m a bit late. Auto-schedule didn’t work.

Never trust a machine.

Many thanks to the mighty fine folks that contributed last week.

Given participation numbers it’s likely this will be the final week (boo).

It’s been an amazing ride. ‘Thank you’ doesn’t seem like enough for the stories and participation.

If we stop this week, then I’ll make sure that we keep a screen-shot of the leader board and post it somewhere prominent.

So, on to the challenge…

Write a Science Fiction story based on the prompt/s, below.

Pick either prompt. Pick both, if you like.

Enjoy!

Prompt 1: A robot? AI? The future Arsenal manager? The choice is yours.

 

Prompt 2: A future city? An existing city with future elements? A spectator as far away from the pitch as the London Stadium?

 

Full rules here:

Stories will be limited to 2000 characters* (about 300 words), including the title.

*(The field itself will allow for 2050 characters, but this extra 50 characters is only to be used as contingency and it won't be increased).

So, it seems many of you were reluctant to pick up the romance challenge I set last week. However, we had some brave pack leaders who rose to the event and did a sterling job (thank you).

Write a Crime story based on the prompt, below.

This should be much easier and there is a lot that can be done with this prompt.

 

Good luck!

It’s criminal not to take part 🙂

Wonderful participation and storytelling last week. You have my thanks and admiration.

Welcome back to the series of prompts driven by genres.

Write a Romance story based on the prompt, below.

So, yes, I’m challenging you because it’s a hard genre and it’s a very tricky prompt. However, I have faith that you’ll rise to the challenge and create something wonderful.

It doesn’t have to be traditional romance. It could have a dark edge, or be noir-based, or even have a sci-fi hint. Entirely up to you.

Good luck. Have fun.

Apologies, I’m not sure why the entry I scheduled for Thursday didn’t happen. I’ve made it live now.

Don’t worry, this just means that you have even more time to complete a story (or more than one). We’ll skip the prompt this coming Thursday (29th March) as a result, so you’ll have a week open to work on this one.

Massive thanks to the few brave story-tellers that turned out for the last prompt week. 

This week, something different.

We’re going to target a genre over the next few weeks so get your fingers primed on the keyboard, grab your coffee/beer/filtered water and let’s go…

Write a Fantasy story based on this lovely sculpture in Milan.

Wow – you did me proud last week.

I thought the prompt was fairly different and challenging, but you surfed your way to glory. Well done. Top work all round.

As always, write a story within the character limit, based on the prompt, below.

No special instructions this week as I suspect you’ll find the prompt challenging enough.

Where are they going? What are they walking/running away from, or to? What’s beneath the sand? Is this even as it seems?

Nice to know that the prompt last week was challenging and it even appeared to materialize into real life for some people last week (freaky).
