Madison Woods has this fun challenge on her blog on Fridays (I just discovered it yesterday!) where she posts an interesting image and encourages folks to write a piece of flash fiction inspired by it. I’ve never tried this before, so I thought I’d give it a go.
The story can be only 100 words long (aaaah!), and after some modification, mine came in at exactly 100.
Anyways, I’d like to share it here. 🙂 And also the inspiration image posted over at Madison’s blog:
“Ha! You’ll never make it!”
“Whoa! Don’t look down!”
Kitty scoffed; this was the last of the foretold trials, a chasm full of mocking faces?
Crossing by lassoing the nearby tree would have been easy, had the faces been mouthless. They blew a gale so strong across the chasm that Kitty could not make it to the other side. Exhausted, she challenged with breathless resolve, “I bet you all can’t keep your mouths shut for fifteen seconds!”
Offended, the faces immediately accepted Kitty’s challenge.
And so it was with the allotted time that Kitty evaded the mocking chasm by lasso.
