My Birthday Flash Fiction Challenge Part Deux!
Happy Birthday to me! *Blows out candles and grabs a present*
Last year I challenged my readers to write a Flash Fiction story in honor of my birthday! It was so much fun–you can read some of those great stories here–that I’ve decided to do it again! Yippee!! *Throws confetti*
Sooo, put on those creative thinking caps and get writing! I challenge you to write a story in 43 words or less, following the theme: Birthday. (Why 43 you ask? Hrmmm…that’s how old I am! Tee hee.) I’ll start with my own story, then you can post yours in the comment section below. Have fun and celebrate!
Happy writing, friends!
My Birthday Flash Fiction Story:
“Happy thirteenth birthday, Kirsten! It’s time you know the truth. Surprise!” Her mom pressed a button.
Kirsten’s eyes glowed in the mirror, skin pulled back to reveal metal. Every part of her body was a machine.
Her jaw dropped. “I’m a robot?”
