In February, the wildly creative Laird Sapir launched the first WikiRandom Writers Challenge. The object of the challenge is to write a 3-sentence story based on a prompt generated by clicking the ‘random article’ button on Wikipedia. The prompt must be used in one of the 3 sentences of your entry.
To quote Laird, “the winner will receive adoration and praise, a nifty badge to display on his/her website, and the judge’s mantle for the next round of the challenge, which they will host on their blog in July, on a day of their choosing.”
Previous WikiRandom challenges and entries can be read and savored on the blogs of Laird Sapir, Sara Walpert Foster, Ellen Gregory, and Jodi Lea Stewart. All are highly entertaining bits of flash fiction, and delightful reads. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
I was honored to be announced the May winner by Jodi Lea Stewart, and am hyped to host the June round of the challenge.
Forrest is bug-eyed with excitement at the prospect of reading and judging June’s entries.
Repeated readings of Lord of the Flies have left him hungry for new material and he’s hoping you’ll feed him a virtual buffet of creative offerings.
So without further ado, your prompt is: into thin air
We hope you’ll hop all over it like Forrest on fruit flies.
Just post your 3-sentence entry in the comments section before noon on Friday, June 29th. The winner will be announced on Saturday evening, June 30th.
Have fun and please feed Forrest! He needs to build strength for the mud wrestling event that follows.
