55 hours. 500 words. 500 dollars.
On the first weekend of every month, you are invited to put your storytelling skills to the test in the ultimate writer-takes-all short story competition.
Armed with a simple brief, you race the clock to come up with your best 500 words-or-fewer story and be in to win a tasty $500!
April’s Furious Fiction requires you to use the following three pieces of dialogue:
- “It is a beautiful and terrible thing, and should therefore be treated with great caution.”
- “He’s never done anything like this before.”
- “What’s it going to be then, eh?”
The three pieces of dialogue can appear anywhere in your story – but must remain word for word (you can however change the full stop to a comma if you’re adding the speaker’s details after). It can be external or internal dialogue, as long as it remains in quotes.
