Let's stretch the short story muscles we located this morning. I'm going to post a few images to jump start your imagination. You can use one of them to start your story or go out on your own. I've got scifi, fantasy, and tried for some non-genre images as well. All found on google images. (Can I complain about how hard it is to find fully clothed people in the first two genres?)
Decide who your character is and what choice they have to make. What will be the consequences?
Write a short story for us--500 word MAXIMUM--and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org with Shorty as the subject line.
I'll post them the rest of the week for comments.
