Flash Fiction Challenge #5

You’ve made it to the end of our challenge… How are you doing? Nailed it? Let’s see…

25 words please. TWENTY FIVE words only.

Your prompt? Four words you should never say…

Points to remember –

Make every word count. Carefully chosen details can convey more than long descriptions. Make your title pull its weight!

Post your piece with title and your name/pen name in the comments section

If you would like to offer feedback to other writer’s – do so respectfully.

Make sure I can contact you at the end of the challenge if you’d like your work promoted here.

Deadline for posts is the 28th of June


  1. Four words you should never say to your mum: You are being hysterical. She knows it and doesn’t give a fuck.

    Five words you should never say to your dad: Mum says you’re the boss. It’s decided. You won’t be going to the party.
