After the madness that is the A-Z Challenge, it’s time for one of our favourite prompts here at Fiction Can Be Fun. Yes, it’s pick a new release of an old (out of copyright) book at Project Gutenberg.
To pick your prompt, pop onto the Project Gutenberg site, feeling free to have a browse while you’re there, before heading over to the Recent Books section. Then pick one that you like the look of. The title of your chosen book forms the title and prompt for your story.
Word limit : 500 words (ish)
Deadline for your story : 11th May, 2 pm GMT
A reminder to new readers/writers, please post on your own site and add a link in the comments section below. If you don’t have your own blog or similar outlet, do send us your story via the contact form on the About page and we’ll post for you, with an appropriate by-line.
Two caveats if you want to go down this route: if you want to retain the copyright, then you will need to state this, and this is a family show, so we reserve the right not to post anything that strays into NSFW or offends against ‘common decency’.
