Like I’ve said during my Friday posts: I’ve been busy at work planning for Summer Reading. What does that mean? It means I don’t have a lot of time to write–at least, not write chapters in my current stories that I think are up to the quality they should be. And yet it is story day on the schedule, so… quite a dilemma. But then I thought it might be fun to try my hand at some “flash fiction.” It would be a good writing exercise for me and still (hopefully) provide an enjoyable read. So I found a prompt and challenged myself to write that story in only 500 words or less.
Prompt: Write a “want ad” for an unusual position.
Wanted: One Arch-Nemesis
Must be maniacal, clever, and ruthless.
Prior experience not necessary.
Maniacal laugh a plus.
Must have working knowledge of any or all of the following: Nuclear fusion, chemical biohazards, abnormal psychology.
Mutation or madness considered equivalent experience.
If interested, please begin diabolical plan and broadcast it. I will meet you at the most opportune moment for heroics.
