We’ve got another great tradition to celebrate Tuesday evening this week that will keep me, at least, pretty distracted. I hope you have a thrilling yet safe and happy New Year’s Eve. Although we won’t be having our traditional #5MinuteFiction contest this week, we do have a prompt, which we’ll play the same way we did last week.
Instead of the traditional contest, I’m giving you a prompt today that you will have until tomorrow night at midnight to post (no more than 500 words please, even if the comment box allows more).
The next step will depend on how many stories we have. If necessary, a poll will be up all day New Year’s Day (Wednesday) and the top 5 entries will be featured, in the order submitted, through the next 5 days (with the possible exception of Friday).
Your writing prompt: Your character’s name was just pulled in the national lottery. They will be executed in one year. To compensate, they’ve also received $100,000 directly to their bank account. How does your character plan to achieve his/her bucket list within that time, assuming they cannot touch any other savings (since their family will need it after they are gone)?
* If you’re still feeling creative, you are invited to join us over at Tipsy Lit Prompted as well. You have until Friday to enter that flash fiction contest.
