If you enjoy writing short stories, check out the Fiction Friday challenges by Jeanne at The Raisin Chronicles.
This week's challenge was/is: to write a piece of "flash fiction" - a short story of 100 words or less that begins with the phrase -
Here's my story for this week.
Oh God, the smell when I stepped into Tim’s bedroom made me feel I had entered a parallel universe. Not that I was wholly unprepared. The entire apartment was strewn with empty pizza boxes, broken tortilla chips, dried vomit and partially-emptied beer bottles.
But the bedroom...was the Eighth Dimension of Stench.
Tim only looked dead. Wished he was dead.
“I think that perhaps…”
His every pause was filled with groans accompanied by deep, loud and improbably-long farts.
“I may possibly…
the beer farts.”
“Really?” was my sarcastic response.
From now on, it’s whisky and coke for me.
(100 words - on the dot)
