Welcome to Thursday 360!
Are you a Christian writer? Think you can write a mind-blowing short story in 360 words or less? Let’s see what you’ve got!
Here’s How it Works
New posts will publish here on Thursdays. Write a 360-word (or less) flash fiction story based on the photo prompt (featured near the bottom of this post) and enter it in the comments section below. The results will be posted the following Thursday along with the new prompt. Winner will get the opportunity to display the Champion’s Badge on their website.
Rules and What-not
The rules are pretty simple. All entries for the current challenge must be posted by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, Monday, April 13th. They must be original, unpublished stories inspired by the photo prompt and they must have no more than 360 words (title doesn’t count). Stories don’t have to be Christian in subject matter, but cannot contain foul language, erotic, anti-Christian content, etc… (Let’s try to keep it G-rated, folks.) By posting, you attest that your entry conforms to these rules; I am in no way liable if it doesn’t. I reserve the right to reject/delete anything that does not follow the rules.
All entries remain the property of their authors.
Results for Last Week’s Challenge
Effectual Fervent Prayer Availeth Much by Charles W. Short: The story of a man praying for his church not to be destroyed by a man full of hate, for God to let his church remain, even if it be for just one more day. While I probably would have gone with a different ending, I still appreciate the truth and bravery of this piece.
Midnight Faith by Daleen Cowgar: This is a piece full of beautiful hope. It’s not necessarily flash fiction, but I’m still glad it was submitted. Thanks for sharing this, Daleen.
Champion: Charles W. Short
Here’s your e-badge, Charles.
