Week 2 was: Here be Dragons!
During this second week, we accepted flash fiction stories of up to 500 words that dealt with dragons! We got exciting adventures that considered what type of dragon was being hunted, why it was being hunted, what was the motivation, and what was the outcome? Our writers asked: Is our hero prepared, unprepared, self-deceived about being prepared? What’s the dragon’s point of view? Several surprised us with a twist!
