Writing Challenge: Flash Fiction

Here’s a simple writing challenge for you today. In honor of our upcoming flash fiction contest (more details to come,) we’d like you to try this out:

Write a piece of flash fiction (we’ll define that as a story under 400 words) incorporating the following things:

  • A magic trick
  • A retired firefighter
  • The line: “It’s something I’ve lost.”

Have fun!
