August Flash Fiction: Day 10
Yesterday was one of those days where I was so certain I was close to the word limit once I was done writing that I was honestly surprised when I was almost 150 words over! Then I had to edit it down to meet the challenge, and maybe even make the storytelling even tighter.
How has your editing process been? Has it been hard to write enough or are you struggling to edit?
Today's a small word count day, so good luck in editing!
Each day a new post with a picture (with a CC0 license), word count limit, and occasional additional twist will be published at 7:00 am EDT. You will then have until the next day's post to write your story.
You can then either keep it to yourself (a perfectly valid way to participate!) or you can share your story itself in the comments, or share a link in the comments where we can read your story (blog, Instagram etc.)
My daily story will be added to the post under the picture within the same deadline.
Aug. 10 Word Limit: 65
Extra Challenge: Don't use the word "crash"
Aug. 10 Image Prompt:
The carcass was a marker.
It began as a marker of time.
And then as the people came and went, but the husk remained, its history blurring through half-truths and eroding memories, it became a marker of distance. 1,500 paces away from the settlement for the average woman.
The edge of safety.
