It’s day three of our Infinity-inspired, calendar-centric flash-fiction contest. You’ve already written about the far future and the distant past. So you must know what is coming next: the less-distant past!
Your challenge: Write a story of 100 words or fewer, set on this date:
Today’s Date: December 31, 1924
You have until 11:59 p.m. ET on June 15, 2012 to enter. The Figment team will choose the 10 best entries from the entire week and send them to Rachel, who will choose one grand-prize winner to receive copies of Numbers, The Chaos, and Infinity, and a $25 Amazon gift card. For every daily prompt, the Figment team will also choose one winning entry. Each of those five writers will receive copies of Numbers, The Chaos, and Infinity.
