So, everyone enjoying the Rapture? Heaven never looked so nice, wot? :D Anyhoo...... A month late, but here it is, the NINTH installment of dmf's ever-loving Inkbunny Writing Challenge, the (usually) roughly-twice-monthly writer's prompt exclusively on Inkbunny (although the stories may not be exclusive to IB-- A couple authors have posted Writing Challenge entries also on FA, and I'm kosher with that)....
Or is this just a dream?
(#9 Dream-- Get it? No... You're too young if you don't, I guess. :) )
But.... Since this is the 74th anniversary of that most remarkable of west-coast bridges, the Golden Gate Bridge at San Francisco, CA (well, tomorrow, the 28th, is), as it falls on the Memorial Day weekend here in the US, a week after the Rapture That Wasn't ("Ooops, I meant October 21- Silly me!" Give it up, Mr. Camping- You're a fraud and charlatan, and you've swindled millions out of your faithful followers who are too feeble-minded to be skeptical of doomsday prophecies), and I've been having a HELL of a time catching up on events that would've been perfect for posting Writing Challenges (May Day, Cinco de Mayo, Mother's Day, 10th Anniversary of the death of Douglas Adams)... It's about friggin' time I posted this! :P
SoOoOoOoOo then, what's going to be this installment's Challenge?
Well... I decided this Challenge's species would be.....
FIREFOX! (aka sankam, red panda, lesser panda...)
And for the other two keywords?
SERVICE (as in public service, military service, etc., in honour of Memorial Day)
FUTURE (for that ill-fated doomsday prophecy! :P )
So there it is, then! As usual, submissions can be short-short (perfect for summer weather!) or long-in-the-tooth, clean or dirty (oOoOoOoOoh!), serious or funny-- Whatever! :) Anything goes, as long as the three keywords are used, with only one caveat: I don't expect the obvious! There is NO expiry date, but if you're going to write something, please at least give me a heads-up that you've either got something or have something in mind (as usual). Stories may not necessarily be tied to events that the Writing Challenges are posted around-- That's moreso for my convenience, unlike a certain other well-known writing prompt that is connected to a day of the week (and a phrase, whereas mine uses keywords).
Below is a list of past and current Challenges, with links to all submissions for each.
